Eurofighter Begins Tarus KEPD 350 Flight Testing

Airbus Defense and Space has begun flight tests on Taurus standoff precision missiles on the Instrumented Production Aircraft 7 (IPA7). 
Following the recent completion of functional ground testing, the IPA7 is now undergoing flutter tests, air data system large store interference assessment and aerodynamic data gathering, in flight tests operated by Eurofighter Project Pilot Chris Worning.

These flight testing activities are part of the Storm Shadow integration program, and concurrent testing will facilitate the future airframe integration of both the Storm Shadow and the Taurus.
