Watch two state-of-the-art missiles destroy their targets in extreme slow motion

Lockheed Martin has released slow-motion footage of its new turreted weapon system successfully launching Hellfire and DAGR missiles.

The YouTube video demonstrates Lockheed Martin’s Long-Range Surveillance and Attack Vehicle (LRSAV) successfully carrying out ground-to-ground missile tests, held at Elgin Air Force Base in Florida last October.

During the tests the LRSAV launched a HELLFIRE missile 4 miles away from its target and the DAGR missile 2.2 miles away from the target. Both missiles locked onto and successfully hit their targets.

The LRSAV is a turret weapon system, meaning that any target in a 360-degree area around the vehicle can be targeted.

The LRSAV can also be linked with AH-64D Apache helicopters to remotely designate targets.

In the demonstration, the missiles successfully locked onto their targets both before and after launch.

The range of the LRSAV allows it to accurately engage targets from a safe standoff distance.

Here is a missile strike at full speed.
