Welcome to the SCALE (AS-37) Martel Gallery on TRF.
This gallery showcases the (AS-37) Martel and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:
TLP: Martel AS.37: K053
as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!
The AS 37 is the product of a collaboration between the British firm of Hawker-Siddely, and Matra in France. The AS.37, employed by both the British and the French, uses a movable receiver aerial to lock onto the hostile radar emission and send guidance signals to the small set of control fins behind the wings. Length of the AS.37 version Martel is reported at 412 centimeters, and it weighs 1213 lbs. at launch. Speed is high subsonic, although it is claimed to break the sound barrier in a steep attack. The updated version of the AS-37, known as the Armat, was introduced in 1984 using the same airframe but with an updated radar seeker. The somewhat shorter, television-guided AJ.168 version of the Martel is used only by the British. The firms Electronique Marcel Dassault (France) and Marconi (UK) took part in developing the missile. The former created the guidance system for the AS- 37 version and the latter the electronics for the AJ-168 version.

MARTEL AS.37 ANTI-RADAR MISSILE (UK/France)
This unusual looking missile is the result of a collaboration between the British firm of Hawker-Siddely, and Matra in France. This version, the AS.37, is employed by both the British and the French, and uses a movable receiver aerial to lock onto the hostile radar emission and send guidance signals to the small set of control fins behind the wings. The somewhat shorter, television-guided AJ.168 version of the Martel is used only by the British. Length of the AS.37 version Martel is reported at 412 centimeters, and it weighs 1213 lbs. at launch. Speed is high subsonic, although it is claimed to break the sound barrier in a steep attack.
You'd think a rocket with fins placed like this would be all over the sky, wouldn't you? So did we, but when we tried it out, Martel turned out to be surprisingly easy to stabilize with only a minimum amount of nose weight (supplied in the kit). So here it is, in 1/6 scale, ready to perform its "D" or "E" powered radar-seeking missions flawlessly, flight after flight. The sleek tail cone is supported internally by an extra-heavy-duty core tube to absorb landing shocks and minimize damage, and, as always, we supply both a barrel swivel and quick-change snap swivel for the chute, to help keep your shroud lines from tangling. Uses any standard launcher with a 3/16" launch rod. A beautiful addition to your International Collection! (TLP 2013 Web Ad)
