Presents zero-lift drag data of an NACA RM-10 slender body of revolution with and without stabilizing fins attached. The results from several wind tunnels and in flight are compared. The results cover a Reynolds number range from about 1 time 10 to the 6th power to 40 times10 to the 6th power for the flight models. The Mach numbers covered include 1.5 to 2.4 in the wind tunnels and 0.85 to 2.5 in flight.
