|Ejector Racks MER and TER are used in conjunction with
a Centerline Pylon and enable aircraft to carry GP bombs such as Mk81/ Mk82, cluster
bombs, LGB and others. It is also capable of carrying and firing rocket launchers
such as LAU-68, LAU-131 and flare launchers such as SUU-25. Maximum load capacity
is 5000 lbs for MER while for TER it is 3000 lbs.
MER uses six and TER uses three ejector release units (ERUs) which hold and enable release of stores. The ERUs are located in two groups of three : one aft and one forward, symmetrically arranged about the centerline and at 45 degrees at either side
Each ERU holds the store by means of two suspension hooks placed at 14 in (std NATO) and also by a pair of swaybrace pads which provide steady captive flight. Each ERU uses one or more impulse cartridges which enable safe separation of stores.
