D) Only 1
Correct Answer: C
Solution :[c] A cruise missile is a guided missile used against terrestrial targets, so called because the major portion of its flight path is conducted at cruise speed. The dynamics of cruise are a result of aerodynamic lift (force), and the equality of the thrust or propulsion forces against aerodynamic drag and as a result there is no acceleration. Modern cruise missiles are capable of travelling at supersonic or high subsonic speeds, are self- navigating, and are able to fly on a non-ballistic, extremely low-altitude trajectory.
