These particular missiles are from a decades-old series of cruise missiles. They're not even remotely comparable to Sunburns, and while the Sunburn can fly at about 10-15 feet with no problems, these missiles most certainly cannot.

The operational parameters of the Sunburn and its spawn, the Onyx, make these x-55(?)s look like beat up el-caminos. There was a very good post on this subject a week or two ago.

Familiarize yourself with the search system, it will reduce exponentially the number of replies like this one.

I am no expert on cruise missiles but i would say flying even at 10ft would be very risky all it takes is a downdraft or strong cross wind and the missile could hit the ground almost instantaneously.
