    It looks like a Finland LP 1 glide bomb.

    rather odd........I cant help.

    they must be experimenting with different winged designs. they seem to be rather proud after completing them.

    I also wondered about that,because you can see the Army cleared the one letter. must not have been worried about any classified technology being released. obviously they are a special application for a mission or perhaps on to be tested

    The photos are as described the GT-1 (glide torpedo). These had radio controlled rudders. The wooden attachments broke loose when it hit the water. These were supposedly used on enemy convoys. Erich's photo is the GB1-15 (glide bomb). These had radio controlled elevators and rudders. There were fifteen types of the GB and they were used for sub pens, bridges, and any other tight targets. I have not been able to find very much info out there on what type of radio system or frequency they used. Very cool photos Gary.
