Marine aviators complete operational assessment of advanced Precision Kill Weapon System

CHINA LAKE, Calif., 10 Feb. 2010. U.S. Marine Corps aviators have completed their operational assessment of BAE Systems' Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System, which scored eight direct hits in eight shots over the past two weeks. The operational assessment provides Marine aviators the opportunity to "test drive" the system before it is deployed and to confirm that the laser-guided, 2.75-inch rocket will meet their needs in combat.
