The first successful experiments with guided bombs were conducted during World War II when television-guided bombs, flare-sighted bombs and other steerable munitions, such as the 1000-lb-class (450 kg) AZON bomb, were developed. The Germans developed several types of steerable munitions, such as the 1,400-kg (3,100 lb) Fritz X, the closest Axis equivalent of the AZON device.
