My understanding was that the Aden 25mm was cancelled after development had been completed and the bugs ironed out the system and was very much a political decision along with deleting(or non use) of the Eurofighter cannon. It was also designed to be carried by the Hawk 200 light attack aircraft and also as a possible retrofit to various ADEN 30/DEFA gunned aircraft.
