    It had no terminal guidance though, so its CEP was something like 250-300m, which did not really matter when armed with a nuke warhead, but made it useless in conventional war with a conventional warhead.

    This limited their use to WWIII only... improvements to this missile have led to the current conventionally armed models used in Syria against all sorts of targets... a much more useful system.

    Nice pics BTW.
