AEI Systems’ deactivated ADEN 30mm gun is supplied totally complete with a London Proof House ‘certificate of deactivation’, together with 5 linked ballast/dummy rounds partially loaded through the feed mechanism.
All parts have been thoroughly cleaned, repainted and lubricated and the gun professionally re-assembled by AEI’s resident armourer.
The 5 linked ballast/dummy rounds are loaded into the gun feed mechanism, with the first round jammed in the primary rammed position. The slides are therefore to the rear and return springs near fully compressed.
Using the return spring removal tool (optional), the feed mechanism is removable and slides functional using the hand cocking tool (optional).
The ADEN 30 mm gun is a gas-operated, electrically primed revolver cannon, continuously improved and updated since its conception in the early 1950s
The compact nature of this self-powered cannon makes it an attractive option for relatively simple on-aircraft installation, for the underslung pod, under-fuselage blister and interior fuselage carriage.
Mounting of the gun is possible at any angle through 360 degrees on the longitudinal axis to suit aircraft installation requirements. Both left and right-hand feed versions are manufactured.
