Thales announced the completion of a test firing campaign with the 70 mm laser-guided rocket, being developed by its subsidiary Forges de Zeebrugge (FZ).

The test firings of the new FZ275LGR rocket were conducted in South Africa in late October from a Rooivalk attack helicopter in service with the South African Air Force (SAAF).

With precision to within 1m, this new guided air-ground rocket improves target engagement capabilities while reducing platform vulnerability.
