Default Copperhead B/G

Hello All,

The M712 Copperhead guided projectile (which is fired from 155 mm howitzers and tank guns, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M712_Copperhead and http://www.google.com/search?ei=i8G...1.0.RXcUZk0ch4U ) has a glide mode as well as a ballistic mode; the glide mode is used when the cloud ceiling and/or visibility is too low to permit use of the ballistic mode. This would make the Copperhead a unique scale boost-glider subject. If the model was large and light enough, it should—like the Jetex-powered profile Sidewinder and Sparrow missile “stick fuselage” models—glide fairly well.
