The Serbian LRSVM Morava modular self-propelled multiple rocket launcher was spotted with the Libyan National Army.
At least two Morava rocket launchers appeared during the Dignity 2020 drills, which were held by the LNA earlier this month. The launchers can be seen in an official video of the drills shared by the LNA’s media office on November 14.
The Morava rocket launcher was designed by the Serbian Military Technical Institute to provide subsystem modularity, allowing the use of rockets from different calibers.

The system can launch 107 mm, 122 mm and 128 mm unguided rockets with ranges between 8 and 50 km, like the Serbian-made Plamen A, Plamen B, OGANJ, GRAD and G-2000. The rockets are pre-loaded in pods.
The version spotted with the LNA in Libya was based on a FAP 1118 4 x 4 cross-country military truck that provides a good tactical mobility.
The LNA likely received Morava rocket launchers from the UAE, the only known customer of the system. At least 30 rocket launchers are in service with the UAE’s armed forces, some are based on Nimr 6 × 6 chassis.
The UAE is the main backer of the LNA. Abu Dhabi provided the LNA with weapons as well as aerial and intelligence support in the last few years in an attempt to overthrow the Muslim Brotherhood-aligned, Turkish-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli.
