LAU-115/A and LAU-115A/A Guided Missile Launchers
LAU-115/A and LAU-115A/A are rail launchers designed for carriage and launch of
AIM-7 missiles from F/A-18 aircraft. The launcher is suspended from the BRU-32 bomb rack on wing stations. The LAU-7 launchers or LAU-127 launchers may be attached to the sides of the LAU-115 for carriage of AIM-9 or AIM-120 missiles. The LAU-115 requires use of a jettison adapter (ECP-422) for safe separation of the LAU-115/LAU-127/AM-RAAM when jettison as a package.
