Abstract:

An aerodynamic analysis has been conducted for carriage of two designs of GBU-15 CWWs on the F-4 aircraft. The analysis was to determine the effects of the GBU-15 Cruciform Wing Weapon CWW canard sizing on the drag and longitudinal stability of the F-4 aircraft. The GBU-15 CWW canard redesign from a 46-inch span to a 29-inch span canard equated to a Drag Index reduction, per GBU-15 CWW, of 2.6. The Stability Index Number, per GBU-15 CWW, was reduced by approximately 50 percent. Author
