(sorry for my English)

In the China Lake website I found these pictures:

Bullwinder looks like Bullpup missile (the smaller one) with Sidewinder's IR guidance head. Bombwinder is a 3000 lb (1360 kg) M118 bomb with the same. Maybe someone have some more information about these missiles?

I take it it's an attempt to develop IR-guided PGMs?

It's certainly not necessarily impractical. Google Colonel Robert K. Mock and some of his wilder exploits during the Vietnam War ;)
