    From wiki:

    Compared to other artillery, these multiple rocket launchers deliver a devastating amount of explosives to an area target quickly, but with lower accuracy and requiring a longer time to reload. They are fragile compared to artillery guns, but inexpensive and easy to produce.

    How very Soviet Union-ish.

    It’s why the PPSh was beastly. So awesome, even the Germans used it.

    I didn’t say it didn’t work. It’s just the way the Soviet Union did things.

    Actually, most WW II historians would argue that the German counter to the Katyusha was the Nebelwerfer. In more recent occurance the Katyusha has been used by Hezbollah to strike at non-military targets inside Israel prior, during and after the 2006 war.

    “Quantity has a quality all of its own.” Said, appropriately enough, by Stalin himself.

    Just look at what mass bombing runs did for Dresden and Viet Nam…all “dumb” bombs too.
