Abstract : Apparatus is provided for the carriage and release of stores from aircraft comprising two similar ejector pistons having integral latch hook and being so hydraulically interconnected that release of the carriage store is effected by simultaneous movement of the piston to a fully extended position. Provision is made for preventing the opening of the latch hooks when it is desired to lower the store for removal from the aircraft and means for selectively opening the individual latch hooks. The suspension and release device is advantageously used in conjunction with a pair of dependent hydraulically actuated sway braces integrally fastened to each piston. (Author)
