    SCALE - (RIM-24) Tartar Gallery

    Welcome to the SCALE (RIM-24) Tartar Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the (RIM-24) Tartar and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Estes: Tartar: #01360
    ModelRockets.us: RIM-24 Tartar 2.6: #01038



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!



    The General Dynamics RIM-24 Tartar was a medium-range naval surface-to-air missile (SAM), and was among the earliest surface-to-air missiles to equip United States Navy ships. The Tartar was the third of the so-called "3 T's", the three primary SAMs the Navy fielded in the 1960s and 1970s, the others being the RIM-2 Terrier and RIM-8 Talos.

    The Tartar was born of a need for a more lightweight system for smaller ships, and something that could engage targets at very close range. Essentially, the Tartar was simply a RIM-2C Terrier without the secondary booster. The Tartar was never given a SAM-N-x designation, and was simply referred to as Missile Mk 15 until the unified Army-Navy designation system was introduced in 1963.

    The Tartar was used on a number of ships, of a variety of sizes. Initially the Mk 11 twin-arm launcher was used, later ships used the Mk 13 and Mk 22 single-arm launchers. Early versions proved to be unreliable. The Improved Tartar retrofit program upgraded the earlier missiles to the much improved RIM-24C standard. Further development was canceled and a new missile, the RIM-66 Standard, was designed to replace it. Even after the upgrade to a new missile, ships were still said to be Tartar ships because they carried the Tartar Guided Missile Fire Control System.

    Estes - TARTAR - #1360

    This was one of my favorite kits. I built it the first time from scratch using the Estes Designer kit. After 2 flights the Sky gods took it. C6-5 was a little to strong that day.
    Found this kit on ebay a few years back. Finally built and completed. Looking forward to see it soar again, this time with stock paint job. Click image for larger version.

    Just flew my 4" Tartar for the first time last weekend. Looked GREAT on the pad, but kind of veered a bit on ascent. Maybe to little thrust.

    Nonetheless, one of the best looking designs in our sport IMHO!

    Report back with launch info and pics...I for one will be anxious to hear about it!

    It's called "Sport Rocketry" not "Sport Motors"
