The over-all performance characteristics of a complete canard-type missile configuration with wing-mounted nacelle engines were investigated in the Lewis 8- by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel at Mach numbers of 1.5, 1.8, and 2.0. The investigation covered model angles of attack from 0 to 10 degrees, control-surface-deflection angles from -6 to 10 degrees, and a range of engine mass-flow ratios at a Reynolds number of approximately 8.0 X 10(exp 6) based on wing mean aerodynamic chord.
