Description: From Summary: "In connection with recent tests of a 1/4-scale model pursuit airplane in the NACA 8-foot high-speed tunnel, gun openings having low drag were developed for installation in the nose of the fuselage. The increase in the fuselage-drag coefficient for the final form of openings was 0.0132 at a Mach number of 0.69 and at an angle of attack of 0 degrees. The corresponding drag coefficient based on the wing area was about 0.0005. The critical speed of the airplane was not affected by the gun openings."
