The flight test was carried out by the SARISA SRS-1A drone, showcasing the versatility and advanced capabilities of the AHX-1X. During the test, the AHX-1X was equipped with a dummy warhead provided by Thales, further validating its potential as a potent munition system.

The AHX-1X, designed by S.A.S. Technology, boasts an impressive operational range. When launched from a small drone like the SARISA, it can cover distances of over 30 kilometers, making it a formidable weapon in various scenarios. Moreover, when deployed from a MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) drone or a helicopter, the AHX-1X showcases an approximate range of over 100 kilometers, enhancing its versatility and strategic reach.

The successful flight test marks a significant milestone for S.A.S. Technology and underscores the company's commitment to advancing Greece's defense capabilities. The AIHMI AHX-1X SOLM holds great potential in bolstering the country's military strength and providing an effective deterrent against potential threats.

The Greek defense industry and global military community eagerly await further developments and subsequent trials of the AHX-1X Stand Off Loitering Munition, which promises to revolutionize modern warfare and contribute to Greece's defense readiness in the coming years.
