|R-12B: short-range ballistic missile
study by the german Groettrup team in Russia, 1948.
The R-12B was the second stage of one of the firsts IRBM studies.
It was to be a A-4 (V2) replacement of wich it used the modified engine. The conical shape was choosed because of aerodynamic stability.
The complete missile, the R-12, also had designation as G-2 and R-6. We are now releasing only the second stage but we are working on the complete two stages rocket and the first stage will probably be available in the future.
A base is provide for the kit presentation.
