Rocketarium SA-2 Guideline Hobby Rocket Kit
This Soviet designed surface-to-air missile was the first to actually take down an enemy aircraft in flight. The SA-2 Guideline was deployed near Soviet cities, such as Moscow, to defend against USAF bombers during the cold war. Later, they were also used in East Germany.
This hobby rocket has three sets of fins, and an expanding tail cone. This unique design can make it fun to build, and exciting to launch on a D12-5 or D17-7. The finished semi-scale rocket stands 26.5" tall and has a fin span of 5.625".
