OTR-21 Tochka

1.2 Scarab B

OTR-21 Tochka (Russian: -

() ; English: Tactical Operational Missile Complex Tochka, Point) is
a Soviet short-range tactical ballistic missile. Its GRAU
designation is 9K79; its NATO reporting name is SS-21
Scarab. It is transported in a 9P129 vehicle and raised
prior to launch. It uses an inertial guidance system.

The improved Scarab B (Tochka-U) was passed state tests

from 1986 to 1988, introduced in 1989. Improved propellant increased the range to 120 km (75 mi). CEP signicantly improved, to less than 95 m (312 ft).

The OTR-21 forward deployment to the German Demo- 1.3 Scarab C

cratic Republic began in 1981, replacing the earlier
FROG series of unguided artillery rockets.
A third variant, Scarab C, was developed in the 1990s.
Again, range increased (185 km (115 mi)), and CEP decreased to less than 70 m (229 ft). Scarab C weighs 1,800
kg (4,000 lb).
1 Description
The OTR-21 is a mobile missile launch system, designed
to be deployed along with other land combat units on the
battleeld. While the FROG-7 is large and relatively inaccurate, the OTR-21 is much smaller. The missile itself
can be used for precise strikes on enemy tactical targets,
such as control posts, bridges, storage facilities, troop
concentrations and airelds. The fragmentation warhead
can be replaced with a nuclear, biological or chemical
warhead. The solid propellant makes the missile easy to
maintain and deploy.

1.4 North Korean variant


At least 15 Tochka missiles were deployed by Russian

forces from August 811 during the 2008 South Ossetia

North Korea has developed a local variant, the KN-02

Toksa (Viper), by reverse-engineering Syrian-supplied
Scarab A missiles.[1] The Toksa has a range of 120-140
km, and it is the most accurate ballistic missile in KPA's
inventory to date. In 2014 an enhanced version was tested
at a range of 220 kilometres (140 mi).[2] The KN-02 uses
a MAZ-630308-224 truck instead of the 9P129. Some
reports suggest North Korea is developing an anti-ship

amphibious, with a maximum road speed of 60 km/h
(37 mph) and 8 km/h (5.0 mph) in water. It is NBCprotected. The system has been in development since 2 Use in combat
1968. Three variants have been created.
Russia used the missiles in the Chechen Wars.[4]

Scarab A

The initial Scarab A entered service with the Soviet Army

Unconrmed reports said that the Ukrainian Army red
in 1975. It carries one of three types of warhead:

482 kg (1,063 lb) of conventional HE
The Syrian Army red at least one Tochka against the

al-Nu'man, in the province of Idlib) in December 2014.[9]

The minimal range is about 15 km (9.3 mi), maximum

range is 70 km (43 mi); its circular error probable (CEP)
is estimated to be about 150 m (490 ft).
