A Soviet ballistic missile that, in 1998, carried the first
submarine-launched satellites, the 8-kg Tubsat-N and the 3-kg Tubsat-N1,
into low Earth orbit. A three-stage, liquid-fueled missile, the Shtil 1
uses its warhead fairing to hold the spacecraft. The Shtil 2 has a larger
separating fairing that can hold bigger payloads.
