#3 Maybe it's me. But that missile doesn't have the usual conformation of a SLBM, where the vertical is precious, and more room given to the wide. Dunno. Maybe it's the scale.

#4 Also I think it's got a pre-booster, which falls off very quickly.

#5 The Arihant's 4 tubes are subdivided to hold 3 K-15 missiles.
The subdivision structure can be removed to fit the K-4 missile which is a much fatter beast.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
