About the Fritz X – Precision Guided Bomb:

Intended for use against heavily armored ship or ground targets, the "Fritz X" (or PC 1400 X) was a 3,450-pound armor-piercing bomb fitted with a radio receiver and control surfaces in the tail. Aided by flares in the bomb's tail, the bombardier could follow its fall after release and could send radio signals, which moved the control surfaces and produced minor changes in the bomb's course. The most famous employment of "Fritz X" was the sinking of the Italian battleship Roma off Sardinia on Sept. 9, 1943, to prevent its surrender to the Allies.

Warhead: amatol explosive, armor-piercing
Operational range: 5 km (3.1 mi)
