Because of the great demand for long-range fire support during the Gulf War, our army gained experience and began to attach importance to the study of long-range rocket launchers. On the basis of type 83 rocket launcher, not only the WM-80 system has been developed, but also the WS series rocket launcher has been launched in 1996. The maximum speed of the system can reach 85 km/h and the range can reach 600 km. The rocket weight is 150 kg and the maximum range is 100 km.

WS-1 system reaction time is 20 minutes, the launch of four rockets can be completed in 18 seconds. Each rocket launcher is equipped with a transport loader, which can load four rockets at a time and can be completed in less than 10 minutes. As soon as WS-1 was introduced to the international market, Turkey introduced the whole system at a price of $250 million. Later, China introduced an improved WS-1B version of WS-1, which Thailand soon introduced. With the help of our army, Thailand has integrated the WS-1B system into the Army-style Volvo medium truck chassis. After

in 2009, China has launched WS-2 and WS-2D weapon systems one after another, and the preparation time for launching WS-2 weapon systems is only 12 minutes. The rocket weighs 200 kilograms and has a range of up to 200 kilometers. The maximum range of WS-2D is 380 kilometers, and the hit rate has been greatly improved. The shooting accuracy has reached 50 meters, which is almost equivalent to precision guided weapons.

At present, China is still launching new models. After more than 20 years of development, the performance of rocket launchers has been significantly improved, especially their range, which seems to have exceeded the range of long-range rocket launchers in the West. So in recent years, when China launched the system, the American media always shouted that it was a missile, but we used it as a long-range rocket launcher.
