SABER Munition Flight Test
MBDA Inc's SABER munition performs a successful test flight in August of 2013. With a launch weight of 5.9kg (13lb), the Diamond Back wingkit-equipped bomb carries a blast/fragmentation warhead and provides a 360° attack capability, MBDA says. It could be used to arm systems such as the AAI RQ-7 Shadow flown by the US Army and US Marine Corps, the company believes.
