The S-1of is a Soviet air-launched rocket with a diameter of 212 mm. It is a anti-infantry and soft-targets tube-launched high-explosive rocket.
Vehicles equipped with this weapon
The S-1of is a HE rocket type in war thunder with a peak velocity of 440 m/s. However, because the S-1of is only found on the MiG-15bis ISH in a mount pointed downwards, it requires particular special circumstances to be utilised effectively.
|Maximum speed||440 m/s|
|Explosive mass||9.3 kg TNTeq|
|Ammunition|| Type of
|Penetration @ 0° Angle of Attack (mm)|
|10 m||100 m||500 m||1,000 m||1,500 m||2,000 m|
The S-1of is a HE rocket type with 9.3 kg of TNT and approximately 35 m fragment dispersion radius with 61 mm armour penetration.
Comparison with analogues
Very similar to the S-21 in performance, but usage technique is drastically different due to its firing angle of approximately 25 degrees.
Usage in battles
While intended for ground strikes, the best place to use this rocket is for destroying air targets due to the awkward firing angle. Currently only the MiG-15bis ISH has these rockets so the following Pros and Cons are in reference to this aircraft using them.
Pros and cons
- Comes with timed fuse
- Can be used while dodging aircraft in a head-on situation simultaneously
- Destroys lightly armoured vehicles upon direct hits
- Excellent tool for acting as an air defence interceptor against the bomber spam in simulator battles
- Remaining tube launchers after all rockets have been dispensed has zero drag
- Detonating effects can easily overpressure most tanks when impacting almost anywhere on the roof surfaces
- Because it points downwards, it can be awkward to aim.
- Unreliable against tanks due to the extremely narrow firing timing if you want to score a direct hit
- Aiming may be easier for joystick pilots by unloading (pushing the stick forward) to increase the time the CCIP cursor stays on target
- Fragmentation radius is very small
- Slows down the MiG-15bis ISH by roughly 200 km/h and climb rate by 16 m/s
