Thales has developed a 13-pound, unpowered, glide weapon that is especially suitable for application to UAVs and light attack aircraft.

Known as FFLMM (free-fall light multi-role missile), the weapon draws on many of the components developed for the powered LMM weapon that Thales is producing for the Royal Navy’s FASGW(L) requirement, but is much shorter (just 28 inches in length), as it lacks a rocket motor, and has fixed instead of folding wings.

The FFLMM is being displayed here at the Thales exhibition, as well as under the wings of the Britten Norman Defender and Beechcraft AT-6. Thales has partnered with Textron for the U.S. market, where FFLMM will be branded as the Fury.
