Old talk[edit]

Czechoslovakia didn't use this missile just because Czechoslovakia didn't have any carrier for it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.176.48.24 (talk) 09:12, August 27, 2007 (UTC)

Anab?[edit]

Could someone with a philiogical background comment on the word Anab? Reporting names like Apex or Aracher (AA-7 & AA-11) make more sense, but what does that word mean? A combination of A and the verb (to) nab?

Maybe one day espionage data will be declassified for research on how such names were chosen and by whom...

The only Anab I'm familiar with is the name of a town near Hebron in the Middle East. And here I had always misread the call name as Ahab. The Dark 17:58, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
I believe - and it's just a guess - that it may refer to the Judean town of Anab from which Joshua expelled the Anakim, a sort of fallen heavenly being. Askari Mark (Talk) 04:23, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

"Kaliningrad"[edit]

Why was it named after Kaliningrad, the post-1945 Russian name of the former German city of Königsberg? Sca (talk) 21:59, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

It's not. The designation refers to the former name of Korolyov, Moscow Oblast, where it was designed. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 09:21, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
