I was having a discussion today with an Aeronautical Engineer. We were discussion, flight and planes, and stealth aircraft and the like, which he then proceeded to talk about smart missiles. He told me that he once worked with a guy who served with the RAF during the Gulf War, who told him this story. That during the fighting in Kuwait the RAF decided there was a particular APC in a built up area that needed to be destroyed. So the RAF fired some sort of "smart missile" to destroy this APC, this missle was so advanced that it flew down the middle of a street surrounded by buildings for some distance, at the end of the street it went straight through a car parked on the side of the road (through the rear window), not exploding and carried on the destroy the APC. And supposedly it was a common sight in the war to see "smart missiles" flying through the streets of the towns. I reckon its BS. I know they had many guided bombs and missiles then some of which would be capable of this story. But would I be right in thinking that missiles in a built up area would be inclined to come down on the target from a high angle, not fly through the streets to hit a target? Can anyone confirm this story or was he mistaken?
