The BM-21 Grad is a Soviet truck-mounted multiple rocket launcher (MRL) system that has been widely used by many countries around the world. The designation “BM” stands for “boyevaya mashina,” which translates to “combat vehicle” in English. The “21” in the designation refers to the caliber of the rockets, which are 122mm. Key features of the BM-21 Grad include:

The Grad launcher is typically mounted on the chassis of a wheeled truck. This provides mobility to the system, allowing it to be rapidly deployed and repositioned.

The Grad system fires unguided rockets, and each launcher typically holds 40 rockets in a series of launch tubes. These rockets are often equipped with high-explosive warheads.

The BM-21 Grad is designed for area saturation rather than precision targeting. When fired on masse, the rockets can cover a large area with explosives, making it effective against enemy personnel, vehicles, and structures.

The Grad system is known for its simplicity and effectiveness. It is relatively easy to manufacture and operate, making it a popular choice for countries with less advanced military capabilities.

The Grad launcher has been mounted on various truck chassis, and there are also versions adapted for different purposes, such as naval platforms.

The BM-21 Grad has been widely exported and used by many countries, including former Soviet states, Middle Eastern nations, and others. It has seen action in numerous conflicts since its introduction in the early 1960s.

This vehicle blueprint includes desert and forest camouflage textures, a fully rigged structure, and various animated components such as machine gun rotation and elevation, and opening hatches. Additionally, it comes with a detailed damage model that includes damaged geometry, textures, and realistic fire and smoke effects. The blueprint also features firing animations and dynamic dust effects generated by the movement of the tracks.

The asset is designed as a standard Unreal vehicle with an interior, but it can be customized to suit specific project requirements. It is fully drivable, utilizing physics simulations provided by Epic Games’ Chaos Vehicles plugin. Please note that the Chaos Vehicles plugin must be enabled for proper vehicle movement. The scene incorporates Epic Games’ Volumetrics plugin for environmental clouds and utilizes Lumen for advanced lighting effects.

A sample showcase/demo Blueprint is included with an environment map and a user interface (UI). When you “Play” the map, the UI provides camera presets, sliders, and buttons to showcase the key functionalities of the vehicle.

 

Disclaimer:

This asset includes the use of Epic Games’ Volumetrics plugin and Chaos Vehicles system plugin for demonstration purposes only. However, the vehicle asset can be utilized and modified in personal projects without these plugins enabled.

The Volumetrics plugin is employed to create and render the environmental clouds within the scene, utilizing its volume creation and rendering tools. The Chaos Vehicles system plugin allows for realistic vehicle movement by utilizing advanced physics simulations.

Please note that all rights pertaining to the Volumetrics plugin and the Chaos Vehicles system plugin are the exclusive property of Epic Games. Vigilante makes no warranties, expressed or implied, regarding the usage of Epic’s plugins.

  1. Thanks for the models, all are great for populating or learning as I am a simple hobbyist learning unreal engine. I have been spending a lot of time using a top view 2d engine but need to do something in 3d for a change.

  3. Only gets a 4 as by default in 5.2 and 5.3 the projectiles collider with the launcher tubes. Not a difficult fix though.
