SAAB RB 05A AIR-TO-GROUND MISSILE (Sweden)
Released from its pylon under the wing of a Swedish "Viggen" fighter, the RB 05A uses active radar guidance to home in on ground targets more than 20 miles away, and is claimed to be effective against certain airborne targets (helicopters?) as well. The RB 05A is capable of reaching speeds in excess of Mach 2.5. SAAB also used this airframe for an experimental, television guided version, the RB 05B, but the Swedish government chose to buy Maverick instead, and the RB 05B never went into service.
Big and beautiful! The SAAB RB 05A is a clean, streamlined rocket that achieves stunning altitudes despite its large size. At 31 1/4" in length, this aerodynamic missile uses powerful "D", "E", or "F" motors for liftoff, and the kit includes our tough 18" octagonal Mylar parachute for gentle recovery. Add this gorgeous rocket to your International Collection today. The SAAB RB 05A is a historic missile that looks as good on the display stand as it does in flight!
