Air to Ground Missiles (AGM)
Dogfights have always attracted attention. Since the First World War, their participants have been considered heroes, stories have been written about nothing, and they have become idols of generations. However, the reality of air combat is much more prosaic. Whatever the motivation of the pilots to fight, there was always a winner on one side and a loser on the other in a crippled or burning plane falling to the ground. This series deals with the struggle from their beginning to the modern age, when the sky is steadily ruled by jet engines.
In the 1980s, a number of studies were launched in NATO member countries on new types of flat-flying missiles. These efforts eventually culminated in 1986 with a single program called the MSOW ( Modular Stand-Off Weapon ), in which seven NATO nations participated. However, this project did not last very long and ended in collapse at the end of the decade. One of the participants in the MSOW program was Germany, which at the turn of the 80s and 90s tried to develop a weapon of this category in cooperation with the French. However, even this cooperation did not have a favorable conclusion for the Germans. The fruit only brought a connection with the Swedes, at the end of which a missile with a flat runway TAURUS KEPD 350 was created.
