According to Russell Jamieson, MBDA Chief Engineer, “The trial further proves Brimstone’s fully flexible platform approach, providing a ‘one missile, multiple platform’ capability, for surface launch, fast jet, remotely piloted air systems (RPAS), attack helicopter, land and maritime platforms, all utilizing the same missile.”
