Nobles Worldwide, Inc. (Nobles), will be displaying the latest innovative crew served mount in its VIPER family of mounts, the VIPER Air, during the Association of the United States Army’s (AUSA) 2017 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C. The VIPER Air is the only mount of its kind having been purpose built to mount a M3D .50 Caliber Machine Gun in the door of a CASA-295/CN-235.
The VIPER Air was recently qualified by Airbus Defence & Space for the CASA-295/CN-234 and will be delivered to its first customer in October 2017. The mount will be retrofittable for existing platforms through a Service Bulletin or as an option on new aircraft.
Additionally, Nobles will be displaying a MK44 30MM Linked Ammunition Handling System, featuring Nobles’ advanced composite flexible ammunition chutes, developed for a two-man medium caliber infantry fighting vehicle turret. The show will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from October 9-11, and Nobles will exhibit at booth #244.
