This is a model of unknown scale of the Bullpup B, an air-to-ground missile also known as the Bulldog AGM-12C. Initially developed 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.
The model's manufacturer is unknown. John and Cynthia Heyde donated it to the museum.
