M4-UT TEL vehicle with KEBABOM theater ballistic missile en route to firing range..total annihilation is closer than what the enemy thinks..

Rejimen Artileri Diraja is reported had chosen the Kinetic Energy BAllistic Burst Obliteration Missile (KEBABOM) as its theather ballistic missile battery. The KEBABOM (NATO reporting name SS-31M Seriously) is among the national ballistic missile initiative which had seen various involvement from local varsities,technical college and weapon manufacturers forming the Malaysian Executive Resources Chosen UNilaterally for ROcKETery (MERCUN ROKET)...a GLC consortium responsible in overseeing the progress and development of the KEBABOM initiative.
Pernama is informed that the ballistic missile is a 40-970km range terminal guided theater ballistic missile mounted on a Deftech M4-UT Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL). The M4-UT could carry three KEBABOM missile with the abilty to launch all three simultaneously.The missile 8 kinetic energy warhead capable of separating and bursting simultaneously above target location in mid air to give massive annihilation on a large scale to enemy cities or military installations and concentrations.
The development of the missile began in the late 1999s where the first prototype were built.The first flight test took place on December 20, 2003 on a modified Avibras Astros MLRS launcher before being replaced on Deftech M4-UT TEL vehicle.
It has single solid rocket stages with inertial, autonomous flight control utilizing an onboard GPS receiver.As a solid propellant design, the missile can be maintained on alert for prolonged periods of time and can launch within minutes of being given the order.
According to MERCUN ROKET the missile is designed to be immune to any current or planned U.S missile defence system. It is claimed to be capable of making evasive maneuvers to avoid a kill by terminal phase interceptors, and carries targeting countermeasures and decoys. It is shielded against radiation, EMP, nuclear explosions at distances over 500 meters, and is designed to survive a hit from any laser technology.
One of the KEBABOM most notable features is its short engine burn time following take-off, intended to minimize satellite detection of launches and thereby complicate both early warning and interception by missile defense systems during boost phase. The missile also has a relatively flat ballistic trajectory, complicating defense acquisition and interception.
8 missile batteries will be formed under Rejimen Artileri Diraja - Bateri Peluru Berpandu Balistik where each batteries will consist of 12 units of M4-UT Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) vehicle and 4 control vehicle.Future plans by MERCUN ROKET includes a SLBM version of KEBABOM capable of being carried by RMN Super Scorpene Carrier Submarine the KD Sadinmakanorang and a ALBM version which can be fitted on RMAF Extremely Long Range Heavy Manned Bomber (ELRHMB).
