Abstract : This paper describes an analytical method developed with the purpose to compare the kinematic and dynamic performance of a winged configuration with respect to a wingless configuration of a tactical anti-air missile. a reference mission of the missile is firstly defined and the analytical method is built-up through the introduction of suitable assumptions and simplifications. The method is then applied to an actual missile for which wind tunnel results are available in its winged and wingless configuration. (jes)
