    There used to be an army forum here years ago but it got scrapped, I don't think the mods would allow it.

    Indeed I remember it, one huge flame war that made the F-35 news and discussion thread look like well meaning, rational and friendly debate in comparison!

    Indeed. I wonder how long ago it was, now that I think about it? Must be a while, I've been posting here for 10 years now! Time is starting to catch up with me!

    Funny that the Verba is entering service but we still haven't seen it.

    Here's supposedly a test of the YJ-18. Quite interesting to see it doing anti-intercept maneuvering before it hits the target.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=o3taU59z05A

    If if the sequences before show not only the YJ-83 but also the older 'Kraken' is seen during launch ... but the final hit is (at least said to be) the new YJ-18.

    I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    Raytheon conducts first live fire test of Excalibur S

    New variant guided successfully to target with laser


    PARIS, June 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a company-funded R&D initiative, Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) successfully fired the dual-mode GPS- and laser-guided Excalibur S for the first time. Although the Excalibur S was initialized with a GPS target location, it scored a direct hit on a different, or offset, target after being terminally guided with a laser designator.

    The new variant incorporates a laser spot tracker (LST) into the combat-proven Excalibur Ib projectile, the world's most precise GPS guided 155mm artillery projectile now in production for the U.S. Army and several international customers.

    "The performance of Excalibur S is very impressive and I am extremely encouraged by Raytheon's commitment to the next generation of Excalibur," said Lieutenant Colonel Josh Walsh, U.S. Army Excalibur Product Manager.

    This test validated the LST's ability to survive the forces of firing from a 155mm howitzer and then successfully hand off from the GPS to guide to a laser spot on the designated target.

    The Raytheon-funded Excalibur S builds on the proven, GPS-guided Excalibur Ib variant. The addition of the LST will enable the warfighter to attack moving targets, engage targets that have re-positioned after firing, or change the impact point to further avoid casualties and collateral damage.

    "The significance of this new capability cannot be understated," said Michelle Lohmeier, vice president of Raytheon Missile Systems' Land Warfare Systems product line. "A laser-guided variant of Excalibur gives the warfighter a precision weapon that accommodates target location errors, allows continued target attack when GPS is degraded or denied, and hit targets on the move at extended ranges."

    Excalibur S also paves the way for Excalibur Ib customers to upgrade their Excalibur Ib guidance and navigation units with GPS and LST capability. Several international customers have expressed strong interest in Excalibur S, and this same capability can also be incorporated into the 5-inch Excalibur naval variant, Excalibur N5, the company is developing.

    Raytheon is planning a live fire demonstration of the Excalibur N5 later this year.

    About Excalibur

    Excalibur is a revolutionary precision guided projectile that provides warfighters a first round effects capability in nearly any environment. Excalibur is cannon artillery's only long range true precision weapon.

    Combat proven: Nearly 750 Excalibur rounds have been fired in combat
    Precise: Excalibur consistently strikes less than two meters from a precisely-located target
    Responsive: Excalibur dramatically reduces mission response time
    Safe: Excalibur's precision practically eliminates collateral damage and has been employed within 75 meters of supported troops
    Affordable: Excalibur's first round effects reduces total mission cost and the user's logistics burden
    Growing: With Excalibur S, Raytheon adds a Laser Spot Tracker to mitigate target location error and enable engagement of moving targets
    Entering New Markets: With Excalibur N5, a five-inch naval variant, navies will be able to deliver extended range, precision naval surface fires

    Excalibur is a cooperative program between Raytheon and BAE Systems Bofors.
