Tests of an attack-type airplane in the Ames 40- by 80-foot wind tunnel to improve the high-speed maneuvering control-force characteristics
Description: Report discussing testing on a twin-engine airplane to determine which modifications would make it suitable for ground-support attack operations. Some of the suggested modifications include replacing fabric-covered elevators with metal-covered elevators with a balance tab, replacing fabric-covered ailerons with metal-covered ailerons with a balance tab, sealing the airplane, fairing the nose guns, removing the lower-periscope deflector, and fairing the bomb racks. The results of other types of configurations are included in the report.
