Abstract:

The principal approaches tested andor evaluated for emplacement of anchoring devices for rocket launcher and artillery carriages are outlined. Part 1 of this report deals largely with the Anchorage problem of rocket launchers in hard frozen ground. Part II covers the investigation of stability problems of firing platforms for conventional cannon-type artillery weapons in temperate climates. Critical anchoring problems in both arctic and temperate climates exist for both types of weapons.
