|I have not published missile data commercially,
but I have been accumulating scale data on them nonetheless. Some of my missile
drawings have appeared in Sport Rocketry
magazine. I have also been working on a series of booklets for NARTS, the National Association of
Rocketry's Technical Service. The Nike Hercules is available in the currently
available "Fourteen US Army Missiles of the Cold War." Others will appear
in subsequent books.
These drawings were converted from my original MacDraw documents into 72 pixel-per-inch gif images. Windows machines may print them at 75 pixels per inch--4% smaller than the scales indicate.
"STA" numbers refer to distance from nose tip, tail end, or some other reference point along the rocket.
The symbol that looks like an O with a line through it means diameter.
