The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

RL-2 truck mounted air defence system has been created by conversion of standard air-to-air IR homing missile R-60MK into surface-to-air missile, by adding solid rocket booster engine. Concept of operation of RL-2 air defence missile system includes target detection, tracking and identification by acquisition system such as SAR radar or optoelectronic station, which relays target data to the missile system, which slews the missiles to given direction. After target lock-on, which is signaled to the crew by audio signal, the missiles are launched.
