On display at Woomerra is this AVRO Blue Steel missile which was developed as Britain's strategic air launched nuclear warhead delivery system in the 1950s although it did not go into service until 1963. Carried by Vulcan and Victor bombers the missile was reputedly very unreliable and also had a very short range. Its role was replaced by submarine launched Polaris missiles from 1968.
