LAU-93/A GUIDED MISSILE
The LAU-93/A guided missile launcher (fig. 3-27)
carries and launches the AIM-54 Phoenix missile, and
is installed on the weapons rail of the F-14 aircraft. The
launcher provides electrical and coolant connections
between the weapons rail and the missile. The
mechanical components of the launcher consist of a
gas-operated, hook-opening linkage and two ejectors, a
ground safety lock and positive launch pin, coolant, and
electrical umbilicals. The launcher can also be installed
on the wing-mounted, multipurpose pylon by using an
ADU-299/E MISSILE LAUNCHER
The ADU-299/E missile launcher adapter (fig.
3-28) is attached to the parent rack of wing stations 1,
2,4, and 5 on A-6 aircraft. The adapter is used to adapt
the LAU-7 missile launcher to the parent rack providing
Sidewinder missile capabilities for A-6 aircraft.
Mechanical attachment of the adapter to the ejector rack
is provided by two suspension lugs on 30-inch centers.
Mechanical attachment of the adapter to the LAU-7
launcher is provided by two swivel nuts positioned on
30-inch centers to mate with the launcher bolts. When
the launcher and adapters are electrically connected and
mechanically mated, electrical power is supplied by an
adapter harness from the wing pylon to the aft end of the
LAU-127 GUIDED MISSILE
The LAU-127 guided missile launcher (fig. 3-29) is
designed to carry and launch the AIM-120 series
AMRAAM missile. The LAU-127 will also be capable
of launching the AIM-9 series sidewinder missile.
LAU-132 GUIDED MISSILE
The LAU-132 guided missile launcher is similar in
appearance and operation to the LAU-93 launcher. The
LAU-132 was developed for carriage and launch of the
AIM-54C Phoenix missile on the F-14D aircraft.
