ⓘ SSM-N-6 Rigel

In 1946 the US Navy sanctioned development of the Rigel missile as a sub-launched supersonic weapon to attack enemy shores, in parallel with development of the subsonic SSM-N-8 Regulus. The SSM-N-6 was to be launched by means of 4 rocket boosters and a catapult, with two ramjets for the cruise mode of the flight.

Several of Rigel product test was constructed to test the planned system ramjet engine for a missile Rigel. They had one RAMJET and one booster. Subsequently reduced the ftvs the Test aircraft was built with a configuration similar to a full-scale rockets, and the first launch of the FGTS occurred in may 1950. Unfortunately, plans to create a SSM-N-6 missiles were cancelled because of the failure of FTV flight test, and also due to the fact that Rigel is a problem for divers demanding more rail launchers on submarines than the SSM-N-8 Regulus.
