FRENCH NAVY QUALIFIES MBDA'S EXOCET AM39 ON RAFALE

On the 20th September afternoon, the French Navy has performed an operational evaluation firing of an Exocet AM39 from the Rafale M27. The firing conditions were fully representative of an operational mission.

The aircraft, armed with the Exocet AM39 missile, has been catapulted from the deck of the Charles-de-Gaulle carrier and landed on the same deck one hour and half later. The success of this firing is a step further in the qualification of both the aircraft and the missile. It marks the end of the military experimentations and the start of the missile operational life.
