Can't comment on efficiency since I never had to use it (fortunately), but I can comment on the shelf life. Had an A400 that self emptied after 6 years, and replaced that with an A600 that self emptied after 3-4 years. Don't expect 12 years of life if it's mounted in a plane and exposed to heat.
Does the H3R RT-A600 fire extinguisher come with the mounting bracket?
Yes, this product includes the mounting bracket.
