Description: The AGM-69 SRAM (Short Range Attack Missile) is a nuclear capable attack missile developed for the US Air Force strategic and tactical bombers. It is powered by a solid propellant rocket motor which allows for supersonic speed and ranges of more than 100 miles carrying a single 170-kiloton warhead. Due to the end of the Cold War and START treaties limiting the number of nukes owned by the United States and Russia the AGM-69s were dismantled.
In total, 1,500 SRAMs were produced by Boeing and delivered to the US Air Force from 1972 through 1975. The FB-111 Aardvark tactical bomber was entitled to carry as many as 6 SRAM missiles. The B-1B Lancer was able to carry up to 24 AGM-69A SRAMs and the B-52G/H Stratofortress up to 20 missiles. The primary mission for those bombers armed with SRAM was the suppression of sophisticated air defenses and the secondary mission bombing of strategic targets.
