The R-17 Elbrus, GRAU index 9K72 is a tactical ballistic missile, initially developed by the Soviet Union. It is also known by its NATO reporting name SS-1C Scud-B. It is one of several Soviet missiles to carry the reporting name Scud; the most prolifically launched of the series, with a production run estimated at 7,000 (1960–1987). Also designated R-300 during the 1970s, the R-17 was derived from the R-11 Zemlya. It has been operated by 32 countries and manufactured in four countries outside the Soviet Union.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-17_Elbrus)
PRN-80 (version of S-8) Developed in the 1970s, the S-8 is an 80 mm (3.1 in) rocket used by fighter bombers and helicopters. The system entered service in 1984 and is produced in a variety of subtypes with different warheads, including HEAT anti-armor, high-explosive fragmentation, smoke, and incendiary, as well as the specialized S-8BM runway-destroying munition and the S-8DM fuel-air explosive variants. Each rocket is between 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in) and 1.7 meters (5 ft 7 in) long and weighs between 11.3 kg (25 lb) and 15.2 kg (33.5 lb), depending on warhead and fuse. Range is 2 to 4 kilometers (1.3 to 2.6 mi).(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-8_(rocket))
PRN-122 (version of S-13) The S-13 is a 122 mm calibre unguided rocket weapon developed by the Soviet Air Force for use by military aircraft. It remains in service with the Russian Air Force and some other countries. The S-13 rocket was developed in the 1970s to meet requirements for a penetrating weapon capable of cratering runways and penetrating hardened aircraft shelters, bunkers and pillboxes, to fill a gap between 80 mm and 240 mm rockets and fulfill a role similar to the 127 mm Zuni rocket. The S-13 is conventional in layout, with a solid rocket motor and folding tail fins that provide stability after launch.
The meshes are autogenerated with RSB-Rocket Stage Builder (https://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=7104)
This project creates stages/rocket/launchers that are not custom created for Orbiter. Visualization improvments will come later as Rocket Stage Builder tool evolves.
Real specifications are used as data are available. Some data may contain aproximations(were no data are available).
Last update:- rename GRAD-21-122 to PRN-122- added PRN-122 meshes (PRN-80 meshes were used before)- improved descriptions
Launchers:- PRN-122 - Cape Midia- PRN-80 - Cape Midia- R-17 - Kapustin Yar V-2
