Abstract : The conventional MHU-20/C clip-in was extensively modified to carry four B28 stores in an extreme forward location in the bomb bay of the B-52 aircraft. After successful completion of testing the modification at this facility early in 1970, the clip-in was designated PWU-6/C. The modification still, however, had the drawback that the cables to the weapons and to the coded switch system were accessible to potential saboteurs. An armor cover for the cable system was devised by the Air Force Weapons Laboratory to prevent unauthorized access to the cables and coded switch. Some minor structural modifications had to be effected to accommodate the cover. Static and drop testing was accomplished to determine whether or not the newly designated PWU-6A/C had been structurally degraded by the modification.
