MOSCOW - Russia has conducted another missile strike on Islamic State targets. Russian warships in the eastern Mediterranean Sea fired six missiles on June 23.

The warships involved in this attack are the Admiral Essen and Admiral Grigorovich frigates and the Krasnodar submarine. These warships used the Kalibr cruise missile in this mission. The strike reportedly hit Islamic State command centers and weapons depots in Hama province of Syria.

PARIS - DCNS has just performed a qualification firing of the F21 torpedo as part of the Artemis program led by the DGA (Direction Generale de l'Armement). The DGA aims to equip all French Navy nuclear submarines with this heavy torpedo, the highest performing one of its generation.

This qualification firing was performed under the authority of the DGA in a secured maritime area. It was preceded by about twenty industrial sea trials on prototypes from DCNS's test vessel Pegase and COMEX's vessel JANUS, as well as from submarines.

This qualification firing, which was conducted off the Var coast, builds in particular on firings since the end of 2016. With the completion of these milestones, the Artemis program has now entered its final development phase.

Artémis Programme Director for DCNS Franck Dostal explains: "The firing was performed in accordance with the test procedure and communications with the torpedo were operational throughout the exercise. The data recorded in real time could retrace the entire mission, thus validating the achievement of all the goals."

The F21 heavy torpedo was designed to neutralize enemy vessels and submarines. With a range in excess of 50km and a speed greater than 50 knots, the F21 is foreseen for operation not only in deep waters but above all in coastal areas with high levels of noise and dense shipping. Thanks to its a significant computing power that allows for exceptional real-time processing capacities, the F21 torpedo benefits from an advanced mission system and extended autonomy. These technical characteristics considerably widen its possibilities for tactical use with an unequalled target discrimination capacity, including in very challenging environments.

It will gradually equip all French submarines, starting in 2018.

The contract includes the development and delivery of about one hundred F21 torpedoes and their integration into French submarines.

The Brazilian Navy has also selected the F21 to equip its submarines.

BERLIN - A court in Germany is blocking the planned procurement of an armed unmanned air vehicle (UAV). Germany wants to provide this capability to its armed forces.

A state court in Düsseldorf stopped plans to lease "Heron TP" UAVs from Israel. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) builds this system and is teamed with Airbus to meet this requirement. This bid defeated a rival offering from General Atomics.

General Atomics is suing saying its system is less expensive and offers better performance. The company says it was not fairly treated by the German government. The court did not agree, but General Atomics is appealing and this is delaying the UAV deal.

Eventually, Germany wants to procure a locally made UAV. The proposed lease of the Israeli UAVs is to end in 2025.
