It was true, we had examples like that in our training manuals in the AF for
missile school, to show inovations and how the present day missiles have
moved up (back in 76) - even though we still had AIM-4F Falcons that were

climates, cracks in glass envelopes, etc.

The Japanese developed a remote guided bomb as well, but apparently it was
easily "jammed" by turning on en electric shaver.

Just a story I read from an old '50's book on guided missles and rockets.
