Description

The Roland was part of a mobile S.A.M. system. The missiles were fired from a tube. Different versions were developed by the U.S. Army and the French/German armed forces. The US and European missiles were fully compatible. The US version never made it past the development stage and was never used in battle.
The model rocket comes with a lot of nose weight, required for stable flight. As a result, launches are slow and majestic. The weight limits altitude, which is great for smaller launch sites. This kit includes plastic tail cone with the cluster motor mount. The motors are tilted at an angle for exciting flights.

Challenges

There are two sets of pre-cut fins, one which is glued on the nose cone and a set of channels. Painting the Roland can be a bit of a challenge. There are many areas to mask off.
