This report presents results of an investigation of effects of externally mounted missile models on the aerodynamic characteristics of a triangular wing of aspect ratio 3 at both subsonic and supersonic Mach numbers. The lift, drag, and pitching moment of the wing-fuselage model fitted with the missile models are presented for Mach numbers of 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.4, and 1.7 at a Reynolds number of 4.8 million. Similar data are presented for the basic wing.
