Based on the existing TG480 ejector, the TG482 was designed in order to eject 250lbs small diameter munitions and to ensure the specific ejection requirements of the same, i.e. :

  • an ejection under high velocity that requires a high level of thrust (End Of Stroke velocity up to 8 m/s)
  • the low mass/inertia of such munitions requires adding a VE wedge between the ejection pistons and the munition to avoid the yaw movement during the thrust

This device is a pneumatic ejector designed to cope with high level technical and operational specifications (high release speed, for instance). It is equipped, amongst others, with pre constraint device including a torque limiter.
