    Development of the AGM-45 Shrike traces back to 1963. During that time, experts at the Naval Weapons Center took a body of the AIM-7 Sparrow and a new seeker head to create a different anti-radiation missile. After a few re-fitting and perhaps sweat-breaking turns of a screw, the Shrike missile was created. It had a passive radar homing system that allows it to track the enemy�s radiation signals. Powered by a solid-fuel rocket, the AGM-45 stretches for 10 feet in length and 8 inches in diameter. The missile was officially introduced while being held by the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-6 Intruder. Its first combat was during the Vietnam War where it was used by the A-4. The following year, the US Air Force gave the F-105F and F-105G Wild Weasel SEAD aircraft the Shrike missile. Outside the US, the AGM Shrike was used by the Royal Air Force, though not as an official/regular weapon. The missile was only used during the 1982 Falklands War and the Operation Black Buck. The Israeli Air Force also used the AGM-45 extensively. This led to a new version of the missile that could be fired from the ground while being carried by an M4 Sherman chassis. This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
