Recommended Posts

The key aspects are full integration of the laser-guided version of Sagem’s AASM “Hammer” air-to-surface missile (which has already been employed in Mali via an urgent operational requirement project) and MBDA’s Meteor air-to-air missile, plus a new-generation laser designation pod to be developed by Thales, with all of the new bells and whistles to be validated in 2018.
