UK Army Unveils Sky Sabre Air Defence System 7 February, 2018

The UK Army has unveiled Sky Sabre air defence missile system on 5 February at the home of 16 Regiment Royal Artillery, Baker Barracks on Thorney Island. 

Sky Sabre is due in service in 2020 and will prove to be a step change in the UK’s air defences, taking it from short to medium range capability. This was the first time that the three principal components of the system had come together; the MBDA launcher that fires the CAMM missile, the Saab radar targeting system and the Rafael control electronics suite.
