With limited equipment, Greenpeace aimed to show that a handful of activists could pinpoint this missile's flight path in a test corridor a hundred kilometres wide. The plan was to raise a 100 x 25 foot nylon fishing net, bearing the words "STOP NUCLEAR TESTING NOW" in two meter high letters held afloat by weather balloons. The net was positioned at the missile's maximum operational altitude of 100 meters.
The tactic was a success. The Cruise had been obliged to fly several hundred meters above the altitude for which it was designed, showing its control vulnerability.
