Typical military use is IMHO <(platform)-mounted (weapon)>, as in <tripod
or vehicle-mounted anti-aircraft weapon>. Inverted constructions,
drone>, <scope-mounted rifle>, indicate that <mounted> has been
syntactically blended with <equipped>; e.g. <camera-equipped stun guns>,
<machine-gun-equipped 1925 Rolls-Royce>.
