Footage of successful first Brimstone missile firing from Eurofighter Typhoon as capability enhancements continue

IPA6 Brimstone firing

Condition 1

Footage has been released of the first live firing of MBDA’s Brimstone air-to-surface missile from a Eurofighter Typhoon. The successful firing took place in July 2017 as part of significant package of work to enhance the capability of the aircraft.
The ongoing trials, being conducted using the IPA (Instrumented Production Aircraft) 6 Typhoon, based out of BAE Systems’ Military Air & Information site at Warton, Lancashire, UK, are part of work to integrate the Phase 3 Enhancement (P3E) package for Eurofighter Typhoon, which will also deliver further weapons integration and mission system upgrades.

The P3E package forms part of Project Centurion – the programme to ensure a smooth transition of Tornado GR4 capabilities on to Eurofighter Typhoon for the Royal Air Force.
In total, nine live firings and nine jettison trials will be carried out over coming months, with support from the UK Ministry of Defence, MBDA, QinetiQ, Eurofighter GmbH and the Eurofighter Partner Companies – Airbus and Leonardo.
