S-13 Rocket

The S-13 rocket was an unguided 122mm rocket weapon developed by the Soviet Air Force for military aircraft use, which still serves in the Russian Aerospace Forces and some other countries. The S-13 rocket is a traditional Russian rocket, which has been introduced and mass-produced by the Chinese People's Liberation Army long ago, with a very large amount of weapons and equipment. Basically, every fighter jet can carry this rocket without guidance.

The standard S-13 rocket has a range of up to 6 kilometers and has a variety of warheads to choose from. The S-13T rocket, for example, is designed to be used against bunkers and runways, and can penetrate 6 meters of soil or 1 meter of reinforced concrete. S-13OF fragmentation anti-personnel rocket, warhead explosion can form more than 450 pieces of 23 to 35 grams of shrapnel, and the effect of killing personnel and vehicles is significantly. The S-13DF high-explosive rocket has a 40-kilogram charge that can blow anything into the sky.
