A brief explanation of the reactive engine and the rocket engine is followed by information relative to the USSR categories of rocket weapons, which are grouped into ground missiles and aircraft missiles. Ground missiles are divided into ballistic missiles and winged missiles. The ballistic types are tactical short range, long range, and ICBM. The winged missiles for use against aerial targets are called antiaircraft guided missiles, and those for use against ground targets are the nonreturnable flying bomb and the pilotless interceptor aircraft which releases its rockets and return. This latter type can have the same range as long range ballistic rockets. The aircraft missiles are divided into rocket- or jet-propelled flying bombs, aerialcombat missiles, aircraft torpedoes, and guided bombs.
