Abstract:

Wind tunnel tests were conducted in the Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel 4T to investigate the separation characteristics of the Improved MK-82LGB and MK- 84LGB from the wing pylons and racks of the A-7D aircraft. Carriage loads data were also acquired on the MK-82LGB and the MK-84EOGB. Trajectory data were obtained at Mach numbers from 0.78 to 0.95 at a simulated altitude of 7000 ft. Simulated dive angles were 0 and 70 deg during this phase of the test. With one exception, all stores separated without store-to-aircraft contact. Store-to- store contact occurred when the MK-82LGB was launched from a fully loaded TER. Carriage loads data were taken over a Mach number range from 0.70 to 1.05 at angles of attack from -2 to 12 deg and yaw angles from -2 to 2 deg.
