Boeing AGM-131A SRAM II
Published October 09, 2015
The AGM-131A SRAM (Short Range Attack Missile) II was a short-range, self-guided nuclear weapon designed during the Cold War, but it was canceled before entering production. It was a follow-on to the original AGM-69 SRAM, which entered service in the 1970s.
The air-launched, rocket-propelled SRAM II had a range of 250 miles and carried a single nuclear warhead in the kiloton range. It also incorporated a digitally-controlled warhead with improved safety features.
Full-scale development began in 1987, but the SRAM II program ended in 1991 as part of an arms control initiative and because of production problems with the missile's motor.
