The CH-47 Chinook mount consists of a domestically designed gun mount and a base interface indigenous to the mission profile.
The platform requires no structural modifications for the integration of the mount. Movement of the gun on the mount is restricted to prevent it from striking the platform when in the firing position.
The foldable gun mount allows FLIGHT WITH CLOSED WINDOWS. For M134 Miniguns, an electric switch that conforms to aviation standards that cuts the electric current to the gun is included on the mount.
Its tool-free disassembly and assembly feature ensures a VERY SHORT TURN-AROUND time.
It is suitable for 7.62mm M134 Minigun, 5.56mm PM556 Micro Minigun, and M249 and M240 machine guns.
