Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Higher explosive payload than a single RP-3.
  • Near-misses are a little more forgiving than with an RP-3
  • Higher penetration than the RP-3
  • Direct hits against most Coastal boats or small Bluewater ships will usually be fatal.

Cons:

  • Extremely heavy
  • Low velocity
  • Planes can only carry 2 rockets
  • Compared to the Tiny Tim or RP-3, it has a very bad weight-to-damage ratio

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />.
