Internal and external views of the 30mm Aden gun.


The Aden gun is installed in many military aircraft and can fire 30mm ammumition at a rate of 1200 to 1400 rounds per minute.

Within the gun, a rotating breech cylinder is used to carry a succession of rounds to the firing position. Beneath the breech cylinder, slides move backwards and forwards to rotate the breech cylinder and drive the ammunition into the chambers. Understanding how the breech cylinder and slides interact is key to understanding the operation of the gun.
