Missile Design

BACK

Moving on to the material breakdown and sections of a missile. The first is the body; this material is majority section of the missile. For the best results you will need a material that is low in density, high in hardness and malleable. The nose section, which will house the warhead, requires a material that is easily compressed but very hard. Next the flaps, this material is important since the flaps help control the maneuver of the missile. A material that dense and not effected by heat is recommended.

A good fuel material is essential since it helps determine the range of the missile. You will find that a material that is dense, highly chemically reactive and with a high boiling point are encouraged. Finally the payload, this material is what your warhead will be made of. The best choice of material is dependent on what type of missile you are making. Chemical warheads require materials that are very chemically reactive. However, explosive warheads require materials that are highly combustive.
