Experimental results on the wing rook of low-aspeot-ratio slender delta wings with a sharp leading edge at subsonio and transonic speeds are presented. The effeots of aspeot ratio, the semi-none and interceptor mounting on the upper surface of delta wing and the form of the leading edge sharpening are demonstrated. The range of angles of attack and wing aspeot ratios limiting the regimes of exoitation of oscillation are determined. The effect of the air compressibility on the wing rook parameters is also demonstrated.
