Abstract : The document describes the development and the results of a study of the feasibility of designing a standard tactical missile launcher which is capable of carrying and launching hypothetical stores, weighing form 500 to 3,000 pounds, from the F100, F101, F104, and F105 aircraft. Store trajectories and flight clearances were investigated in a computer program. The results of the computer runs are analyzed and discussed. Structural and mechanical criteria have been established. (Author)
