Abstract : A dual dependent ejector assembly for ordnance stores on aircraft, etc. which imparts to the store, in addition to normal ejecting forces, an angular rate of movement and/or an angular attitude. The ejecting forces are applied at fore and aft locations on the store (e.g., bomb) by piston-like ejectors which are actuated by hydraulic circuitry. Dual dependency is achieved by the action of a stepped piston which transmits equal volumes of fluid from two source chambers to each of the two ejectors. A third chamber in which the stepped piston operates supplements the fluid supplied to the ejectors by the first two chambers by means of a valve distribution system which includes two pressure responsive spool valves.
