This is a model of unknown scale of the Bulldog AGM-12C, an air-to-ground missile also known as the Bullpup B. Initially developed by Texas Instruments for use by U.S. Navy carrier-based aircraft, it had a range of 10 miles, a 1,000 lb conventional warhead, and utilized radio guidance from the launch aircraft. The missile also was deployed with the U.S. Air Force from 1965 until the mid-1970s, and saw service on F-4 and F-105 fighters during the Vietnam War. John and Cynthia Heyde donated this model to NASM on an unknown date.
Gift of John S. and Cynthia H. Heyde.
