Thanks for the photos/video of the LAND-LGR4 in use! I wonder what they’re using for laser designation/fire control.

Arnold Defense supplies the LAND-LGR4 to L3 as the launcher for the APKWS, mounted on an EOS Defense R150s, but L3 places it on their own palletized design for the Vehicle Agnostic Modular Palletized ISR Rocket Equipment (VAMPIRE) along with a dedicated fire control system and L3’s own WESCAM-MX10 RSTA camera for ISR/designation.

What’s interesting (to me anyway) is that in the thumbnail of the video you linked there doesn’t seem to be any method to rotate the LAND-LGR4 besides pointing the vehicle in the direction you need the Hydra to go. I wonder if the APKWS could be slaved to a laser designation provided by a forward system such as a drone - it would make for a very effective surface-to-surface platform. Also interesting that the (presumably) Arnold Defense palletized design doesn’t really clear the roof of the Humvees. Wonder if it would clear the roof of something like a Land Cruiser.

Sorry for the rant, I spent way too much time researching all the parts and the knowledge won’t leave my head haha

Cheers!

Denys gives a very even handed review of what happened a day after. He is Ukranian living in I believe Poland. Is a pilot and has very good and interesting comments about air events in the war and at times in Gaza. I watch his blog every day for the past 6 months.

I’m not being obtuse, but is it possibly part of the building that appears to be behind this vehicle?

Wouldn’t more of the building be visible on the sides if a chimney comes up like that?
A lone chimney is often standing where a house has burned down …

Speculate no more, it is a toast rack.

But where is the teapot?
