Abstract

In order to bring about a simple attachment of an ammunition container to a gun carriage of an automatic weapon and to guarantee better access to the cartridge belt for the loading and reloading process, as well as to reduce the ergonomic stresses for attaching the ammunition container to the gun carriage, the container carrier 2 contains mounting brackets on both sides 4, each with a downwardly spaced receptacle 5 for a hanging and pivoting movement of the ammunition container 1, which is equipped with location bolts 13 for this purpose. In the longitudinal axial direction of the container carrier 2, fastening points 7, 8 for the ammunition container 1 are provided asymmetrically spaced apart from the receptacles 5. The distance a between the first attachment point 7 and the receptacle 5 corresponds to the ammunition container (1) in the receptacle (5), the distance between the receptacle 5 and a first locking means (16), while the second attachment point 8 on the container carrier at a distance of Length L of the ammunition container to the first attachment point is arranged so that after hanging the ammunition container in the receptacle 5 and a pivoting movement around this receptacle 5, an oblique loading position 9 and in a second pivoting movement around the first attachment point 7 an ammunition removal position 12 can be assumed.
