AMMS Alumni Website & AMMS Alumni Missileer Newsletter

This website is dedicated to the men and women assigned the Airborne Missile Maintenance Squadron in the Strategic Air Command.  They maintained the GAM-77/AGM-28 Hound Dog Missiles, GAM-72/ADM-20 Quail Missiles, and AQM-34 Firebee Missiles used to protect our nation during the Cold War.  I would like to thank everyone that has contributed photographs, materials and money toward maintenance of this website. 

Some of the troops misinterpreted my comments in the last newsletter and thought that I would be shutting down the AMMS Alumni website and newsletter if I close my website design business later this year. I want to assure all of you that I will keep the website and newsletter going as long as I am physically and financially able.

Some of you also ask me how much it costs to produce the website and newsletter. Here is a breakdown of those annual costs: Domain Registration: $9.99, Domain Hosting: $132.84, Email: 23.16, and Newsletter $199.00. Total $364.99.

Tom Dillion has passed the hat at the AMMS Alumni reunions and collected money to help defray the cost of keeping the website operating. That plus the dollar commission I collect on the sale of replica squadron patches and other products has generally covered my costs for maintaining the website and newsletter.

Some of the troops that don't attend the reunions have written to me offering to donate money toward the maintenance of the AMMS Alumni website and monthly newsletter. Therefore, I have installed a link on the home page that will permit troops to make a donation using PayPal. Any monies collected will be used to extend the domain registration and hosting of the website into the future. That way if something were to happen to me the website would continue to exist until the money ran out.


 Thank You!

Ronald Sortor, Webmaster

Hound Dogs Are Going To War Again

The Hound Dog Missile is now option for Microsoft Flight Simulator.  Peter Lane, the designer of the Hound Dog Missile for the Captain Sim add on 'Weapons for FSX' contacted me earlier this month and requested my assistance with the design.  I provided him with some three dimensional draws and photograph of the missile to assist him in preparing the CAD design for the missile. He provided me with seven preliminary CAD drawings of the missile.  I have included them in a photo gallery above.  As you can see Peter did a great job of the design. Here is the software you will need to play with your Hound Dog Missiles.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X – Prices range for $17.49 to $29.95 online depending on the version.  A FREE Trial version is available from Microsoft -

The following add on software must be purchased from Captain Sim:

B-52 Driver - The price is $30.70 at the current Euro – Dollar exchange rate.

Weapon for FSX -  The price is $18.41 at the current Euro – Dollar exchange rate.

Once you purchase the above products, you use your purchase code to log into the 'Free Liveries' section. In there you can then download Peter’s Hound Dog missile, as well as other missiles. In the B-52 section there are several aircraft repaints of lots of B52 squadrons/units and so you may well find your old unit paint job.  If not just ask on the forum and somebody will do it for you I am sure as they are a very friendly and helpful group always wanting to show off their talents.

I have ordered all of the software myself but haven’t had an opportunity to test it yet because I am still waiting for the Microsoft Flight Simulator X software to arrive.
