I saw this being posted on the internet. If there's one thing we have learned in the Ukraine war, it's that time to deployment and how fast you can scoot away can make a big difference against opponents with equal-ish artillery and with counter battery radars are very important.

So my question would be, does anyone know how long it takes to fire and to pack up and leave after firing? How fast can they be replenished? Same story for our howitzers.
IMO Loading is not a big problem. Turkish MLRS vehicle seems to me too long, heavy and bulky comparing HİMARS. Recall what HİMARS stands for .

May be Turkish variant should be lighter, shorter and more maneuverable.

Also i would like to see Turkish tracked MLRS like M270. Tracked Variant could infiltrate into enemy lines and would be not bulky.

@tornadoss Video was great

We need such tracked beasts in order to accomplish wheeled MLRSs

S.Korea is working on unmanned K9 Howitzers, here is a roadmap;

K9A1 5 crewed - K9A2 3 crewed - K9A3 2 crewed operating two other howitzers remotely

Not sure if this is the future of artillery, but interesting concept based on existing platform similar to our Firtina Howitzer

An image shared by a member named Shuff Shikan from Defense.pk from the IDEAS fair. I think this photo was taken from the MKEK stand. Does anyone know the model of the vehicle ?

The system which will be developed in cooperation with Asfat and BMC, signed in IDEF2021, aimed to develop 8x8 truck-mounted Panther system. Within the scope of the project, 40 8x8 truck mounted Panther artillery will be delivered to Turkish army. This will likely be final system to be dwlivered to the army.

I think this is adoption of Turkish truck mounted howitzer program (Yavuz) to Pakistani Panther howitzers. Different carrier platform and data-link or C2 thus likely a different name is given to the project.

Pakistan has Panther howitzers. MKEK offers to mount existing Panther howitzers on top of a platform desired by Pakistan.

Ukrainian accounts reports that TRLG-230 seen in the Ukraine, below people claiming it's from Karabagh war but, it seems the footage they shared is not same as in Karabagh. Need verification though.
Not true, if you fire it from 70km away, you can easily find this terrain in many of those region, which is called Aran, basically most Azerbaijani land before Karabagh war was like this on Karabagh front line except some. Even Agdam itself is not mountains area

Mortars are very versatile weapons and this modernization increases the capability of mortars a lot. There is also a guided mortar round project. 120mm mortar has a range of over 8km and it is possible to hit some Greek islands near the Turkish coasts with small fire teams for devastating accuracy and effect. Mobile mortar teams are very hard to spot if you don't have a networked and integrated surveillance structure.

Mortars was the biggest problem in Karabagh war. It showed that its really hard to fight with artillery against them in mountains area as mostly there are being late.
