MD 530G attack helicopters fires Talon rockets

MD 530G attack helicopters fires Talon rockets: Raytheon's Talon laser-guided rocket has been fired from an MD 530G helicopter to demonstrate its multi-platform capability.

The small rocket, co-developed with the United Arab Emirates, needs no hardware or software modifications to the launcher or aircraft platform for any aircraft that fires 2.75-inch Hydra-70 unguided rockets using the standard M260/261 launchers.

Talon is also compatible with existing airborne and ground laser designation systems.
