The R-3S (AA-2 "Atoll") air-to-air missile was developed by the Soviet Union as their equivalent of the AIM-9 Sidewinder missile.  It was used extensively by the Soviet Union on its fighters and it was exported widely to its allies. 

In conjunction with Eduard's release last summer of its new MiG-21MF kit, Eduard released several photo-etch and resin accessory sets for the kit.  This set is actually the combination of two other sets: MiG-21MF pylons (672 184) and R-3S missiles for MiG-21 (672 185).  As a result, the set not only provides replacement pylons for all five stations, but also four R-3S ("Atoll") air-to-air missiles and their associated launch rails.  Buying this set instead of the other two sets individually will also save you a few bucks as the suggested retail price of this set is $3 cheaper than the combined price of the other two sets.
