   The LRSVM (Lanser Raketa Samohodni Visecevni Modularni) or Lanser artillery rocket system was recently developed in Serbia by the VTI military technical institute. It is also referred as Morava. This artillery system is being proposed for Serbian military. Field trials were successfully completed in 2015. It is planned that the system will enter service with a Serbian Army by the end of 2015.

   The LRSVM artillery rocket system is intended for unexpected and rapid strikes against enemy troops and non-armored vehicles. This system features high firepower, long range, high operational and tactical mobility.

   The LRSVM uses a modified version of the Oganj 122 mm launcher. It has modular containers for 122 mm and 128 mm rockets. It can fire standard 122 mm BM-21 Grad rockets, newly developed Grad-M and Grad-2000 extended-range rockets, as well as 128 mm rockets of the Oganj and short-range rockets of the Plamen. This multiple launch rocket system carries two modular rocket pods with 16 Grad, or 12 Oganj rockets each. Full capacity is 32 122 mm or 24 128 mm rockets. Maximum range of fire is 35 km with 122 mm rockets.

   A standard version of the LRSVM has fully-automatic aiming controls. Launching vehicle is fitted with a GPS unit for automatic positioning. It may posses a Serbian fire control system. Vehicle has ballistic computer with automatic or manual data input and firing elements computation. Rockets are launched directly form the cab or remotely form the vehicle. The LRSVM can fire single rockets or full salvo. A crew of three prepares this artillery system for firing within 45 seconds. It leaves firing position within 30 seconds.

   While travelling the rocket launcher is covered by hydraulically operated canvas cover, which makes it hard to recognize, as vehicle looks like an ordinary light utility truck. Also it protects the launcher from adverse weather effects.

   The LRSVM launcher is mounted on the Serbian FAP 1118BS cross-country truck with 4x4 configuration. It is powered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 904 LA turbocharged diesel engine, developing 174 hp. This military truck is fitted with a central tyre inflation system, which is controlled from the cabin. The LRSVM has an operational temperature range from -30C to +50C.
