Unguided Bomb Ordnance Systems Test Case- Mk 82

This test case is based on the Unguided Bomb Ordnance Systems 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of Mk 82. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the Mk 82 program. No attempt has been made to simulate the Mk 82 design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the unguided bomb ordnance systems template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known ordnance program.
