Vickers Guided Weapons by John Forbat

Book Description

Looking at missile and avionics systems, with diagrams and photographs, and the trials and their effects on missile design, and telling the story of the company and its individuals and interactions with governmental bureaucracies, this volume also goes through certain projects at length, including Red Rapier, Blue Boar, Red Dean and Vigilant anti-tank missile (the author was responsible for many of the trials). It will appeal to both professionals in international aviation and weapons industries and the military, as well as to non-engineering qualified readers interested in the military history of advanced weapons.
