The latest version of MBDA’s Brimstone precision strike missile has formally entered service on the Royal Air Force’s Tornado GR4 fighter jet. It introduces an insensitive munition compliant rocket motor and warhead. Together with an enhanced version of MBDA’s dual mode semi-active laser/millimetric wave seeker and an enhanced autopilot this significantly increases the weapon’s envelope (off-axis and maximum range).

Brimstone will enter service on Typhoon fighter as part of the P3E programme and the Royal Air Force’s Project Centurion.
