I have never been able to figure out for which missile system it is for since I came to know about it 2 years back.

It is for use in naval use and is used to cycle a cannister ( containing a missile ) from stowage position to firing position and then after missile is fired , move the empty cannister back to stowage position. The system is in service.

I am certain it is not for SS.BN / SL.BM since the SL.BM cannisters fit in tightly into the SS.BN silos. So which missile in naval inventory and which naval platform it is for is something which will be interesting to know, if we ever get to know about it.

Don't you think we should start working on masking & camouflaging our installations/launchers as random crap?

Something like this...
...or this? View attachment 61100
Camouflage has its purpose but strategic and certain tactical systems requires positive access to C&C during deployment so total EMCON is a very tough ask , so inspite of physical camo , there is a good probability that hostile SIGINT / ELINT assets will discover the presence and even the location.

The 2nd pic is from a cartoon lol

Back when it was revealed that Kolkata-class will only have 4x8 Barak SAM's, there was a meltdown on this forum. Then came the rumors that there's a rotating assembly beneath the launcher which will replenish the empty canister (or something similar, can't remember) ... :noidea:

mat ground surfacing CL-70

View attachment 31211
(viii) MAT GROUND SURFACING (MGS-70)
Mat Ground Surfacing CL-70 is a track-way expedient which provides smooth movement of tracked and wheeled vehicles during the movement of troops in marshy terrains, shallow waters of up to 1m depth and soft soils.






I think this is the MAT (see the two long metal trackway) in field conditions

That is a decoy launching system. This looks similar to the system on use on Vikramaditya. The missile is very similar to the PK-2 rocket propelled countermeasure system which is used as a chaff/flare dispenser and also uses RF decoys to confuse incoming missiles.

Attaching the video of it. See from 0:20 seconds onwards.
