Sectioning by missile type, region (Euro)[edit]

This page probably wants to be split up into sections for each type of missile, for example AAM, SAM, anti-ship, anti-tank, strategic surface-to-surface. Also, European missiles are general international projects these days, not from one European country, so perhaps there should be a "European" category in the list-by-nation section at the bottom. -- Cabalamat 27 Aug 2003

CSS-2, Condor, national origins[edit]

Doesn't the CSS-2 missile come from the PRC? And doesn't the Condor missile come from the US? -- Victor 00:45 CDT 05-02-2004

Sectioning by region/country vs alphasort[edit]

Hi, I just noticed that this article's sectioning has been radically changed, from a mostly region/country based scheme to a purely alphabetic order. I'm sure I'd have found out about this earlier if the "perpetrator" :-) had properly reported the changes in his edit summaries, but I won't pursue that any further than just my mention of it here.

However, I think the former section scheme had some advantages, but so does the new one (alphasorted). I thus suggest that we use both; either by including both types of list in this one article, or by splitting the article into two, one for each sec'n scheme (regional as well as alphabetic). For an example of the former, regional, scheme, see this version, for instance. --Wernher 02:10, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

OK, fixed now by having two separate lists. Thanks. --Wernher 14:38, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

Alphasort by 'calling name' as well as model name/code[edit]

When sorting + sectioning alphabetically, I think we should use the 'calling name' (e.g. Penguin) as well as the model code (e.g. AGM-119), because otherwise we just end up with a similar sorting order as the U.D.S. for many of the U.S. missiles, and NATO reporting codes for many USSR/Russian ones. If no one beats me to it, or objects on well-founded rational grounds, I guess I'll just do it myself. --Wernher 14:38, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

I did this for Nike, because all the sub-types link to Project_Nike anyway. I doubt I will get to doing it for the rest though. Paulc206 04:27, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

How about using a sortable table and letting the user decide how to view the list? That way we could keep the model codes, common name, country(area) of origin, and missile type as options for sorting "on the fly" as it were... ComputerGeezer (talk) 13:00, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Here's what I had in mind:
Common Name Model Code Country (area) of origin Missile type NATO Code
V-2 Rocket A-4 Germany Ballistic missile
Kaliningrad K-5 K-5 Soviet Union Air-to-air missile AA-1 Alkali
Vympel K-13 K-13 Soviet Union Air-to-air missile AA-2 Atoll
Kaliningrad K-8 K-8 Soviet Union Air-to-air missile AA-3 Anab
Raduga K-9 K-9 Soviet Union Air-to-air missile A-4 Awl
Mitsubishi AAM-3 AAM-3 Japan Air-to-air missile
Hound Dog AGM-28 Hound Dog United States Cruise missile

Can anyone think of other columns we might want to add?ComputerGeezer (talk) 17:35, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Once you're done, we should merge the two articles. --Ŧħę௹ɛя㎥ 02:55, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
with this one too... List of antiaircraft weapons --Ŧħę௹ɛя㎥ 20:21, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I have suspended my work on the replacement table until this issue gets cleared up. The first response appears to indicate that every item in any list must have its own in-line citation, so this entire list will have to be deleted (as will List of missiles by country). ComputerGeezer (talk) 02:51, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

The issue has been resolved and I have deleted my work on a replacement table. The List of missiles I envisioned could not conform to the verifiability policy. (The current list also does not conform to the verifiability policy and should be deleted.) ComputerGeezer (talk) 20:59, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

i think a sortable table is essential for rockets and missiles, with range, weight etc... the long lists by country or alphabetically are cumbersome to use. i have started making one, please add to it... i will try to extend it. all the data so far are from the named wikipedia article, anything other i will reference. most other weapons have this type of table or better. and they are not referenced when the info is from the [[]] wikipedia article, which should be referenced. it is understood that they are summaries... go ahead and add references if you like but i need this kind of table for my research anyway. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.9.94.225 (talk) 00:16, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

I think that this is an excellent idea, and apparently it's one that we've been kicking around since 2003 without actually completing. Since this list didn't end up getting deleted due to WP:V concerns, and there seem to be no other issues, I'll get started on it this week. I especially like the idea of it making the other list unnecessary. Heather (talk) 14:20, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Combine Missiles and Military Rocket Lists[edit]

I would like to combine a couple of lists relevant to this article, please see Lists of Rockets.Kees08 (talk) 04:35, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
