A bulk of North Korean ground-based firepower is tied up in self-propelled, towed and rocket-projected artillery systems. The M-1991 falls into the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) class of weapons and has been in service since the late-1980s / early-1990s. Inspired by the truck-based rocket projecting vehicles of the Soviet-era, the M-1991 is a locally-produced wheeled system and marks one of the farther-reaching rocket launchers in North Korean Army service.
The rockets hold a range from 40 to 60 kilometers with the launcher able to clear the 22 rocket load in just forty-four seconds. This makes the M-1991 one of the more potent rocket assault vehicles in the North Korean inventory behind the KN-09 series.
