Random nugget: SRAM-II and SRAM-A were considered for the Anti-Ballistic Missile role as part of the LEAP (Lightweight Exo-Atmospheric Projectile) programme. Test flights were successfully launched from B-1 and B-52 aircraft in 1992 and 1993. I'm not sure how far the testing went after that - the reference I have is from 1994 (Robinson, S D & Matlock, R S, LEAP Technology Upgrades to Tactical Missiles Provide Near-Term Options for Theater Missile Defense, NEJ V106 No 2, March 1994).

Nothing like resurrecting an old thread :)

Scans from an info card of the McDonnell Douglas SRAM II offering....

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Any idea on what the payload was for the SRAM-T? This is one nuclear weapons program I think they should have kept running following the end of the cold war. Especially now that they retired the AGM-129 early.

Does anyone happen to have some actual measurements for the AGM-131? Because the public specs (39 cm diameter, 318 cm length, as printed by Designation-Systems.net and Wikipedia) results in a noticeably stubbier and fatter missile than the various museum photos indicate when I try to model it in 3D.
