Description

An inert U.S. GTR-18 "Smokey Sam" Surface-To-Air Missile Simulator.

The printed markings include:

"GTR-18A SMOKEY SAM ... CLASS B EXPLOSIVE" and "CHAR ON NOZZLE INDICATES INERT ROUND - NO HAZARD"

Measures approx. 40 cm long x 15 cm across the base.

The following details and the last photo are copied from the internet:

The GTR-18A, commonly known as the Smokey Sam, is a small unguided rocket developed by Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) in China Lake, California as a threat simulator for use during military exercises. Widely used in training, the Smokey Sam remains in operational service with the United States military.

The GTR-18 was conceived in the late 1970s by Robert A. McLellan, a Weapons Range Scientist working with Exercise Red Flag at Nellie Air Force Base. He first searched for a commercially available system that would perform as he envisioned. It quickly became apparent that no commercial product would perform adequately, so the development of the GTR-18 was undertaken by the Naval Weapons Center (NWC) during the early 1980s, with the intent of developing Mr. McLellan's idea of a simple and inexpensive rocket for visually simulating the launch of surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) during training exercises.

Constructed from phenolic paper and styrofoam, the Smokey Sam is designed for minimal cost and, in the event of accidentally striking low-flying aircraft, to cause minimal damage."

Tracked, international shipping at cost and at buyer's risk.

Can also deliver free of charge to the Military Odyssey show, at the end of August.
