Usage in battles

Describe situations when you would utilise this rocket in-game (vehicle, pillbox, base, etc)

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • High explosive mass: destruction of the target is almost always guaranteed

Cons:

  • Low drag coefficient
  • Difficult to aim

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: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 />.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
