In November 2022, the United Kingdom delivered Brimstone 2 missiles to Ukraine. The main feature of Brimstone 2 is the combined guidance system, which uses an active seeker, as well as a semi-active laser beam guidance system. This Brimtone 2 is capable of covering a distance of up to 16 km when fired from the ground launcher, and the use of a combined homing head increases the probability of a successful hit.
