The Douglas Skybolt was to be America's
first air-launched ballistic missile (ALBM). Developed in 1959 by Douglas
Aircraft for use on the B-52H strategic bomber, the Skybolt was to carry
a single nuclear warhead at speeds of Mach 9 up to a range of 1,000 nautical
miles. In May 1960, Great Britain negotiated the purchase of 100 Skybolts
for use on the RAF's Vulcan bombers. The Vulcans were to carry two missiles
apiece, one under each wing. However, cost and reliability problems caused
the United States to cancel the entire program in late 1962.
This kit comes with TWO Skybolt models,
each one with a different head and pylon.

Le Skybolt devait être
le premier missile balistique lancé par avion (ALBM). L'Angleterre
négocia l'achat de 100 de ces missiles capables de déposer
une tête nucléaire à 1000 NM afin d'en équiper
les bombardiers Avro Vulcan. Le programme fut abandonné en 1962
par le gouvernement américain.
