The Soviet Union was an early, enthusiastic user of rocket weapons, employing them as early as the 1930s. The S-24B is a very large, powerful unguided weapon and one of a handful of successors to the earlier world war II era BETAB-750DS rockets, and its contemporary, the U.S. Tiny Tim rocket.
The S-24B is 2.33 meters (7 ft 8 in) long, with a launch weight of 235 kg (518 lb). It has a 123 kg (271 lb) blast-fragmentation warhead. Its range is about 2-3 kilometers (1.3 - 1.8 miles). The S-24B is carried individually on weapon pylons, rather than in pods.
