R-36 8K67P
Part of R-36 Family
Ukrainian intercontinental ballistic missile. The R-36P was a version of the R-36 which could deploy three separate (but not independently-targeted) warheads instead of one. The concept was to ensure a wider zone of destruction and overpressure then a single warhead detonation would create.

AKA: 8K67P;Scarp;SS-9 Mod 4. Status: Retired 1970. First Launch: 1968-08-23. Last Launch: 1970-10-23. Number: 20 . Payload: 6,000 kg (13,200 lb). Thrust: 2,366.30 kN (531,965 lbf). Gross mass: 183,000 kg (403,000 lb). Height: 32.01 m (105.01 ft). Diameter: 3.00 m (9.80 ft). Span: 3.35 m (10.99 ft). Apogee: 1,000 km (600 mi).

The US government claimed the spacing of the MRV impacts showed they were targeted on Minuteman silo clusters. Work on the variant began in November 1967. Trials began in August 1968, the missile was accepted for military service on 26 October 1970, and production began in 1971. Beginning in December 1971 and 1974 the missile was deployed to around 100 silos, but the version was retired by 1974 in favor of true MIRV versions of the R-36. However the deployment brought the maximum R-36/R-36P operational silo total to 288 in 1972. These were deployed in regiments of six silos per command point, except at Kartaly, Dombarovskiy, Krasnoyarsk, Derzhavinsk, and Zhangiztobe, which each had at least one regiment with ten silos.

Maximum range: 10,200 km (6,300 mi). Number Standard Warheads: 3. Warhead yield: 2,000 KT. CEP: 1.85 km (1.14 mi). Boost Propulsion: Storable liquid rocket, N2O4/UDMH. Cruise Thrust: 940.400 kN (211,410 lbf). Cruise Thrust: 95,900 kgf. Cruise engine: RD-252. Initial Operational Capability: 1971.
