The aerodynamic characteristics of nine configurations of supersonic continuous deflectable nose guided missiles have been investigated. Then the optimized geometry is achieved based on the maneuverability from aerodynamic and flight dynamic point of view. The studied configurations consists of a spherical nose tip, a tangent ogive, one set of stabilizing tail fins and a cylindrical body that its mid-section is flexible to form an arc of a circle. So the cylindrical body consists of a fix part in vicinity of nose, middle flexible part and main body with stabilizers. The effects of fix length and flexible length parameters on the aerodynamic and flight dynamics of guided missile have been studied. A code has been developed to solve full Navier-Stokes equations using finite volume and modified Baldwin-Lomax turbulence model. Multi-block technique is also used to solve main body and fin parts flow field. Further, a 3 degree of freedom code has been developed to compare planar flight dynamic of missiles. It is found that missiles with bigger lengths for fix and flexible parts show more aerodynamic maneuverability, but drag force grows concurrently. Flight dynamic analysis shows that drag effect is negligible and aerodynamic maneuverability analysis is compatible with flight maneuverability.
