If it helps, from a TDS:

AeroShell Grease 17 is extreme pressure multipurpose grease recommended for heavily loaded sliding steel surfaces where protection against seizure and corrosion is desired; e.g. bogie pivot pins on jet aircraft landing gear assemblies.
It is made with synthetic diester base oil, molybdenum disulfide and Microgel non-melting inorganic thickener, which provides outstanding anti-friction bearing lubrication.
It has a useful temperature range of -100 F (-73 C) to +300 F (+149 C). AeroShell Grease 17 is qualified under MIL-G-21164D specification.

Seems to be a lithium complex with 5% moly.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Hey mate,

Aeroshell is a di-ester based grease, and I think uses a modified clay based thickener, it's definitely not lithium based.

I think it's discontinued now, (replaced with Aeroshell 33MS ??) and FWIW I'd use CAT Desert Gold grease instead.

You can get it from Westrac.

This is a synthetic oil (PAO) based grease with 5% moly and is calcium sulphonate thickened, so resists rust and water washout extremely well.
