6.17 MISSION EQUIPMENT.
The AH-64A helicopter mission equipment includes Hell-
fire missiles and launchers, 2.75-inch rockets and launch-
ers, 30mm ammunition, chaff cartridges, and CBR filters/
blowers. External fuel tanks are described in paragraph
6.13. All electronic mission equipment is part of basic
weight and may be found in Chart A (Form DD 365-1).
6.17.1 Hellfire Launchers.
Figure 6-2 presents the
M-272 Hellfire launchers, in pairs, weight, and mo-
ment/100. When four launchers are required, double the
6.17.2 Hellfire Missiles.
The present training, dummy,
and laser seeker missiles weigh the same. Table 6-6 lists
the weight and moment/100 of each missile accumulated
to a capacity of four missiles per launcher. When a pair of
inboard launchers are filled to capacity, double the (mis-
sile No. 4) weight and moment/100. When four launchers
are used, multiply the numbers by four.
6.17.3 Rocket Launchers (2.75 inch).
presents the M-261 2.75-inch rocket launchers, in pairs,
weight, and moment/100. Double the weight and mo-
ment/100 when four launchers are used.
6.17.4 Rockets (2.75-Inch).
Present training rockets
are designated H519 with an M156 warhead, M423 fuse,
and a MK 40 MOD 3 rocket motor. Dummy and training
rockets are the same weight. Table 6-7 lists the 2.75-inch
rocket accumulated weight and moment/100 to a capacity
of 19 per launcher. Select the correct number of rockets,
then double the weight and moment/100 for a pair of
launchers loaded evenly. Table 6-8 lists an MPSM war-
head with a MK 66 rocket motor. The tables are presented
so that any combination or mix can be easily determined
for a launcher.
6.17.5 Ammunition (30mm).
Table 6-9 presents the
M-788 or M-789 30mm linkless aluminum case ammuni-
tion accumulated weight, and moment/100 to a capacity
of 1200 rounds. Approximately 90 rounds are in the right
chute and the remainder is in the magazine. A note at the
bottom of the table allows conversion of the table numbers
to ADEN or DEFA ammunition.
6.17.6 Chaff Cartridges.
The helicopter survivability
equipment is a kit. It is added to the helicopter as dictated
by mission requirements. The electronic equipment, con-
trols, and chaff supports are part of the basic weight and
are listed in Chart A (DD 365-1). Table 6-10 lists the chaff
dispenser empty and the chaff dispenser (full) with 30
chaff (M-1) cartridges. These values are to be used on
Form F (DD 365-4) when chaff is on board.
6.17.7 Chemical, Biological, and Radiological (CBR)
The CBR filters/blowers are used by
the crewmembers as dictated by mission requirements.
The CBR mounting bracket, located on the seats left ar-
mored wing, is listed on Chart A (DD 365-1) and when
installed shall be accounted for on Chart C (DD 365-3) as
part of the basic weight. When the filters/blowers are
aboard, the values listed in table 6-11 are to be used to
record the weights and moments of the filters/blowers as
a part of the helicopter loading on Form F (DD 365-4).
