When you need to protect your supersonic nuclear bombers from Godless Commie Hordes, use UFOs.
I'm trying to imagine these things under test using the primitive control systems of the 1960s. After launch they'd probably speed off in random directions- manoeuverabilty is a desirable trait in a missile, but trying to control such a flamboyantly aerobatic missile using 1960's tech would be a major headache.

Mind you this would be relatively easy today - there are all sorts of hobbyist drones that can do remarkable things nowadays.
