The report shows the derivation of pitching motion equations for homing glide bombs, describes and electromechanical model, indicates a method of adjusting constants of model, and elaborates on the application of the results obtained to other types of bombs called SWOD Mark 7 and Mark 9 gliders. A servo-control unit and a pitch gyro are described, and it is shown how the error in pitch is considerably reduced by this arrangement.
