Bomb racks - a device for hanging bombs on aircraft. Bombs hung under the fuselage, under the wings, or the use of their location inside the fuselage, in the so-called cassettes.
About outdoor location bombs increases air resistance movement of aircraft and thereby reduce its speed. The outer suspension is applied on airplanes with close inner space (exploration machine, light bombers), as well as for very large bomb, the size of which shall not be placed bombs inside the cabin.
In that and other cargo discharged placement location relative to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft must be symmetrical and, if possible, close to the cross-section passing through the center of gravity of the machine. Under the fuselage hang larger bombs under the wings - Other. Depending on the number of bombs in the bomb racks that are designed, they are either single or group. A single bomb racks is a tubular metal beam or T-attached to the wing spars and fuselage 2-3 locations with brackets and podvyazey.
Several of these beams joined in common bracket and arranged parallel to each other and to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft bomb racks form a group. Each beam has a lock, the hook is suspended from his bomb ring or eyelet screwed to the body bomb. On either side of the lock, front and rear, on the beam fixed tongs, serving stops the front and the rear of the bombs and prevent its oscillation motion of the aircraft.
To prevent chickenpox by unscrewing the fuse air jet airplane in flight, hinged on the beam strengthened safety plate or U-shaped wire plug at the closed castle plays the role of "the stick that is inserted into the wheel," and dismissed chickenpox when falling bombs. Castle bomb racks should, when fixing it abalone bomb or suspended its rings to ensure against inadvertent opening and Drop bombs and trouble-free release of its action in the case of the castle by means of a drive release gear.
