Vehicles equipped with this weapon
The S-24 is a HE rocket type in War Thunder with a peak velocity of 410 m/s and minimal launch angle variance. The S-24, alongside the smaller S-21 and S-1of rockets, are often called "Tiny Ivans" due to their similar usage in ground battles to the Tiny Tim.

Comparison with analogues
Usage in battles
In War Thunder, the S-24 has a timed fuse so it may be used against aircraft and the strong explosive filler allows it to be used to knock out MBTs, pillboxes and even ships with 80 mm penetration and a TNT filler of 25.5 kg.
Pros and cons
- Excellent anti-everything tool
- It can take some time getting used to the different ranges which the rocket should be launched from if you intend to hit aircraft
The S-24 was an unguided rocket intended for anti-infantry and other light target ground strikes with a ground proximity fuse which can be set between 3 and 33 metres with a forward direction biased shrapnel spray. Initially, it did not have a proximity fuse, however, this was added later as testing showed over 70% of the shrapnel was uselessly embedded into the ground in the vicinity where the rocket landed.
An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
