1..Paper Telescopes - Nice paper models of the reflecting and refracting telescopes.
2..MIM 104A patriot Missile - This was the initial "Standard" missile (still known as "Standard" today). In Patriot's early days, the system was used exclusively as an anti-aircraft weapon, with no capability against ballistic missiles. This was remedied during the late 1980s when Patriot received its first major system overhaul with the introduction of the Patriot Advanced Capability missile and concurrent system upgrades.
3..MIM 104C patriot Missile (PAC 2) - PAC-2 was first tested in 1987 and reached Army units in 1990, just in time for deployment to the Middle East for the Persian Gulf War. It was there that Patriot was first regarded as a successful ABM system and proof that ballistic missile defense was indeed possible. The complete study on its effectiveness remains classified.
4..MIM 104F patriot Missile (PAC 3) - The PAC-3 upgrade is a significant upgrade to nearly every aspect of the system. It took place in three stages deployed in 1995, 1996 and 2000, and units were designated Configuration 1, 2, or 3. The PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) interceptor increases altitude and range through a more powerful dual-pulse motor for added thrust, larger fins that collapse inside current launchers, and other structural modifications for more agility. The U.S. Army accepted the first PAC-3 MSE interceptors on 6 October 2015. Initial Operational Capability (IOC) for the PAC-3 MSE interceptor was declared in August 2016.
5..Honest John M-31 Missile - The MGR-1 Honest John rocket was the first nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile in the United States arsenal. Designated Artillery Rocket XM31, the first such rocket was tested 29 June 1951 and the first production rounds were delivered in January 1953. The designator was changed to M31 in September 1953. The first Army units received their rockets by year's end and Honest John battalions were deployed in Europe in early 1954. Alternatively, the rocket was designed to be capable of carrying an ordinary high-explosive warhead weighing 680 kilograms (1,500 lb), even though that was not the primary purpose for which it was originally envisioned.

6..Honest John M-50 Missile - Upgraded Honest John, M-50, was undertaken to improve accuracy and extend range. The size of the fins was greatly reduced to eliminate "weathercocking" (the tendency of crosswinds to turn a rocket to face into the wind).
7..Nike Hercules missiles - The Nike Hercules (MIM-14) was a surface-to-air missile (SAM) used by U.S. and NATO armed forces for medium- and high-altitude long-range air defense. It was normally armed with the a nuclear warhead, but could also be fitted with a conventional warhead for export use. Hercules was developed as the successor to the earlier MIM-3 Nike Ajax,and at its peak it was deployed at over 130 bases in the US alone. Hercules remained the US' primary heavy SAM until it began to be replaced by the higher performance and more mobile MIM-104 Patriot in the 1980s. The last Hercules missile was launched in the Sardinian range of Capo San Lorenzo in Italy on November 24, 2006.
NOTE: There are 5 variations of the Nike Hercules models available for purchase at ecardmodels.com. The U.S. in white or Green, as deployed in the Netherlands, Germany and Taiwan.
8..Aster 15 and 16 missiles - The cornerstone of Europe's naval and land-based air defence programmes.The Aster missile family comprises Aster 15 for short to medium range and Aster 30 for short to long range. Aster missiles are in service on the latest vessels brought into service by three of Europe's major navies: Italy, France and the United Kingdom. Aster missile naval air defence systems are also in service with several other navies around the world.
NOTE: Both models as available for purchase at ecardmodels.com.
