Part of the Spanwise Adaptive Wing Project.

They seem to have, like a lot of the youtube video's, an unhealthy fixation on musical accompaniment.  It is soooooo last decade, peeps.

Those are certainly multi-role device:
   - inlet pressure ctrl
   - power generation (scalable - this why they are pipes and not con-centrics walls) (+ the added benefice of vorticity break down)
   - Fluidic ctrl at exhaust level and/or  Swirl number ctrl.

P.S. If I'm not mistaken, "bomba a collisione" and "idrobomba" was some sort of glide bomb/torpedo devices? But I haven't heard of "bomba alata mulinacci"

Quite interesting book, anyway. Thank you for the index! Is there a way to purchase the ebook version?

Sorry Dilandu,
I re-read your post now:
talking about ONLY controlled weapons, the book contains info about the ARP (Aereo Radio pilotato, i.e. the known radio controlled SM-79), and the Aeronautica Lombarda AR (ad hoc built radio-controlled aircraft).
The other weapons described in the book are NOT guided/controlled.

Bye

No problem; and thank you!

About the abovementioned "flying bomb" projects,  APR and AR - are there specific technical data about them?  You see, I'm working on a series of articles (on Russian) about  guided weapons of WW2 era, specifically about non well-known designs of Japan, Italy and France. While the WW2-era guided weapon systems of USA, Germany and to lesser extent Britain are well-known, the Japanese, French and Italian projects are almost completely unknown, especially in Russian military historical literature. So, I'm trying to found out as much as I could about them.

a Ground /Air Forces network from unmanned to larger manned for CMTs across the entire battlespace. IADs is nothing particular. They all have to be dealt w/ from close to far.

Vehicle APS makes tanks part of the IADS

Fixed sites (Fixed Critical target) w/ Counter PGM part of the IADS.
