The Corporal was the first guided missile put into use by the U. S.
Army. Originally designed as a test vehicle to study the problems
associated with long range rockets, the Corporal missile was later
turned into a tactical battlefield missile capable of carrying either a
conventional or nuclear warhead. The first test vehicle was flown in
1947. Full production vehicles made their appearance in the summer of
1952. The basic design saw some modifications until The Corporal was
retired in 1964. This missile was propelled by a liquid fuel engine and
was guided by radio control.
