Information Agency Rider reports that British military aircraft attacked DAISH (IG) militants in Iraq, using high-precision missiles for the first time Brimstone class "air-ground". The news agency refers to the head of the British Cabinet of Ministers David Cameron.


Media: British Air Force planes first hit the positions of IG missiles "Brimstone"


At the same time, according to the tradition established in the camp of the western coalition, neither the launches of the missiles themselves from the planes, nor the results of air strikes were demonstrated. Which objects were hit by missiles with homing heads, is also not reported.

For your information:
Brimstone - air-to-ground self-guided missile that entered service with the British Royal Air Force in 2005. Upgraded Brimstone rockets have the possibility of laser targeting. Start of development is dated 1996 year. The declared range of the rocket is about 22 km. However, the British media write that the radius of destruction of targets for new modifications has been increased at least threefold.

The Brimstone missiles were once actively used against government forces in Libya during the NATO operation, which led to the complete collapse of the once highly successful North African country.

    Well, then they’ll figure it out and if they really hit not on peaceful objects, but on militants, then they will show and tell. And now you can simply proudly say that they bombed the terrorists.

        The article has a typo. They had laser guidance before. The upgraded version received an active millimeter seeker combined with a laser.

        In general, a very interesting solution in terms of price-quality ratio. We should think about adapting Cornet to similar tasks.

          No not like this.
          Designed by the original laser seeker from AGM-114 Hellfire. During development, almost everything was redesigned, AGM-114 was abandoned from LGS
          Initially (entering service) had only ARGSN millimeter range.

          Experience in Afghanistan (negative), urgently required retrofitting with a dual-mode guidance system. Urgent Operational Requirement in 2008

          We added a laser (which allows the “gunner” to choose specific goals when defeat of friendly forces or civilians is possible.

          Upgrading to 2 modes cost a budget (from single mode) between £ 35,000 and £ 45,000 plus VAT

          laser GOS according to STANAG 3733 (theoretically it can support the 2nd illumination while it does not work)


          can hit targets moving at 50 mph



          1.) SPEAR Capability 2 Block 1 (the suspension on the Tornado of 11.2015 should have been) targets up to 70 mph (110 km / h)
          2.) SPEAR Drop 2 (JSOW-ER) with Hamilton Sundstrand TJ-150 turbojet remote control range up to 100-120 km

      I sincerely sympathize with all kinds of pickups and trucks that move there. Above are Brimstone British missiles, below are ambushes by fighters from TOW ATGMs. This is some kind of horror for which anti-tank weapons are used. ANTITANK, CARL, against ordinary pickup trucks!

      And what does laser homing mean? Highlighted - launched - then the rocket itself illuminates the target or what? Just in the photo I see a classic head for working on a reflected laser beam, i.e. with external target designation. Or did they illuminate the target — did the rocket calculate the trajectory, go by inertial, on approaching it, take the contrast spot in the IR spot closest to the calculated point and put a jet into it?

        "It's like a microscope to hammer nails, then pickups" ////

        For the price - yes. And according to checks of the maximum ability of weapons -
        another thing. It's one thing - a pickup at high speed rushes along a winding
        road, the other is a slowly crawling tank.
        If you managed to get on a pickup truck, then even more soak on the tower and the tank when needed.

        In Lebanon, Israel had a problem - off-road motorcycles with which militants
        Hezbollah remotely fired rockets at Israeli ambush positions in Israeli cities.
        To get with the F-16 rocket into a racing motorcycle was an infrequent luck.
        Now UAVs do this more accurately with special mini-missiles.

        The first version flew on 8 km. The second on 22. So it turns out 3 times.
        Plus it has already been said that the first version is laser. The second is a double GOS. Laser + millimeter.

        2. She has a 2-mode GOS (94Hz ARGS + laser standard STANAG 3733) and have ANN
        theoretically, it can go to the target area without visual identification of the operator.
        And in ARGS, the radar picture of targets on this theater is always loaded from the carrier

        4. Three (range), this is SPEAR Drop 2 (JSOW-ER) with Hamilton Sundstrand TJ-150 turbojet remote control range up to 100-120 km (trials go from 2014 to Typhoon)

          The millimeter-range ARGS can "on its own" if the Weapon systems officer ("WSO" - "wizzo") loaded the target data into it and such targets are FOUND.

          There is no goal in the self-destruction zone.
          They also have an algorithm for selecting targets for m / y missiles at group launch of 24 missiles at a group target.
