Thales today showcased the 13-pound, unpowered glide weapon to support UAVs and light attack aircraft at the on-going Farnborough Airshow.

Known as FFLMM (free-fall light multi-role missile), the weapon draws on many of the components developed for the powered LMM weapon that Thales is producing for the Royal Navy’s FASGW(L) requirement.

It is much shorter (just 28 inches in length) though, as it lacks a rocket motor, and has fixed instead of folding wings. Thales has partnered with Textron for the U.S. market, where FFLMM will be branded as the Fury.
