Successful Firing Of Operational Dual Mode Brimstone Missile Against Fast In-Shore Attack Craft

The first firing of an operational Dual Mode Brimstone missile (Monday 25th June) against a Fast In-Shore Attack Craft (FIAC) proved to be a resounding success and a clear demonstration of the unmatched operational flexibility that the weapon provides for air, naval and land based platforms.

During the trial, which took place at the QinetiQ Aberporth range in Wales, a RAF Tornado GR4 targeted a fast moving FIAC RT (realistic target), successfully engaging and sinking it.
