The RAF has taken the latest version of the Brimstone missile

MBDA Missile Systems : 25 July, 2016  (Application Story)
The MBDA Brimstone missile has been on display at Farnborough and has now been taken for use by the Royal Air Force on the Tornado GR4
The RAF has taken the latest version of the Brimstone missile

The latest version of MBDA’s Brimstone precision strike missile has formally entered service on the RAF’s Tornado GR4. This upgrade is a significant step in the spiral development of the Brimstone weapon. It introduces an insensitive munition compliant rocket motor and warhead. Together with an enhanced version of MBDA’s unique Dual Mode Semi-Active Laser/ Millimetric Wave seeker and an enhanced autopilot this significantly increases the weapon’s envelope (off-axis and maximum range).

MBDA is furthermore supporting the integration of Brimstone onto Typhoon. Carriage of the Brimstone three missile launchers and missiles is also part of the flying display at Farnborough Air Show for the first time.  Brimstone will enter service on Typhoon as part of the P3E programme and the Royal Air Force’s Project Centurion.
