Description: Four 0.01643-scale equivalent-body-of-revolution models, designed to aid in the evaluation of the relative merits of various degrees of redesign of the existing (1955) Convair F-102 airplane, were launched from the helium gun at Wallops Island, Va., to determine their zero-lift drag at Mach numbers from 0.8 to 1.3. The data are presented with only sufficient analysis to validate their general subsonic level. Estimated values of the friction drag are presented at all Mach numbers to allow a comparison of the pressure drag values alone.
