Subject: Italian Carrier Fires Two Aster Missiles in Test

h**p://geneva-globaldefence.blogspot.com/2011/05/italian-carrier-fires-two-aster.html Monday, May 30, 2011 (...) MBDA announces two successful launches made on May 18th and 19th to demonstrate the effectiveness of its Aster missiles. Both launches were from the Italian Navy's Cavour carrier in the Poligono Interforze di Salto di Quirra (PISQ) and were made with the assistance of MBDA. (...) In both trials, the threat was simulated using a MIRACH aerial target, configured as a missile. Both launches were entirely successful and the Aster missiles completed their tasks as required. Antoine Bouvier, CEO of MBDA, announced: ?These successful launches are further proof of MBDA's technical capacities". So , this is the Nth successful "fire and hit" test of ASTER . I am glad to see that the system works and as been working flawlessly since day one . I don 't really know how it compares to systems like AEGIS , but some European boats have some long sea to air teeth .
