The M-77 Oganj is a 128mm self-propelled multiple rocket launcher developed in the former Yugoslavia. NATO designation is the YMRL-32

Development[edit]

Development started in 1968. Prof. Obrad Vucurević, Mechanical Engineer at the time, and Chief operating officer of the Artillery department of Military Technical Institute Belgrade, developed and managed construction and production of the M-77 Oganj.[1]

The prototype, based on a FAP 2220 6x6 truck, was shown to the public for the first time in 1975. Serial production started two years later. The M-77 is mounted on FAP 2026 BDS/A 6x6 truck bed. The rocket system is placed on the back of the platform with 32 128mm launch tubes capable of reaching targets 20,600 metres away. The crew consists of five men.[2]In 1994 Serbia developed new version called Oganj C with designation M94. Oganj C(M94) could fire two type of rockets M91 (cluster-type warhead) and M77 (HE warhead).
