The Navaho G-38 was the ultimate development of the A-9/A-10 concept. At the time the Navaho program was cancelled (13 July 1957) the missiles were in fabrication with first flight test planned by the end of 1958. The engines developed for the G-38 booster were used with minor modification for all of the first generation of American orbital rockets - the Jupiter, Thor, Atlas, Titan 1, and Saturn I. They continue to use to this day in the Atlas II and Delta 3.
