New Study for Brimstone 2 on Typhoon

Posted on June 23, 2014

PARIS (BNS): The UK Ministry of Defence has awarded BAE Systems an initial study contract valued at £5 million to evaluate the integration of the MBDA Brimstone 2 air-to-ground precision weapon with the Typhoon aircraft.

Work is currently underway at Warton, Lancashire to assess the aerodynamic properties of carrying the weapon through a series of wind tunnel tests, MBDA said in a statement. 

Alongside delivering an effective route to Brimstone 2 integration for the UK Royal Air Force (RAF) by 2018, the study is also set to deliver wider benefits through the exploration of a common launcher approach which could also be used for other multiple weapons stores such as SPEAR 3.
