There are currently more than 150 weapons
elevators, involving over 55 different designs, installed
on aircraft carriers. The size, type, and location of these
weapons elevators will vary among the different classes
of aircraft carriers.
The following text contains a brief description of
upper-stage) of weapons elevators. Regardless of the
type of installation, a weapons elevator provides a safe
and efficient means for you to handle weapons and
weapons components among the magazines and the

A counterweight-type governor device for limiting
speed of elevator down travel is located in the upper end
of the elevator trunk. The governor is operated by a wire
rope connected to a lever of the broken-rope safety
device on the elevator platform. Then, the rope is
passed over the governor sheave and attached to the
governor spooling drum on the hoisting winch.
Excessive down speeds causes the governor limits
