Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell us about the history of the development and combat using the weaponry and also about its features. Compile a list of air, ground, or naval vehicles that feature this weapon system in the game.

Vehicles equipped with this weapon

General info

Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the bomb.

Effective damage

The TT-250 has the capability to destroy any tank in the game, even those that are large and very heavily armoured. The direct high explosive damage dealt on impact is enough to instantly destroy a Maus, so any other tank stands little chance of survival. There is a degree of splash damage, although it is generally only effective against small and lightly armoured vehicles. Any direct hit to a tank is very likely to destroy whatever it hits.

Comparison with analogues

The TT-250 is largely unlike any other rocket in the game, and thus effectively has no direct analogues. However, there are other rockets that are used in a similar manner, only not to the same degree of effectiveness.

  • M13 Rocket - The M13, used on the BM-13N, has similar constraints as the TT-250 such as a minimum elevation that is a positive angle. The BM-13N does have 16 rockets although they only have around 5 kg of explosive mass, which can still devastate lightly armoured vehicles, but will struggle to defeat large tanks and may need multiple rockets to disable or destroy them.
  • S-24 Rocket - The S-24, found on several Soviet fixed and rotor-wing aircraft, has a similar weight (235 kg) to the TT-250. However, it has far less explosive mass (25.5 kg) which requires a direct hit on a vehicle to inflict damage.
  • Tiny Tim Rocket - The Tiny Tim, used on American fighters and attackers, is an example of a large diameter rocket (298 mm) intended for demolition / anti-shipping use. While the explosive power of the Tiny Tim is only about half (63.5 kg) of the TT-250, it has a semi-armour piercing warhead which does allow for significant damage or total destruction against a target if directly hit.

Usage in battles

Describe situations when you would utilize this bomb in game (vehicle, pillbox, base, etc)

Pros and cons


  • Incredible destructive power which can destroy nearly any vehicle with a direct hit
  • Splash damage capable of inflicting severe damage on lightly armoured vehicles with a near miss


  • Minimum elevation of launcher prohibits direct fire, giving a minimum range of nearly 0.25 km
  • No guidance system and only two rockets available, meaning that aiming is both very difficult and missing is extremely punishing


Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of this weapon. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.


An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
