Title: MAGAZINE AND METHOD FOR LAUNCHING COUNTERMEASURES
Abstract:
A magazine for storing and launching countermeasures arranged in cartridges, comprising a plurality of longitudinal cartridge cases forming the magazine, where each cartridge case comprises side walls and a front opening and a centre axis, where the magazine is adapted to be mounted on an aircraft, where the side walls of two adjacent cartridge cases are arranged to each other in a slidable manner in a longitudinal direction, and where the magazine comprises a tilting means adapted to tilt the cartridge cases, such that the openings of the cartridge cases can be directed in a selected direction. The advantage of the invention is that a countermeasure can be directed in a desired angle before it is launched.
