FROG-2 3R-2, Mars

The Russian The FROG-1 [ Free Rocket Over Ground] and FROG-2 were the earliest of the Soviet large free rockets. FROG-1 can be distinguished by its large, bulbous nose and by the large transporter-launch vehicle based on the JS heavy tank chassis. FROG-2 is a smaller rocket, also with a bulbous nose, but transported by and launched from a light-tracked vehicle derived from the PT-76 tank chassis. Both FROG-1 and FROG-2 are considered obsolete today and are no longer in first line units.
