Single stage gas guns are typically used for accelerating the projectiles in bird and hail impact tests of aerospace components and engines. In this paper an alternative design for single stage gas gun is studied, which is derived from V3 canon. Three dimensional numerical simulations is carried out for the optimal secondary connection angle with the main barrel. A one dimensional code is developed for the V3 canon based design. Design of experiments conducted to find the response surface for the optimal location of the secondary connection, volume and pressure of the secondary tank.
