"The Tornado-S is a really massive work. The state trials have been finished with a positive result; we have implemented the design and development work in total…It marks a new era in the industry," Lepin said.

He added that Splav features a large portfolio of MLRS. "We have something to offer to the Russian Ministry of Defense, namely, Tornado-G, Tornado-S, Uragan-1M systems. These developments are new ones, and they have reflected in the Russian State Defense Order (GOZ, Gosoboronzakaz) program. We have increased the production output more than twofold for the last two years," the director said. He added that the company had implemented GOZ-2016 to full degree ahead-of-schedule. Lepin pointed out that the Tornado-G MLRS had been accepted for service in 2014.

According to him, the items of hardware developed by Splav are in high demand on the global market. "The Rosoboronexport company (a subsidiary of the Rostec state corporation) has been increasing the volumes of our production sales in a drastic manner in the recent years. We are working closely with the Arab world, countries of the East, and India. For instance, the Grad MLRS has been delivered to 64 foreign countries since its development in 1963," Lepin emphasized.
