This missile, like the Bullpup AGM-12C on the next page, was part of a series of missiles designed to soften up
hardened ground emplacements, bunkers, and underground fortifications prior to sending in ground troops. First
used by the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, it was later adopted by the Royal Navy as standard strike
armament on the Buccaneer aircraft. The AGM-12B used high explosives, although a similar, later version, the
AGM-12D, had nuclear capabilities. Used by the U.K., Denmark, Norway and Turkey, this is a prime candidate for
the International Collection.
