The SA-13 Gopher, called Strela-10 (Arrow‑10) by its Russian crews, is a tracked, amphibious Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) system. It replaced the wheeled SA-9 Gaskin which could not keep up with tanks in rough terrain. The missiles have both optical and infra-red guidance, with a radar system to check that the target is in range.

The Soviet Union’s most powerful forces are stationed in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, poised on the border with West Germany ready to strike at a moment’s notice. They are equipped with the very best Soviet industry has to offer, from sophisticated missile firing T-80 and T-64 tanks, powerful T-72 tanks, and tough, reliable, and upgraded T-62M and T-55AM tanks to versatile BMP infantry fighting vehicles, as well as plentiful BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers. Supported by elite Afgansty Air Assault troops, powerful self-propelled artillery there will be little that the corrupt capitalist armies of NATO can do to stop them. Soon the western workers will be free and the dawn of a new socialist age will begin!

Step 1. Begin assembly by adding the tracks. there are left/right indicators on the back of each track to ensure they are put on the correct way. Below: Left and Right tracks attached.

Because the missile launcher system is quite heavy, it may be unstable at times. Instead of simply placing it into the hole in the hull, you may prefer to use rare earth magnets for improved stability.

Rare Earth Magnets (XX105) are available through the online store here...

These 1mm x 5mm magnets are strong enough to hold the missile launcher firmly in place.
