History[ | ]

Class: Heavy Flamethrower System
Developed: 1997
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: N/A
Operators : N/A

Let's start with the name TOS, which stands for "heavy flamethrower system" in Russian. This is due to the fact that the Russians consider thermobaric launchers and weaponry in general to be an evolution of flamethrowers much like the Shmel hand-held thermobaric rocket launcher that was developed during the war in Afghanistan.

The initial project was ready in the August of 1972 and consisted of a T-72-based rocket launcher with a three-kilometer range, an ammunition truck and new incendiary unguided rockets. The next few years were spent developing incendiary rocket mixtures until the design was more or less realistic and was approved for further, more detailed development in 1976. That's where the name "Buratino" appeared first – it was a designation for the entire project. The word itself comes from a popular Russian children tale by L.N. Tolstoy, in which Buratino is a wooden boy – essentially a re-telling of the Pinocchio tale. Some sources claim the name was chosen because the protruding rocket fuse resembled Buratino's nose.

The first two prototypes appeared in 1978 and 1979 and were successfully tested in Afghanistan in 1988. The Buratino was officially accepted in service in 1995, although it wasn’t until 1999 when it was first officially shown in public during the Second Chechen War.

Even during the very first engagements, it was clear that due to its relatively low range of three kilometers or so, the Buratino had a problem as, unlike the other self-propelled artillery pieces in Soviet and later Russian service, it sometimes found itself within the range of enemy retaliation. Additionally, when reloading or deploying to fire, the Buratino was completely defenseless.

To address these issues, a project called TOS-1M was developed in 1997 in Omsk, featuring 30mm autocannon for self-defense, improved optics, fire controls and longer range.

The TOS-1M variant was never built and the Buratino was replaced by the more famous TOS-1A Solntsepyok in 2001.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Marksman: This vehicle can fire advanced ammunition from its accurate weapon, allowing it to destroy enemy armor at long distances.
  • Unguided Rockets: This vehicle can fire rockets that, unlike ATGMs, cannot be guided once in flight.
  • Missile Salvo: This vehicle may fire multiple ATGMs or unguided rockets in a short period of time, potentially overwhelming enemy defenses such as the APS.
  • Unmanned Turret: This vehicle features a remotely-controlled or low-profile turret that receives reduced damage.
