1 ae Gass PIL Missile The Pershing II Missile is a two stage, five section aerodynamic structure transported by and launched from a mobile erector launcher. Using a terminal guidance system, the PII achieves a high degree of accuracy over a range in excess of 400 miles. Each of the five missile sections is interchangeable with any other of the same type in the PII system. LENGTH 418 IN. MAXIMUM DIAMETER 40 IN. WEIGHT 16,443 LB W PII Missile Sections © Guidance and Control/Adapter Section (G&C/A) - The G&C/A section is a two piece assembly that consists of the guidance and control section and an adapter section to interface with either first or second stage, depending on the missile configuration: 0 Radar Section (RS) - The RS contains the radar unit composed of the transmitter/receiver, stabilized antenna unit, and power supply elements. The function of the radar unit is to transmit radio frequency energy to the target area, receive altitude and video return, and route the detected video and altitude information to the digital correlator unit. © Warhead Section (WHS) - The WHS contains an air burst/surface burst: (AB/SB) nuclear warhead, rate gyro, interconnecting electrical networks, and pass-through missile electrical networks. © Propulsion Section, First and Second Stage - Each of the propulsion sections consists of a Kevlar motor case serving as a propellant container and the outer skin of the missile. The training missile will have the same dimensions and weight as a tactical missile. The major difference is the lack of ordnance in the training missile. 1 —Gacva section 4—Secono stace 2— RADAR SECTION 5 = FIRST STAGE 3 WARHEAD SECTION \— iS & PII Erector Launcher Semitrailer Mounted (EL) The EL is a tandem-axle semitrailer used to assemble, transport, count, erect, and fire the Pershing missile.
