Experimental Weapons Test Case-Advanced Gun System

This test case is based on the Ordnance Systems 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the AGS. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the AGS program. No attempt has been made to simulate the AGS design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the experimental weapons template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known ordnance program.
