"Introducing Miss Hostile Mortar Locating Equipment – Miss KQP-1 to her friends – she aims to please!"

by Ms Sarah Anderson

The photo was found tucked away in a folder describing the U.S. Army-Marine Corps Steering Group requirements for hostile mortar locating equipment for use in South Vietnam.

Miss Hostile Mortar

According to the report, during World War II and Korea “hostile mortars caused a greater percentage of casualties that any other weapon employed by the enemy.”  This system would target the hostile mortars before or shortly after they began firing.  Unfortunately, after field testing in Vietnam the system proved unsatisfactory.  Despite Miss KQP-1’s best efforts, the project was recommended for termination in December of 1966.”

The folder makes no mention of the woman.  Anyone recognize this bombshell beauty?
