Abstract:

The 2.75 Inch Rocket System is a multi-service system consisting of launchers, warheads, and rocket motors. The air vehicle is a warhead and rocket motor combination that flies a free flight ballistic trajectory to the target. The launch platform consists of both rotary and fixed wing aircraft. The 2.75-inch system is used in large numbers for prosecuting soft and lightly armored targets and additionally provides unique battlefield illumination, target marking, and smoke screening capabilities. The small size of the rocket allows the platform to carry a large number of rockets and the small size of the warhead is appropriate for many targets where low collateral damage is desired.
