Abstract : This report presents results of a study conducted to determine the arming time that should be recommended for each combination of aircraft type, release condition, bomb type, and post-release maneuver, as well as a discussion of the methods used to arrive at the recommended arming times. The aircraft types considered were A-4, A-6, A-7, and F-4. The release conditions considered were level attitude with no post-release maneuver, and dives followed by application of a 4G recovery force within two seconds after release of the last bomb. The tabulations presented do not replace the tactical manual recommendations, but rather present supplementary information for those interested. (Author)
