Figure 11. 2 Complete Launch Vehicle (AAR Outline)
In its fully configured state the DSB launch vehicle is capable of withstanding loads
expected during railroad humping and should be attached to the rail car as specified
in Palletized Load System (PLS) M1074/M1075 Truck, M1076 Trailer, M1077
Flatrack Transportability Report CDRL A095 - Contract DAAE07-90-C-R035.
In order to allow unrestricted travel the launch vehicle may be sectionalized. This
operation includes the removal of the tail lift, launching system, crane and far bank
support (See 11.8 Sectionalization of Launch Vehicle and TM-5-5420-279-23).
Each of these components include integral lifting and lashing points and when
transported on a rail car with a deck height of 50 inches this falls within the AAR
gauge for unrestricted travel.
