Abstract : A compatibility test was conducted of the A/A 37U-15 tow subsystem with the F-100D aircraft. This subsystem was designed to provide the Tactical Air Command with a transonic tow target capability for gunnery training for the F-104C, F-100C/D, F86H, and F-84F aircraft. Missions were conducted to test the tow subsystem for ground and airborne compatibility with the F-100D aircraft. The operation of the tow subsystem during launch and tow and performance capabilities hile flying typical mission profiles were evaluated. The THU-4/E rewind stand was also evaluated for use as ground support equipment. (Author)
