    Looks like the seeker of a AA-2 , the russian copy -to the screw- of the AIM-9B sidewinder.

    Most of people tell me that it's probably a Strela-10, is this possible? The proportions seem to be same.

    It looks to me like your dome is rounder than the Strela pic and the vanes on the seeker are missing too.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

    Strela-10 is 120mm in diameter.

    Atoll is slightly larger so it looks like neither of those

    Here are photos of an Atoll seeker, for reference. the middle piece details are a bit different, and Atoll missiles are always white color it seems. The Strela-10 head is slightly conical, while yours is perfectly cylindrical.
