Abstract : The drag, spin histories, and some yaw properties of the spike nosed 90-mm T300E53 and 90-mm T316E6 shell are presented. These data were obtained from Transonic Range firings. The dual flow phenomenon which was observed on shadowgraphs of the T300E53 in free flight is also briefly discussed. (Author)
