To reduce the overall weight and dimensional envelope of the launcher, it has been
designed for easy and rapid sectionalization. The crane, Tail lift and slide frame based
launcher and A-Frame stabilizer feet are all removable. This is achieved through the use
of quick disconnect hydraulic hoses, plug and socket electrical connections and wide use
of simple pinned mechanical attachments. Lifting and tie-down points are provided on the
