U.S. helicopter armament subsystems

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The United States military has developed a number of Helicopter Armament Subsystems since the early 1960s. These systems are used for offensive and defensive purposes and make use of a wide variety of weapon types including, but not limited to machine guns, grenade launchers, autocannon, and rockets. Various systems are still in use, though many have become obsolete.

Typical armament for UH-1 gunship, M134 minigun and Mk 40 FFAR with a swivel-mounted M60 machine gun
