We have been doing business WORLDWIDE for more that 8 years. The Bullpup was the first successful guided tactical air-to-ground missile of the U. Although it had severe limitations, it was produced in very large numbers. Development of the Bullpup was initiated by the U.Navy in 1953, when an operational requirement was issued for a short-range air-to-ground guided missile. The two primary goals were to give the ground-attack aircraft a standoff missile to avoid prolonged exposure to enemy groundfire, and to increase the chances of destroying targets which are hard to hit with free-fall bombs like e. The design competition was won by Martin, and in April 1954, the company received the contract to develop and produce the new missile, designated ASM-N-7 Bullpup. It was a relatively small missile with a 113 kg (250 lb) warhead, which was optically tracked and manually guided by the pilot. The first successful air launch of an XASM-N-7 prototype occurred in June 1955, followed by YASM-N-7 evaluation models. In April 1959, the ASM-N-7 Bullpup production version entered U. The majority of the production missiles was built by Maxson Electronics. The ASM-N-7 was a roll-stabilized missile, powered by an Aerojet MK 8 solid-fuel rocket motor, and with a simple derivative of a standard 113 kg (250 lb) bomb as warhead. After visual identification of the target, the pilot launched the missile, and used two small flares at the back of the missile to track its flightpath. Using a small control stick to transmit radio commands to the Bullpup , he manually guided the missile to its target. This system was extremely simple, and therefore the Bullpup could be used with almost every aircraft, even including Sikorsky HUS-1 (UH-34D) helicopters. Of course, this simple manual guidance principle also had severe drawbacks, the main one being that the aircraft, the missile, and the target essentially had to remain in a straight line during guidance, making the aircraft vulnerable to ground fire (and thereby somewhat negating one of the original reasons for using missiles instead of bombs).
The radio command equipment in the launching aircraft was usually an AN/ARW-73 or AN/ARW-77 system. After tests with YASM-N-7a missiles, the improved ASM-N-7a Bullpup A was introduced in 1960. It replaced the solid-fuel motor with a Thiokol (Reaction Motors) LR58-RM-4 liquid-fueled rocket engine with storable propellants, increasing the range of the missile.The 113 kg (250 lb) warhead was also improved.
