An engineering and chemical reconnaissance brigade within the Tibet Military District (MD) of China’s People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) has practised area denial operations through the use of multiple rocket launcher (MRL)-deployed mines, according to video footage released by the district on 14 October via its WeChat account.
根据解放军10月14日通过其微信帐户发布的录像片段,中国人民解放军陆军部队(PLAGF)西藏军区(MD)的一个工程防化旅通过使用多管火箭布设地雷实施区域封锁行动。

Several examples of the MRL were shown in the footage being used during live-firing exercises carried out on what the Tibet MD said was a plateau at an altitude of more than 4,300 m above sea level. The state-owned Global Times newspaper described the system as the MD’s “latest truck-based multiple rocket-propelled mine launcher”, but an analysis of the images indicates that it appears to be a Type 90A MRL: an analogue of the Soviet BM-21 Grad MRL.

The Type 90A is a 122 mm MRL based on a six-wheeled truck with an extended load tray that allows for a second reload of 40 rockets to be carried.

According to the Tibet MD, the test achieved its goal of remotely setting up obstacles and placing mines across a whole area. It also served to comprehensively examine and improve the troops' capability to set up obstacles with advanced weapons and equipment in an environment where temperatures and oxygen levels are low.
据西藏军区说,该测试达到了远程设置障碍物并在整个区域布设地雷的目标。它还有助于全面检查和提高部队在温度和氧气含量较低的环境中使用先进武器和装备设置障碍物的能力。
 
The PLAGF is known to have access to the Type 84 mine-laying rocket, often fired by the tracked Type 89 MRL, which is also operated by the Tibetan MD. The Type 84 122 mm rocket can carry either eight anti-tank mines or 198 anti-personnel mines.
据悉中国陆军(PLAGF)可以使用84型布雷火箭,该火箭通常由履带式89型MRL发射,该火箭也由西藏军区操作。84型122毫米火箭可以配备8枚反坦克地雷或198枚杀伤人员地雷。
