Abstract:

A wind tunnel investigation was conducted to assess the effect of carriage of the GBU-15 cruciform wing and the GBU-15 planar wing stores on the longitudinal stability and drag characteristics of the F-4C aircraft. Data were obtained for 15 external store loading configurations for angles of attack ranging from -4 to 20 deg at 0-deg roll angle. All data were obtained at a constant stagnation pressure of 2,500 psfa for Mach numbers from 0.6 to 1.1.
