  • Early Designations


    So many missiles, so little time.
    Vehicles with Mission Design Series (MDS) designators
    achieved some threshold of operational capability.
    Many drone aircraft systems/concepts were
    not given MDS designators because development efforts
    were not initiated, were quite limited, were
    cancelled before significant progress was achieved,
    are now seriously lagging, or are not yet sufficiently
    documented. However, some of these systems are
    discussed briefly.
