Subsonic Missile(non-ICBM) Test Case- AGM114 Hellfire

This test case is based on the Subsonic Missile (non-ICBM) Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Hellfire. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Hellfire program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of Hellfire nor has any attempt been made to simulate the mutilple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as illustration of how the subsonic missile template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known missile program.
