This is the missile that replaced both the unguided Honest John and the Sergeant ballistic missile. A neat, compact weapons system, it is able to deliver conventional, multiple IR seeking warheads, or M234 (10 kT) nuclear payloads at a speed of Mach 3 with respectable precision. It can deliver these payloads at ranges of up to 75 miles (45 miles with cluster head). Lance is just over 20 feet long, and weighs 3373 lbs. with its nuclear warhead. Other users include Italy, Germany, Israel, The Netherlands, Belgium and Great Britain.
The Launch Pad’s Lance missile is a 1/8.48 scale design for your choice of either the nuclear warhead armed version of the MGM-52 (pictured above) or the conventional warhead missile which uses slightly smaller fins. Both fin patterns are included in the kit! At 28 3/4" in length, its "D" powered liftoff used to get it up and away in a hurry, and testing has now been completed to certify this rocket for use with AeroTech "E" OR "F" power! You should see it move now! The balsa fins provide extra support for the tail cone assembly, and, as usual, our highly reflective aluminized Mylar ‘chute comes in every kit. A fine flier and an excellent scale model of this U.S. Army and NATO weapon. Use our easy-to-construct kit to build this important battlefield support missile.
Now Designed for "F" Power!
