There's got to be a way to put a weapon on an X-15  ;D

Let's not forget the Russian Bereznyak-Isayev BI-1:



I think I have a kit of that in the stash - just not sure where or kitted by whom.

I think everyone has that kit. I remember that it was one of the first widely available former Eastern European/Russian kits after the fall of the USSR. I even got one for free as "packing material"! It's not a great kit.

I'm not at all certian that the "aluminum condom" structure of the Atlas could take it.  I rather like the proposed x-15B that was to be launched by three Navaho boosters.
