A contract was negotiated on 30 June 1965 to design and develop the necessary mounts and feed systems to accept armament subsystems and armor on the CH-47A Helicopter. The contractor conducted design tests at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, in November 1965. Results of contractor-design tests indicated a need to modify some of the armament subsystems and aircraft structure. Further tests to resolve safety-of-flight problem areas were recommended.
