VENOM is a derivative of the world famous ADEN 30mm and is a gas operated, electrically primed revolver gun. Configuration is similar to ADEN but with a lengthened barrel for optimised velocity, a muzzle brake for reduced recoil and a barrel aligned recoil buffer for improved accuracy.
With an effective range to 2000 m and the selectable option of single shot, 220 spm or fully automatic 1,300 spm, VENOM’s ADEN heritage makes it a highly price competitive, non-ITAR restricted alternative to the M230 LF Chain Gun.
Designed for Turret, Remote Weapon Mount and Naval installations, VENOM is compatible with NATO standard ADEN/DEFA 30 x 113mm ammunition as well as M788 and M789 variants.
VENOM is another AEI Systems in-house design and is manufactured to aircraft standard quality entirely in the UK.
