Abstract : A compatibility test was conducted of the A/A37U15 tow subsystem with the F-84 aircraft. This subsystem was designed to provide the Tactical Air Command with a transonic tow target capability for gunnery training for the F-104, F-100C/D, F-86H and F-84F aircraft. Missions were conducted to test the tow s bsystem for ground and airborne compatibility with the F-84F aircraft. The operation of the tow subsystem during launch and tow and performance capabilities while flying typical mission profiles were evaluated. It was concluded from the test that the tow subsystem can be satisfactorily used in normal towing operations with the F-84F aircraft. (Author)
