Actually, the version of TSSAM being proposed for this competition was a derivative of the USAF/USN air-launched version, stretched to attain the necessary range. Doing the stretch itself was a very simple effort given the modular nature of the missile. I know, I was there.

I see that the turbojet powered variant of the Al Hakim/PGM-500/2000 family is missing?

Did the "Pegasus" missile appear at a date later than May of 1993?

I assume ASURA is the ASMP-C entry?

On a similar theme, MANTIS was derived from REVISE rather than them being separate entries. REVISE was a submunitions ejector demonstrator BAeD developed (and captive flew under a Tornado) with the then Defence Research Agency:

REsearch Vehicle for In-flight Submunition Ejection

REVISE Plus was a planned family of stand-off weapons using the same basic (but possible larger) airframe- MANTIS ended up going full circle and was offered as a long-range stand-off anti-armour submunitions dispenser under the name AUTIS (AUtonomous Target Interdiction System).

From an AGM-130 google search, this looks like the turbofan -130E proposal.
