Some neat videos of the Talos Missile and other Missiles....
Check out this great 8mm film of three Talos missile launches from USS Little Rock CLG 4 on 24 Aug 65 made by shipmate William L. Passauer FTM3 (now FTCS-Ret).  YouTube Link

And more great Navy missile information can be seen on Periscope Film's Film #2114 "MISSILES OF THE NAVY" (PART 2 of 2) on this YouTube video.
From the APL Vault is the video "Bumblebee" a film about the U.S. Navy's first supersonic surface-to-air missile program.  See it on YouTube.
From by WDTVLIVE42, a documentary film "Weapons That Work - 1967 United States Navy Missile Systems".  Also on YouTube.


In the 1950's and 60's Guided Missiles were a new weapon. Many manufactures touted their
"connections" to the  military's new weapons.  (Probably to add creditability to their products.)
