Model no #82926 1/72nd scale
The SS-23 "Spider" tactical ballistic missile ("Oka" missile) was created by the Soviet Union after the Cold War to replace the outdated "Scud" ballistic missile. The development began in 1977, the first flight test was conducted in 1978, the production was officially launched in 1979, and the Soviet army was equipped in 1980. After the NATO discovery, the missile was given the code name SS-23, nicknamed "Spider". The deployment of the SS-23 missile gave Warsaw a certain advantage over NATO on the European continent. By the mid-1980s, the Soviet army could use SS-23 tactical ballistic missiles to attack NATO airports around the clock. The range of SS-23 was 500 kilometers and the speed reached Mach 9. NATO did nothing to combat these weapons. However, restricted by the "Guide to the Treaty", SS-23 was eventually destroyed in the late 1980s.
