Rascal being carried by a DB-47 carrier aircraft. After launch, the missile continued toward its predetermined target controlled by a self-contained guidance system. The Rascal's course could also be changed by its carrier aircraft. The Rascal was an air-to-surface, supersonic guided missile tested in the 1950s. It was a “stand-off” nuclear weapon to be launched from Strategic Air Command (SAC) bombers up to 100 miles away from the target.
