Rocket design

Unguided aviation rocket S-8КОМ-ВЕ consists of a warhead with a mounted piezo-electrical fuse system and a rocket motor.

The rocket motor is composed of solid ballistic fuel and in the temperature range from 213 К to 333 К has the following characteristics:

  1. sum impulse of the thrust - from 5394 N.s to 5984 N.s;
  2. working time - from 0,45 s to 1,3 s.

A modern method for manufacturing from pre-shaped aluminum pipes is being used for the construction of the housing.

Intended use

Unguided aviation rocket S-8КОМ-ВЕ is from the class "air to surface" and it is intended for destruction of:

  1. armored ground targets (tanks, self-propelled artillery, armored vehicles and armored personnel carriers);
  2. unarmored ground targets (specialized machines, radar stations, airplanes and helicopters on the ground etc.);
  3. enemy troops;

List of aviation carriers

Unguided aviation rocket S-8КОМ-ВЕ is used as ammunition for Russian-made airplanes and helicopters.

The S-8KOM-BE Unguided aviation rocket is intended for launching from the following launcher pods:

  1. B-8 rocket pod with 20 tubes and its modifications B-8-0, B-8M, and B-8M1;
  2. B-8V20-A rocket pod with 20 tubes;
  3. B-8V7 and B-8S7 rocket pod with 7 tubes.

Storage and transportation

The unguided aviation rockets are stored in wooden packing in closed warehouses. In field conditions they are stored under sheds or tarpaulins that prevent direct moisture or sunlight. The unguided aviation rockets S-8KOM-BE are transported in their packaging during all kinds of transport.
