The ADEN 30 mm gun is a gas-operated, electrically primed revolver type gun, that has continuously been 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, whether considered for an underslung pod, under-fuselage blister or interior fuselage carriage.
Mounting of the gun is possible at any angle through 360 degrees on the longitudinal axis to suit specific aircraft installation requirements. Both left and right-hand feed versions are available.
AEI manufactures the complete ADEN 30 mm gun, all support equipment and conducts proof and acceptance testing.
AEI offers its customers full logistical, technical and spares support. The expertise within the company enables AEI to offer the highest level of product support essential for the efficient and effective operational role demanded of the equipment.
