English term or phrase: ground-hugging missile
"And a ground-hugging missile would be harder to track and intercept than a ballistic missile"

Ci sono molte occorrenze in rete ma non riesco a capire se significa che il missile vola seguendo la conformazione del terreno o se si blocca su un bersaglio al suolo, o se addirittura tertium datur...

Grazie

Explanation:
