Soviet Missile R-12 in a Museum

Posted on September 7, 2015 by tim

Ukrainian blogger Komariv went to the Soviet Cosmonautics museum and took a few photos of a Soviet R-12 rocket, which was the most mass produced Russian strategic missile. It was first implemented in 1959 and its range is 2,000 kilometers. It carries a nuclear load of 1 megaton of TNT and in the museum it is being displayed on a launch pod. Let’s see some details!

So here is the launching pod. It can be used if needed to hold the missile in a vertical position for long periods of time. The red marks the parts that need to be removed before the launch.

This archive picture shows the actual scale and size of the rocket.
