A missile includes one or more arrays of barrel assemblies that are displaced from the centre of gravity of missile. Each barrel assembly includes a plurality of projectiles axially disposed within a barrel, and each projectile is associated with a discrete propellant charge for propelling the projectile sequentially from the barrel. Each array of barrel assemblies is capable of selectively firing the projectiles from selected barrels, whereby the missile is accelerated by the reactionary force generated by said firing of projectiles and the missile is d...
1. A missile having a directional control system including an array of barrel assemblies from which projectiles are selectively fired, each barrel assembly having a plurality of projectiles axially disposed within a barrel and associated with respective propellant charges for propelling said projectiles sequentially from the barrel, wherein at least some of the barrels in the array of barrel assemblies are oriented to provide the respective projectiles with a component of motion along the longitudinal axis of the missile.2. A missile as in claim 1 wherei...
