   The Teruel 1 multiple launch rocket system was developed in Spain in the mid 1970's. The original variant was followed by the Teruel 2 and finally the Teruel 3, which entered service with the Spanish Army in the early 1980's. Around 100 of these multiple launch rocket systems were built by the Santa Barbara for the Spanish Army. A small number was exported to Gabon.

   The Teruel 3 has 40 launching tubes for 140.5-mm rockets, arranged in two packs. The standard rocket is 2.04 m long and weights 56 kg. It has a range of 18 km. An extended-range rocket is 3.23 m long and weights 76 kg. Both types of rockets are fitted with HE-FRAG or cluster warheads. Cluster rocket can be fitted with 6 anti-tank mines or a number of anti-personnel mines. A full salvo of 6 Teruel 3 launching vehicles can cover area of 2 hectares.

   A fire control system includes ballistic computer, navigation system and meteorological equipment.

   The Teruel 3 is based on the Pegaso 3055 6x6 general utility truck. Vehicle is fitted with a diesel engine, developing 220 horsepower. This truck has an armored cab providing protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters.

   Reload rockets are carried by escorting utility truck, which carrier four packs of 20 rockets. Rockets are reloaded manually by the crew.
