  • Patent number: 6293179
    Abstract: A central support plank section is transversely secured to the floor of a helicopter cabin area at exterior side wall door openings on opposite sides of the cabin area. Specially designed pintle arm assemblies are rotationally secured to opposite ends of the central support plank sections, with each of the pintle arm assemblies underlying and operatively supporting a cabin door area machine gun. Each pintle arm assembly is pivotable about a vertical axis in a manner permitting its machine gun to be horizontally swung into the cabin area to a stowed orientation therein, and is provided with a lock ring/detent structure that permits the pintie assembly to be quickly and easily locked in a selectively variable horizontal rotational orientation.

  • Patent number: 6293016
    Abstract: Opposite ends of the central section of an armament support plank structure are secured to the floor area of an aircraft cabin area, in a load transfer relationship with an underfloor support beam, by securing a skin doubler member to the support beam and replacing a portion of an existing floor panel which overlies the support beam with a specially designed apertured plank mounting plate which pivotally receives mounting struts. When it is desired to operatively mount the support plank structure on the cabin floor area, the struts are pivoted upwardly relative to their associated mounting plate and secured to the opposite ends of the central support plank section. Armament loads on the opposite ends of the central support plank section are efficiently transferred to the underlying, skin doubler-reinforced support beam.

  • Patent number: 6286411
    Abstract: A machine gun and associated armament apparatus, including an ammunition box for supplying belted ammunition to the gun, are exteriorly supported on a landing gear sponsor tow plate of a helicopter, adjacent a cabin area gunner's window, using a specially designed pintle support structure. The machine gun is horizontally rotatable about a vertical azimuth rotation axis which is forwardly tilted and substantially parallel to the similarly tilted rotor mast axis. The gun's upward firing elevation angle is limited to 1.5 degrees when the gun is pointed forwardly. However, due to the forward tilting of the gun's azimuth rotation axis, its maximum upward firing elevation angle automatically increases as the gun is swung rearwardly, thereby desirably increasing the gun's firing range to the side and rear of the helicopter while at the same time automatically maintaining the bullet path of the forwardly pointed gun safely below the forwardly drooped operational rotor tip path.

  • Patent number: 5767436
    Abstract: An elongated support plank structure longitudinally extends transversely through the cabin area of a helicopter and has outer end portions projecting outwardly beyond opposite sides of the helicopter. A pair of 30 mm machine guns are mounted on the plank end portions and are supplied with belted ammunition from magazine boxes mounted on the plank within the cabin area via flexible feed chutes interconnected between the magazine boxes and interiorly rollered feed adapters interconnected between the outer ends of the feed chutes and the inlets of the machine gun feeder mechanisms. The 30 mm machine guns are secured to the outer plank end portions by specially designed mounting structures each having a cradle portion with axis-adjustable roller assemblies that engage the gun and essentially preclude lateral movement thereof relative to the cradle, but permit roller-guided longitudinal gun recoil movement, during firing of the gun.

  • Patent number: 5461963
    Abstract: Belted ammunition of either the "ball" or the shorter "SLAP" type is supplied through a flexible feed chute to a 7.62 mm mini machine gun using a specially configured feed adapter interconnected between the outlet end of the feed chute and the inlet of the gun feeder mechanism. The feed adapter, through which the ammunition passes into the gun feed mechanism, is provided with at least one internal roller around which the ammunition belt operatively passes. The roller has a side surface contour with a sloped shoulder portion which complementarily engages the sloping shoulders of the individual ammunition rounds passing around the roller. This complementary shoulder engagement longitudinally indexes the rounds within the adapter and limits undesirable longitudinal shifting of the rounds therein.
