It's been known that the Americans used captured V-1s as the basis of the JB-2 Loon, and that Northrop built the JB-1 and JB-10 flying wing cruise missiles. However, does anyone have drawings or some other specs regarding the little known JB-5, JB-6, JB-7, and JB-9? Andreas Parsch considers it almost certain that the JB-9 was given the Wright Field Air Material Command designation MX-626.

Note: The JB-8 designation was a short-lived designation for the Boeing ASM-A-1 [GAPA], an early US surface-to-air missile.
