ADU-400/E Weapon Skid Loading Lift Adapter The ADU-400/E weapon skid loading lift adapter (fig. 9-42) consists of a hydraulically controlled steel lift frame that supports a drilled steel tubular beam. The hydraulic system includes a fluid tank, hand lever, cylinder, and pressure gauge. There are extendable outriggers with height adjustment handles to provide stability when the adapter is mounted on the appropriate transporter. The    ADU-400/E    adapter    is    mounted    on    the MHU-191/M  munitions  transporter.  It  is  used  with  a variety  of  adapters  to  lift  and  position  armament  and maintenance devices on the aircraft. This adapter has an SWL of 2,500 pounds. REVIEW NUMBER 6 Q1. What is the purpose of adapters when used with skids and weapons transporters? Q2. Describe  how  the  brakes  work  on  the  Aero 12C bomb skid. Q3. What is the SWL of the Aero 12C bomb skid? Q4. List  the  adapters  used  with  the  12C  bomb skid. Q5. What   adapter   should   you   use   to   store   a soft-skin weapon on an Aero 12C bomb skid? Q6. What    is    the    SWL    of    the    MHU-191/M munitions transporter? Q7. List   the   adapters/adapter   assemblies   used with the Aero 58A skid adapter. Q8. When mounted on the Aero 58A skid adapter, the  ADU-483/E  skid  adapter  assembly  can support two weapons of what diameter? Q9. What    weapon    skid    loading    lift    adapter consists of a hydraulically controlled steel lift frame? TRUCKS LEARNING    OBJECTIVE:    Identify    trucks used for ordnance handling to include ammunition handling, forklift, pallet, and Aero 33D/E  bomb  trucks.  Recognize  the  safe  loads for each. The   term   truck   applies   to   either   a   manually propelled  or  self-propelled  vehicle.  Gasoline  engines, diesel engines, or electric motors power self-propelled trucks. Gasoline-  or  diesel-powered  trucks  are  equipped with  exhaust  system  spark  arresting  devices.  These devices help ensure safe operation of the trucks in areas where  there  is  danger  of  fire  or  explosion  caused  by sparks. These vehicles must meet rigid mechanical and 9-26 Figure 9-42.—ADU-400/E weapon skid loading lift adapter mounted to an MHU-191/M munitions transporter.
