Abstract : The patent relates to a jet tab steerable missile having a plurality of tab-shaped elements rotatably mounted on the rear portion of the missile adjacent the nozzle. The tab-shaped elements are capable of 360 degrees rotary movement from a thrust vector control position into the air stream. In so doing the tab-shaped elements will provide post burn out side force generation, and therefore, extend range control of the missile.
