Minuteman II Missile ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
The Minuteman was Americas Third Operational ICBM System. During the Cuban Missile Crisis it was America's "Ace In The Hole". It has been operational at U.S. bases since 1962 reaching a peak of 1,000 missiles. The Minuteman II program was economically crucial to the development of integrated circuits. It was the first mass-produced system to use a computer constructed from integrated circuits, and used most of the production of such circuits from 1962 through 1967. The other major customer of these circuits was the Apollo Guidance Computer, which had similar weight and ruggedness constraints. The Orbiter version keeps up with the historical aspect of this horrible weapon. This add-on is created for historical purposes only, and we do not condone using Orbiter to simulate nuclear war. No active Minuteman II missiles currently exist today. The only way to see one now is at a museum or on display at various Air Force bases world wide. This add-on simulates the flight plan and package delivery of a real Minuteman II missile. The warhead included in this add-on is from the Trinity package created by Dave Rowbothham. The warhead activates at about 4 minutes to impact. It arms at 2000 feet and detonation occurs at 1800 feet.
