    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.

    We had a troll infesting this board claiming that the replacement for the Scalpel had no significant payload capacity. This
    is, of course utter BS. There has been a clear 100% increase in the energy density of Russian solid rocket fuel compared to
    the 1980s. So the Scalpel can be replaced with a missile that weighs about 50% of the original and able to carry the same
    10 x 550 kt payload. Modern MARVs means that the number of warheads is reduced. But total payload isn't.

    The RS-24 is not the replacement for the SS-24: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BZhRK_Barguzin
