Naval combat aircraft and weapons use highly
complex suspension, arming, and releasing devices.
The majority of these devices are electronically
operated and are part of the aircraft's electrical circuits.
The devices are activated by a hand switch or
automatically through a circuit-closing device in the
system. Manual operation is possible, if needed.
Current suspension, arming, and releasing devices
for aircraft require the use of associated electrical gear.
