Remote control system in missiles

I have another question. If you have a computer connected to a radar system or IR seeker in a missile, do I need to include a remote control system as well?
Or would I only include the remote control system if the missile was being operator guided?

(This is in reference to the T20 vehicle design sequence)
The control system in the T20 vehicle design sequence represents both an actual control system and all the other parts that make the contol system work, like a frame, steering systems, actuators, and so on. So while from a literal interpretation of the rule, no you shouldn't need a remote control system the implication of the control system is that it includes not just the radio, but all the other parts that make a vehicle more than a flying rock.

So yes, you need a remote control system for the missile, even if no one outside it is going to control it.
