Mgm-157 Efogm

YMGM-157B

The Raytheon MGM-157 EFOGM (Enhanced Fiber Optic Guided Missile), was a long range enhanced fibre optic guided missile developed for the U.S. Army during the 1980s and 1990s to test the use of fibre optics in missiles.[1][2] The missile was launched vertically and manually controlled by an operator on the ground by use of a television camera mounted on the nose.[3] The signals from the camera were carried via a thin wire that unspooled the further up the missile reached. The weapon was primarily designed for anti-tank use, or against low flying helicopters.[4][5]
