Taurus System and Saab Dynamics have concluded a series order with delivery of the 600th missile to the German Federal Office of Defence Technology and Procurement (BWB) for delivery to the German Air Force.

The German Luftwaffe deploys the Taurus KEPD 350 precision stand-off guided missile system on the fighter-bomber Tornado IDS (Interdictor / Strike).

The Taurus KEPD 350 is one of the most modern long-range stand-off guided missile systems.

Taurus is designed for precision strike and its Tri-Tec navigation system consists of a GPS-supported inertial navigation, a radar altimetre and an imaging IR seeker head.

To achieve the maximum effect against the target, Taurus utilises the Mephisto tandem warhead system with distance sensor, shaped charge, penetrator and PIMPF intelligent detonator system.

It is designed to combat a wide range of targets, including hard, deeply buried targets, enabling the neutralisation of high value point and area targets whilst avoiding collateral damage and without exposing launch aircraft and crews to enemy air defences.
