    Brimstone is an air-launched ground attack missile, originally developed for the British Royal Air Force. At the moment, the missiles are operated by the UK, Saudi Arabia, and Germany.

    Matra BAE Dynamics Alenia (MBDA) carried out successful tests of the Brimstone 3 precision missile system in Sweden in March, the company said in a press release.

    "Whilst enduring extreme weather conditions with temperatures below —30°C, the missile was surface launched against a pick-up truck target. All trials objectives were fully achieved with the missile proving, through a telemetry unit, full closed-loop guidance with the seeker progressing into target acquisition and track", MBDA stated.
