The Katyusha (Катюша, Russian diminutive form of the female name Katherine) is a multiple surface-to-surface rocket system. The basic Katyusha tactical rocket warhead contains two munitions, which are dispensed above the target in mid-air. Each dual-purpose bomblet is armed during freefall by a simple mechanical orientation system which allows concentration of the multiple launchers' shots over the same area. The effects of the explosion and the intense impact, both physical and psychological, make the Katyusha rockets extremely effective against infantry and light vehicles
