Abstract:

The SS-11 ATGM system was installed on a HU-1 helicopter. Ballast was required in the installation. There is reason to believe, however, that ballast will not be required in production installations. Items of the helicopter- mounted SS-11 ATGM system which are identical with those of the ground systems are not described in detail in this report. Six missile launchers three on each side, mounted on horizontal booms were installed on the helicopter. The launchers can be jettisoned from the helicopter individually or simultaneously in an emergency. The launcher booms can be readily removed or folded vertically to the stowed position. The gunners controls were installed on the copilotss side of the cockpit without removing the flight controls. The control box was mounted on the pedestal between the pilots and copilots seats in a position convenient to the gunner.
