Martin TM-76 Mace

The TM-76 Mace was a tactical surface-to-surface missile that replaced the Matador.  The Mace was launched by a 100,000 lb thrust solid fuel booster rocket, then flew to its target powered by an Allison J33 jet engine.  The first Mace flew in 1956.

The Mace was in service from 1959 until the early 1970s.  Some Maces were used as target drones.
