Why downvote? Music is universal even if its communist music. :)

I think Russia has one of the single best languages in the world. If in song, you don't need to understand it to appreciate it. I remember hearing this story from my aunt that my cousin, now working as an English teacher in Moscow, that when he went to a pub in the same city, some men recognised him as being Australian as he was talking in an Aussie accent with some friends. The men started singing one of these choir-style songs. My cousin couldn't understand it that much, only listen. Then they finished and said for my cousin and his friends to sing a song from Australia. Their eyes shifted from one another, all thinking the same thing: "What could we Aussies possibly have that's comparable to that display?" Then they started singing in nervous unison;
"Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda, you'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me..."

And "Katyusha" isn't that communistic, just a song about a girl wishing luck to a soldier on a service on the borders. So have an upvote from me :)
@MasterofMetal: Well, I'll take that as compliment :)

Description

In mid 1938, the Jet Propulsion Research Institute of Leningrad was ordered to develop a mobile mount for the launching of multiple RS-132 aircraft rockets. The eventual winning design consisted of 16 launch rails attached to a simple frame that could be moved to aim at the target. The nickname "Katyusha" came from a popular wartime song of the same title.

Initially shunned by the artillery branch because of their long reload time and low sustained fire rate, they were ordered into mass production following successful combat trials. While not as accurate as normal artillery, the launchers had several advantages. The noise and effect caused fear amongst the German's, who knew the weapon as "Stalin's Organ". They were also cheaper to make and required less complex machinery than howitzers.

The BM-13, and its derivatives the smaller BM-8 and larger BM-30 were mounted on a wide variety of trucks and in a wide variety sizes. Initially, ZiS-5 and ZiS-6 trucks were favoured, but the BM-13 design was soon standardised onto the newly available Lend-Lease Studebaker US6. Our Katyusha and Studebaker were made by Toddel.
