Introduction

The Turramurra– nickname ‘Big T’ – was an airborne towed target developed and manufactured by the Weapons Research Establishment (now DST) at Edinburgh, South Australia. It was designed to be used in conjunction with either a Meteor aircraft or a Jindivik remotely piloted drone, and was operated during missile trials at Woomera between 1957 and 1967.
