Rocket design

Unguided aviation rocket S-8КОМ-BE PRACTICAL consists of a warhead 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 to 1,3s

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 PRACTICAL is from the class "air to surface" and is used for training the personnel of different Air Forse units to use S-8KOM, S-8KOM-BE and S-8KOM-MBE by firing at firing range targets by airplanes and helicopters. The S-8KOM-BE PRACTICAL rocket marks the hit by flash and smoke.
