Description: The Textron System's Fury is a lightweight, small, precision guided glide weapon designed to engage both moving and stationary target released from a variety of aircraft platforms manned or unmanned. The Fury was developed jointly between Textron Systems and Thales UK for the United States market. Its guidance system combines GPS-aided inertial navigation unit with a semi-active laser (SAL) seeker for the terminal guidance achieving 0.2-1 meter accuracy. The weapon is 27-inches long (686 millimeters), 3-inch in diameter (76 mm), weighs 12.7-lb (+6 kg) and uses a common interface for integration on multiple aircraft systems. Its warhead features a tri-mode fuzing (impact, height of burst and delay) to effectively engage light armored vehicles static or on-the-move, small boats and personnel. The Fury small size along with its rack create very little drag on the carrier aircraft with minimal impact on performance and endurance of the airplane. Textron Systems revealed the existence of Fury at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow where it was displayed on the Beechcraft AT-6 light attack aircraft.
