Dillon Aero is developing a new Minigun Pod for use on small, fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters that fly close-air support missions.
     

The Minigun Pod is specifically designed for use on small, fixed-wing aircraft, such as the Embraer Tucano or Hawker Beechcraft AT-6, and rotorcraft that fly close-air support missions. Engineering development will continue through 2013. Customer deliveries are slated to begin in 2014.

The Minigun Pod is easily installed with minimum integration required. Other key features and capabilities include:
•3,000 shots per minute
• 7.62mm NATO
• 100 percent self-contained gun, unit, magazine and battery power
• Mounts on standard 14-inch NATO rack
• Integral bore sight adjustment
• Estimated total weight is 190 kg (380 lbs fully loaded)

“Dillon Miniguns are known for their ability to achieve more bullets on target and are a more effective alternative to .50 caliber gun pods,” said company Vice President Chris Dillon. “The new Minigun Pod offers this capability to more operators.”
