HALCON, part of the Missiles & Weapons cluster within EDGE, has unveiled its HALCON AntiShip-250 (HAS-250) cruise missile at IDEX 2021. This is a UAE-designed and developed surface-to-surface missile capable of travelling at speeds of up to 0.8 Mach, with a range of over 250Km. During its terminal phase, it can fly towards its target at a sea-skimming altitude of below 5m.
Engineered to provide the highest performance, the HAS-250 utilises Global Navigation Satellite and Inertial Navigation Systems (GNSS + INS). For high accuracy targeting, it is equipped with an active/passive terminal seeker and radio altimeter.
