McDonnell Aircraft Corporation produced this cropped-delta-wing decoy that could be carried by Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bombers and released just prior to penetrating enemy airspace. During an actual bombing attack, it would produce a radar image identical to that of the B-52, fly at approximately the same speed and altitude, and execute roughly the same maneuvers. With decoys and actual B-52s penetrating an enemy's airspace, it would be very difficult for the enemy to distinguish one from the other on radar.
