    the entire raf typhoon and mq9 reaper ucav fleets will soon be fitted with the brimstone fire and forget missiles. f35 will also be armed with this missile in the future.

    brimstone is not only more advance and accurate, but has significantly longer range.

    even 1x raf tornado gr4 alone, fitted with brimstone missiles, is capable of destroying 16x tanks or vehicles simultaneously.

    It seems like in 2013 IAF was interested in Brimstone-II, but it won't be acquired.

    With the "Missile Autonomy Mission" launched, DRDO is looking forward to JV for a similar missile either with MBDA (Brimstone) or IAI (Nimrod) for dual seeker technology.

    Propulsion and codes could be Indian.

    Could have a mix of IIR/MMW/Laser/GPS seekers depending on the launch platform (Fixed Wing/Helo/Surface)
