    US underwater rocket

    Hi everybody,

    I was unsure where to post this request, green light in order to move the thread to the proper section.

    I'm looking for informations about an underwater rocket for special purposes developed in the States during the '50s, the project name should be "Rocket 111" or "X-111" or "X-11" but might as well be classified under different names.
    The rocket was a propulsion mean for miniature torpedoes, it was designed under a MWDP (Mutual Weapons Developement Program) between the US and Italy, cancelled during 1957 due to its excessive ballistic dispersion (400/500yd @ 90/100kn).

    Does anyone has details about this? Thanks in advance.

    I will probably ask a dumb question, but did you search dtic.mil ?

    If not google it like that :
    antisubmarine rocket site:dtic.mil
    rocket underwater site:dtic.mil

    cheers,

    S.
