A pair of UB-32 pods under the wingtip of a Mil Mi-24 helicopter.

The UB-32 is a 57 mm, reusable, 32-salvo rocket pod developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s for aerial use in close air support and ground attack situations. Typically, it is mounted on external aircraft hardpoints and fires S-5 rockets. The launcher has a length of 2,080 mm (6.8 ft) and a diameter of 464 mm (1.5 ft). The UB-32 has also been used in improvised manners on the back of armored vehicles and trucks, most recently in the Syrian Civil War and fighting in Libya.[1]
