The third in a series of scale-model wind tunnel tests to determine the effect of fuselage mounted stores on the drag of an attack aircraft is reported. This phase investigates stores mounted semi-submerged, tangent, and on short and long pylons on the fuselage of a low, 25 deg sweep wing. Additional configurations include stores carried on a fuselage mounted Multiple Ejection Rack MER as well as on the fuselage without wings. Also included in this report is the drag of partially loaded configurations. The angle of attack ranged from -2 deg to 4 deg and the Mach number from 0.60 to 0.90. Author
