The Brimstone is a ground or air-launched ground attack missile developed by MBDA UK for Britain's Royal Air Force. The Brimstone missile is capable of engaging line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight targets, with a choice of engagement modes using digital targeting data provided over standard secure military networks fully interoperable with NATO.

The Mission Master XT is a robust and rugged A-UGV developed in Canada. It is designed to accompany troops in all kinds of missions, especially in challenging environments. With its extreme-terrain mobility and advanced amphibious capabilities, the Mission Master XT reliably transports heavy payloads in even the most unforgiving conditions.

The Mission Master XT never turns back. Ice, snow, sand, rocky or mountainous terrain, stretches of water – nothing can stop this A-UGV from carrying out its missions. In the most difficult of situations, it remains capable of transporting its full payload capacity of 1000kg. A continuous tire inflation system (CTIS) adjusts the A-UGV tires pressure while in motion, allowing the Mission Master XT complete mobility in extreme terrain.

The Mission Master XT is robust enough to handle platoon or company sensors and weapon systems. With such a strong A-UGV at their side, units increase their range and firepower with heavier-caliber weapons and larger optics than they would otherwise be able to carry. The Mission Master XT dependably carries out long-range, amphibious, and heavy resupply missions over rough ground.

A reliable ally in the field, the Mission Master XT is capable of traveling 750 km without refueling. An integrated battery facilitates silent watch operations for several hours at a time, extending the A-UGV’s capabilities even further.

The Mission Master XT has a length of 3.72 m, a width of 2.57 m, and a weight of 2,217 kg. It has a maximum payload of 1,000 kg. The vehicle is powered by a Diesel and hydrostatic transmission using Lithium-ion batteries for the silent watch. It can run at a maximum speed of 40 km/h. The vehicle is fully amphibious and can be propelled in the water at a maximum speed of 5 km/h. In option, the Mission Master XT can be powered by a hybrid Diesel engine and can be fitted with armor protection up to Level 2 STANAG 4569 against the firing of small arms and blast of mine explosion or IED (Improvised Explosive Device).
