Flight trials have been completed at BAE Systems’ Warton to test the MBDA Brimstone air-to-surface missile aboard the Eurofighter Typhoon.

The tests, which were conducted using the UK Typhoon Instrumented Production Aircraft (IPA) 6, are part of the Phase 3 Enhancement (P3E) package for the Typhoon which will also include sensor and mission system upgrades. Firing trials are scheduled for later this year.
