Launched from from an F/A-18F Super Hornet multirole combat aircraft, the Flight Test Vehicle (FTV) event was conducted using a telemetry round, without a warhead. The USN said the live fire test successfully demonstrated the long-range capability of the missile’s new design, although the altitude and range of the shot was not disclosed.
