    Greetings Folks;




    ..... The Nike Ajax was the first ground to air guided missile that the United States
    Army put into production.
    The missile used a solid propellant booster, and a liquid propellant second stage
    contained within the missile body.

    The Douglas Nike Ajax was superseded by the Douglas Nike Hercules guided missile.
    Which had a larger warhead, ((Nuclear) on some missiles), and could reach an
    altitude of 150,000 + feet.
