Abstract:

Wind tunnel tests were conducted to determine the static stability and control characteristics of the MK-84 Homing Optical Bombing System HOBOS at high angles of attack and the Modular Guided Glide Bomb MGGB at moderate angles of attack. The tests were conducted in the Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel 4T over a Mach number range from 0.50 to 1.05 and angles of attack from -2 to 35 deg with 0.25-scale models. Aerodynamic coefficients are presented to show longitudinal directional, and lateral static stability and axial-force characteristics, as well as control effectiveness. The effect on the aerodynamic coefficients and on the calibration data for a vane-type angle-of-attack indicator produced by adding a proximity fuse on the fuselage was also investigated.
