    air defense missile system talos Ship aircraft missile system" Talos ", adopted by the U.S. Navy in 1956, intended for the armament of large ships of the fleet, mainly cruisers defense. It was the most difficult and expensive of all systems available on the U.S. arsenal at the time.

    Tests

    complex began in 1951 at the site White Sands. At the landfill was built testing facility number 35 belonging to the U.S. Navy. At the site were experimental launchers for testing naval anti-aircraft missiles. Among employees landfill complex number 35 was named USS Desert Ship.

    first ship armed SAM "Talos" was the cruiser "Galveston" (USS Galveston), from which in February 1959 launched the first SAM "Talos".

    O radar target tracking,

    O missile tracking radar,

    O semi-active radar seeker;

    paired launcher;

    anti-aircraft guided missile RIM-8 "Talos".

    SAMs RIM-8 "Talos" - a two-stage, supersonic, with a detachable body in flight accelerator. Housing start RDTT tandem arrangement separated after fuel burn. Marching PVZHRD multimode working kerosene feed to the combustion chamber via a turbo pump, driven by an incident airflow. Home and sustainer stages have stablizatory.

    missile can be fitted with conventional or nuclear warhead capacity of 2 kiloton W30 with proximity fuse.

    Plus Sizes SAM can use them only for cruisers and destroyers. On the cruiser displacement 15 tons can be located almost 100 missiles. Rockets are stored in the cellars of horizontal stabilizers and without starting the engine. From the cellar using the elevator, they are served in the post prelaunch.

    prepared to launch a rocket through the large windows in the aft wall of superstructure served on paired launcher rails which are given at zero elevation.

    whole process flow and loading is done automatically, with the supply system associated with the fire control system selects the desired SAM warhead (see photo).
