Replacement for unusual handleset

The photo shows the existing entry-door handleset, which is 20+ years old. The doorknob, thumb lever (or whatever it's called), latch and lock are all at different heights -- there don't appear to be any straight-through holes.

Any suggestions on what I should replace this handleset with? Is it likely that existing holes will need to be filled and new holes drilled to accommodate the new handleset?

Thanks.

David

There are door knob lock sets with wrap around steel plates. It's more of an item for a commercial building but that's what you need.

Thanks much for the reply. I never would have thought of that on my own.
