I think the word “gun” is a coverup, because US is not officially leave INF yet. I believe that weapon is more like a rocket or ballistic missile that can be dispensed in massive quantity, acting like gun artillery barrages but with IRBM range. Could this be some sort of hypersonic MLRS? And how expendable it is?

French Navy Rafale M Fires MBDA METEOR BVRAAM for the 1st Time

quote:

The French Ministry of the Armed Forces announced that a French Navy (Marine Nationale) Rafale M fighter fired a METEOR air to air missile for the first time on 13 February 2019.
...
The French Navy fighter used for the test was highly likely the (for now unique) Rafale M F-3R aircraft which was delivered in December 2018. F-3R is the latest standard of the Rafale, bringing a number of new capabilities including the integration of the METEOR missile.

A couple of operational tidbits in this one on F-35s at Red Flag 19-1:

https://theaviationist.com/2019/02/16/the-first-reports-of-how-the-f-35-strutted-its-stuff-in-dogfights-against-aggressors-at-red-flag-are-starting-to-emerge/

"when they have expended all their ordnance, Lightning II pilots can support the rest of the team by collecting live battlefield data and passing it to older 4th generation fighters via Link-16."

MBDA unveils the SPIMM Self-Protection Integrated Mistral Module

quote:

At NAVDEX 2019, MBDA unveiled the SPIMM (Self-Protection Integrated Mistral Module), an all-in-one air defence module based on the SIMBAD-RC system and designed to equip ships of all types, particularly those without a combat system (such as supply ships).

The SPIMM module consists of a SIMBAD-RC automated naval turret equipped with two ready-to-fire Mistral missiles and a 360° infrared panoramic system to detect and track air and surface threats. The system is entirely controlled by two operators located in a shelter inside the module, which is also used to store four additional missiles. This ISO standard “all-in-one” module, 10 feet long and weighing some 7 tons, can be easily positioned on the deck of a ship using a crane, and requires just a standard electrical connection.
