15А11 (SS-17) Missile
The missile was derived from the 15А16 missile by adding a special-purpose telecommunication nose cone with a high-performance radio transmitter. The transmitter ensured a guaranteed reception of combat orders by all command posts and launch pads of Strategic Rocket Forces under nuclear attack, and used active electronic countermeasures during the nose cone coast flight.
Altogether seven launches were conducted during the flight development test program.
The missile complex was in service in 1986 – 1995.
