This test was conducted to determine which missile-stores combinations could be carried on the same inboard pylon of the F-4 aircraft. The selected munitions for which a fit test was performed included the MK 82 low drag general purpose bomb, MK 82 Snakeye, CBU-67BB, MK 82 laser guided bomb, MK 84 laser guided bomb, MK 84 electro-optical guided bomb, M118 laser guided bomb, and the M118 electro-optical guided bomb. Of these munitions only the MK 82 low drag general purpose bomb, the MK 82 Snakeye, and the CBU-67BB fit when they were loaded on an inboard TER station and an AIM-4D was mounted on the inboard side of the pylon. For these three munitions, store separation testing was also accomplished the CBU-67BB was replaced by the CBU-67HB for separation testing. The presence of an AIM-4D on the pylon tended to increase nose-down pitch of these munitions when compared to releases of the munitions without an AIM-4D mounted on the pylon.
