MQ-9 REAPER TEST SHOTS
In testing conducted at the US Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, CA from December 2013 – January 2014, a Brimstone-equipped MQ-9 Reaper Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) scored nine direct hits against stationary and maneuvering targets traveling at speeds as fast as 70 MPH, while launching from up to 7 miles away at altitudes as high as 20,000 feet – realistic “middle of the envelope” shot profiles. These tests demonstrate how Brimstone’s dual mode Semi-Active Laser and Active mmW radar seekers work in tandem to ensure direct hits, even against high speed and maneuvering targets.

Friend sent me this tiny toy. I think she forgot that I live at 10,000 feet.
