AMMUNITION BOX

The design guarantees smooth movement of the ammunition belt with no risk of jamming or fouling because of aircraft maneuvers or acceleration.

SOFT MOUNT

The recoil forces that occur when the weapon is fired can be a source of structural fatigue on the carrier aircraft and can also reduce the precision of the gun. In FN’s pod, the machine gun is fitted on a soft mount that absorbs the recoil forces.

BORE-SIGHTING DEVICE

An elevation and azimuth adjustment device enables the gun to match the carrier aircraft’s optical sighting line.

SAFETY & COCKING DEVICE

This system incorporates safety mechanisms in the recocking device so that there are no chambered rounds until the system is engaged to fire. The machine gun can always be recocked in flight without limitation.
