Answer . A spy plane took a picture of the where the missiles were being stored.
Missiles have a guidance system, a "brain" (computer), telemetry gear, warhead (or payload), fuel, and fins. They are either active, semi-active, or passive. Active means that they send out their own RF (radio frequency) trying to identify the target. Think of it as a dolphin trying to find a fish …using echolocation. It's the same principle. The reflected RF is returned to the missile and its computer adjusts its current course accordingly to the target. A semi-active missile has a third party source transmitting RF towards the target and the reflection is returned to the missile. A passive missile uses RF emissions from the target as it's homing. Essentially, the target itself is telling the missile where it is. ( Full Answer )
To answer your question, we have to know what sort of missiles you are talking about. In a nutshell, the missile has it's warhead (also known as a "payload"), it's homing device (depending on whether it is active, passive, or semi-active), it's computer (used to determine when it will explode and if… it is a directionally charged warhead, at what angle it will detonate), it's fuel, and synchro's and servo's for it's "wings". \n. \nIn a passive missile, the missile relies on reflected RF (radio frequencies) from a third party source off of the target which gets reflected to the missile. From the reflection of the RF off of the target, the missile knows where the target is and it's computer will adjust it's fins (wings) to accommodate it's flight path.\n. \nIn an active missile, the missile uses it's own RF emitted from the nose cone to locate that target. Think of it as a dolphin trying to find fish in the ocean. It's like sonar, on crack. \n. \nSome missiles have "point detonation" while others have various other forms. The most common for anti-ship missiles and "bunker busters" is a delayed detonation. This allows the missile time to go through any barriers and detonate from the inside out. That is why they are so effective.\n. \nFor anti-aircraft missiles, they are usually "shaped directional" warheads which means that once the missile is within a certain proximity of the aircraft, the computer directs its charge in the direction of the aircraft. So, if the missile is on a flight path to fly underneath the aircraft, it will detonate its warhead upwards. Shaped means that the actual explosion has a deliberate shape to it, usually in a cone form, with the cone expanding towards the target. Missiles of this nature rely on shrapnel damage as opposed to the concussive blast generated by the warhead itself. \n. \nI hope that answers your question. ( Full Answer )
Answer . missile is also a rocket but the difference is that, it hold explosive for mass destruction. a rocket is just use to propelling vehicle like in satellites etc. missiles are self guided by the help of inertial navigation system.
Solid fueled missiles are just that. They are propelled by a solid fuel. For an everyday example of that, pick up an Estes rocket kit from Michael's craft store and look at it's propellant.. Liquid propelled missiles us a liquid propellant, like your car. Liquid propellants also require a second ox…idiser, either air or stored oxidiser to burn, solid propellants generally have the oxidizer mixed in. Solid fueled rockets typically can be handled rougher as they are more stable than their liquid counterparts. Hope that answers your question. ( Full Answer )
A cruise missle is a long-ranged tactical guided missle launched from an aircraft, ship, submarine, or land-base launch platform. They are extemley fast and accurate, and are used for precision strikes on military intallations such as command bunkers or air bases. A cruise missile is not very fast …(subsonic) compared with rocket-propelled missiles which do not need wings, but fly on their own forward momentum. A cruise missile is jet-propelled which gives it a much longer range, but it needs small wings to stay in the air because of its lower thrust-weight ratio. The German V-1 of 1944 was the first cruise missile, just as the V-2 was the first ballistic missile. In the 1950's, the US Navy launched V-1s (called Loons) from submarines, but the sub had to proceed to the launch point on the surface. Later, a watertight storage cylinder allowed the sub to proceed to the launch point while submerged, but it still had to surface to launch its Regulus cruise missile. These subs were diesel-electric, and although the nuclear-powered USS Halibut carried Regulus missiles in an internal hangar, it still had to surface to launch them. Today, a USN cruise missile submarine carries multiple Tomahawk cruise missiles in individual launch tubes, but it still must surface to launch them because a cruise missile is an air-breather, unlike ballistic missiles which can be launched from submarines while underwater. [Note: this is incorrect. Cruise missiles can be launched from underwater - they are simply shot out of their tube by compressed air or a small rocket motor. Once they reach the surface, their jet turbine engine is then activated.] Several countries use cruise missiles, but the USN Tomahawk is the best known. The USAF had its own cruise missile in the 70's, using the B-52 bomber or 747 airliner as a launch platform. Improved technology allows a cruise missile to stay closer to the ground (or water) than the old Nazi V-1, which makes them more difficult to counter. The V-1 could be shot down by fighters or anti-aircraft fire. Their accuracy has also improved. The V-1 simply flew to its approximate target whereupon the motor shut off and it dropped like a bomb; hence the name flying bomb, but a Tomahawk can hit its target with great precision. A cruise missile can be thought of as a kamikaze plane without a pilot. It flies to its target like an airplane and then blows up. ( Full Answer )
In the 1200s to 1400s, China has been using unguided missiles in warfare, making them the first to use the self-propelled missile. The missile they used today has (normally) the same amount of power as, an example, AIM-9 Sidewinder.
The warhead on a missile will blow up, at least on one so equiped. Also, there is a "destruct" charge aboard to knock the missile down if something untoward happens and controllers want to "stop" it. Oh, and the fuel may blow up in an accident of some kind.

A ballistic missile is a term that defines a missile's flight path. There are two types of flight paths as far as missiles are concerned: approach angle control and ballistic. \n. \nA ballistic flight path describes a missile that is launched to a high altitude and adjusts itself to "fall" onto the… target. That is how ballistic missiles are capable of such long attack distances. They fly high into the air and, depending how far the target is, either drop on top of it or simply glide to it.\n. \nApproach angle control describes a missile that reaches it's target under it's own power. Meaning, it's fuel is pushing the missile all the way until detonation. This differs from a ballistic flight path because, generally speaking, a ballistic missiles booster fuel is used up completely by the time it reaches it's apex of it's flight.\n. \nHope that answers your question..

It depends on the type of missile. Some Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) are stored in underground silos in a ready state. Some may be stored in underground or above ground sheilded bunkers. Air to Air Missiles for fighter aircraft are usually stored in above ground bunkers.

It is a nuclear weapon that does not require other means oftransport, such as a plane or carrier. But can be launched and"steered" toward a target or automatically find its target. (Note:only a handful of countries hold the funds and technology tomanufacture these weapons)
A missile is a rocket that has a guidance system that can steer the vehicle after launched. A rocket has none such system; basicaly, point-and-launch.
A smaller missile will usually detonate by means of an electrical impulse sent by a contact device, while larger cruise missiles and nuclear devices often contain sensing devices that are programmed to detonate when they are at a certain distance from the target. Tiny devices such as mortar shells a…nd RPG rounds usually have blasting caps that are impact sensitive. ( Full Answer )
An anti-tank missile is accelerating from the moment the rocket motor is ignited. That means it is going faster and faster at each moment until it strikes its target or runs out of fuel. Most missile systems possess this characteristic, that is, they don't have a cited "top speed" because of the var…iability of the speed reached based on the distance to target. In the case of just one missile system, the Javelin (and not the surface-to-air one), the missile has a 2,500 metre range, and can get easily achieve mach numbers at longer ranges within its designed reach.

Well if you are comparing it to a rocket, for example, the advantages include; . They are guided. . Some are "fire and forget" which means you don't have to keep a lock on a target after launching the missile . There is a massive variety of missiles each suited to a particular Job. . A lot of… them don't even need an actual visual of the target from the operator, meaning they can lock on even if you can't see the target. . Some are incredibly nimble, being able to tun 180 o in a matter of seconds. There are far far more, but those are the most basic advantages of using a missile rather than, for example, a rocket.

its not spud but "SCUD" missile.its a Russian missile but in NATOs code its called a scud missile.it was developed during the cold war.
There are several differences. A ballistic missile is rocket powered, takes off straight up, and the warhead falls to its target. A cruise missile is jet powered with wings, like an airplane without a pilot, and it flies following the earth until it reaches its target, whereupon the warhead is deton…ated. . Ballistic missiles hit their target using a rocket-assisted ballistic parabola and is a form of indirect fire. This means that the warhead is boosted on the upward journey, and uses the momentum from the launch to reach the target. Missiles don't have to be rocket-assisted, but it greatly increases their range. A cruise missile heads directly towards its target using aerofoils like an aircraft to follow a pre-programmed route to the target, the downfall is that the range is significantly smaller.

A missile has three major components. The propulsion system moves the missile and contains the fuel. The guidance system steers and guides the missile on its flight. Then there is the payload, typically an explosive.
If you pronounce it MI ssle, It could be bristle, whistle, thistle, etc. But if you mean miss ILE , it can be infantile.
Lots and lots. ICBMs and IRBMs are both types, as well as a wide range of anti-ship missiles, land attack cruise missiles, and other more eccentric varieties.

SAMs (Surface to Air Missiles) which gained notoriety during the Vietnam War (shooting down B-52 bombers/and fighter bombers) are for air defense and are part of the air defense system; as were deployed by North Vietnam during the war. ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles=Nuclear Warheads/At…omic Weapons) were to supplement or replace manned bombers which were offensive weapons (aircraft=bombers) to strike enemy cities and other targets (missile sites, sea ports, air fields, repair facilities, ammuntion depots, factories, etc.).

Basically, a deactivated missile. Typically, an inert missile will either be a purpose built dummy, or a live missile, with its propellant and warhead removed.
Missiles are disassembled by special experts who know how to handle the nuclear devices and to properly dispose of them. It costs about a million dollars to take them apart and they can take as long as two weeks. There is a show on Discovery com that shows these experts taking them apart. The US gov…ernment has had well over a thousand taken apart. It is classified where the nuclear materials are stored. ( Full Answer )
There are three types of Missiles - those that go air to air, those that go from ground to air or air to ground and torpedo that are designed to only go underwater
Surface to air is shot from the ground into the air at the target. Air to air is fired from another aircraft. Actually there is very little difference. just where the missile is fired from. Of course, there can be many more surface-to-air missiles (SAM) than air-to-air (AAM) because an enemy aircraf…t can only carry a limited number. ( Full Answer )
Yes, although not in the same sense as, say, an air-to-air missile. They're programmed prior to launch. . Technically, a ballistic missile is, by definition, unguided, as it follows a trajectory dictated by pure physics (hence, the name "ballistic"). However, the vast majority of modern balli…stic missiles are equipped with a warhead which does have a guidance package. So, the ballistic missile is launched, and follows a predictable flightpath. At some point, the warhead deploys, and then, the warhead can steer itself onto target. In some cases, (such as nuclear ICBMs), the warhead is actual a subassembly (called a "bus") which contains multiple actual warheads, and the bus itself is guided. In other cases, the warhead is a single package with guidance and steering integrated into it. The key here is that the missile itself is unguided, and follows a standard path, while the warhead package may or may not contain guidance. ( Full Answer )
It MIGHT be able to lock onto a tank, but it wouldn't destroy one. AA missiles are designed to fragment (much like a hand grenade), which sends shrapnel into very thin-skinned aircraft. This would be incapable of penetrating a tank, which has very thick armour, and requires a different type of warhe…ad to defeat it. ( Full Answer )
Are you looking for anything in particular that one can't destroy? Because a mission can just about blow up anything.
The jet takes in air from outside and burns the oxygen in it with fuel to produce thrust, the missile with its rocket engine carries oxygen internally in chemical form and needs no air with which to burn the fuel carried in a separate tank.

The German A4/V2 Missile was a Ballistic Missile. A ballistic missile is a missile that follows an sub orbital ballistic flightpath with the objective of delivering one or more warheads to a predetermined target. The missile is only guided during the relatively brief initial powered phase of flight …and its course is subsequently governed by the laws of orbital mechanics and ballistics. Up to now all ballistic missiles have been propelled during powered flight by a chemical rocket engines of various types. ( Full Answer )
No, the word 'missile' is a noun, a singular, common, concrete noun; a word for an object that is forcibly propelled at a target, a word for a thing.

The LGM-30 Minuteman is a US land based intercontinental ballisticmissile (ICBM). It is the first solid fuel instant responseballistic missile in the US arsenal, meaning it could be launchedinstantly at any time (unlike the liquid fueled ballistic missilesalready in use when it was originally made t…hat took 30 minutes orlonger to fill with liquid fuel and oxidizer before they could belaunched). It has three rocket stages and carried nuclearwarhead(s). President Kennedy decided in early 1962 that we would field 1000Minuteman missiles (an overwhelmingly large force considering thatthe previous Titan liquid fueled ICBM was only fielded 52 missiles)in clusters of underground silos, due to political pressure basedon the incorrect perception that there was a "missile gap" wherethe USSR was believed to have more ICBMs than we did (Kennedy knewfrom CIA spy photos they did not but could not reveal thisinformation to refute the "missile gap") It came in three different versions over time: . 1962 (Minuteman-I) carrying a single W56 thermonuclear warheadhaving a 1.2 megaton yield . 1965 (Minuteman-II) carrying a single W56 thermonuclear warheadhaving a 1.2 megaton yield . 1970 (Minuteman-III) carrying three W62 thermonuclear warheadseach having a 170 kiloton yield The first Minuteman-I installation based at Malmstrom Air ForceBase in Great Falls, MT was almost ready at the beginning of theCuban Missile Crisis and was rushed to completion in case it wasnecessary to attack the USSR at that time. This frantic rush wasfound later to have produced so many errors that the entirefacility had to be completely redone and it is questionable if itcould have even been used had the Cuban Missile Crisis turned thecold war into a hot war. Later on the Minuteman-III the three W62 warheads were replacedwith three W78 warheads each having a 335-350 kiloton yield thenwith a single W87 warhead having a 300 kiloton yield. The singleW87 warhead itself was eventually improved to have a 475 kilotonyield. ( Full Answer )
