Description: The 9K79, SS-21 Scarab NATO-codename and Tochka Russian nickname, is a short range ballistic missile designed to act as long range field artillery. It is a single-stage missile powered by solid fuel rocket motor and guided by an Inertial Navigation System (INS). Blast, fragmentation, submunitions, anti-radiation, and tactical nuclear warheads can be integrated in the Tochka missile.

The 9K79 Theater Ballistic Missile (TBM) is mounted on a 6x6 all-terrain Transporter Erector and Launcher (TEL) vehicle. In addition, a tactical re-loader vehicle and a missile carrier have been provided to the 9K79 Tochka TBM system to facilitate the TEL's reloading operations.
