Harris said Tuesday it will deliver four internal bay-compatible SCORPION lightweight ejection rack units for each of the weapon bays of two U.K. F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

“The MBDA SPEAR weapon, combined with our delivery system, offers an advanced precision strike capability for existing aircraft and future fifth-generation air platforms, both manned and unmanned,” said Ed Zoiss, president of Harris’ electronic systems business unit.
