L-3 Wescam Completes MD540 Flight Demos for MX Series
Flight tests featured an MD540 with the MX-10 system firing an FN HMP 400.50 cal machine gun and an MD500E using the MX-10D to fire an M134 mini-gun. The MX-10D, MX-15D and MX-25D were integrated and tested two weapon control systems from an MD500E and a Cessna 208 Caravan. Additionally, the MX-25D shot two Hellfire missiles from a Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow and the MX-RSTA was demonstrated in environmental conditions similar to those in Afghanistan.
