Detail of the aft end of the tail unit.

At top is the LOX replenishing coupling on the underside of the LOX replenishing coupling balcony.

The launcher table had a fitting which connected to this coupling to top off the LOX tank.

On the aft face of the tail unit proper are the steam vent (bottom) and hydrogen peroxide overflow/vent port.
