guided weapon, you should refer to the Walleye I Guided
Weapon, NAVAIR 01-15MGA-1.
WALLEYE I ERDL. The Walleye I extended
range data link (ERDL) guided weapon consists of the
same basic items as the Walleye I. These weapons are
designed to be used in conjunction with the
AN/AWW-13 data pod. They permit target information
to be transmitted between the weapon and data pod
before and after release of the weapon.
WALLEYE II. The Mk 5 tactical Walleye II
guided weapon consists of a guidance section, a fairing
assembly, a warhead section (including the fuze and
fuze booster), a control section, four wings, four fin
adapters, and four fins. The weapon has provisions for
30-inch suspension only, and is in the 2,000-pound class
weapon category. The Walleye II (series) weapons are
essentially the same as the Walleye I weapons except
they are physically larger in size and have improved
electronics. Functional operation of the weapon and
delivery tactics are basically the same as Walleye I.
For further information concerning the Walleye II
(series) weapons, you should refer to the Guided
Weapon (Walleye II), NAVAIR 01-15MGB-2.2.
WALLEYE II ERDL. The Walleye II extended
range data link (ERDL) guided weapon Mk 23 Mods 0,
1, and 2 (frequency channels A, C, and E) consists of
the same basic items as the Walleye II Mk 5 weapons.
However, these assemblies include added data link
functions and extended range capability. The addition
of the larger wings enables the weapon to be launched
with longer slant ranges to a target complex. The
addition of the data-link pod (Guided Weapon
Control-Monitor Set AN/AWW-9/13) and a joystick
controller (guided weapon control group
OK-293/AWW) on the aircraft allow the pilot to
remotely steer the weapon to a specific target within the
complex with pinpoint accuracy.
The Guided Weapon Control-Monitor Set
AN/AWW-9/13, data-link pod (fig. 3-17), is the
communications link between the pilot and the weapon.
The pod is suspended from a standard Walleye-
configured bomb rack.
It can be jettisoned in an
emergency. The pod contains the necessary electronics
to allow the pilot to receive the transmitted video from
the weapon and to transmit the command signals to the
weapon. In addition, the pod contains a video tape
recorder (VTR) that records the video transmitted by the
weapon all the way to impact on the target. This allows
low-cost weapon performance monitoring, which can
be played back for mission evaluation or for training
The weapon system may be used in one- or
two-aircraft operations. In a single aircraft operation,
the aircraft carries both the weapon and the pod, and the
aircraft performs both launch and control functions. In
the two-aircraft operation, one aircraft carries the
weapon and a second aircraft carries the pod. In this
operation, both the launch aircraft and the pod aircraft
receive a video picture of the target area from the
weapon. After weapon launch, the pod aircraft monitors
the flight of the weapon and can update the weapon aim
point all the way to impact.
Tactically, the two-aircraft operation dominates
because of the limited number of available pods. For
example, a one-pod configured aircraft monitors the

The Phoenix missile use active, semiactive, and passive homing.
Six Phoenix missiles can be launched from a single aircraft.
The Phoenix missile consists of the guidance, armament, propulsion, and control
The Maverick missile is used against fortified ground installations, armored
vehicles, and surface combatants.
The Maverick missile has automatic terminal homing on laser energy reflected
from the target, which has been illuminated by a laser designator.
The three basic modes of HARM missile operation are self-protect, target of
