Textron Systems has successfully tested the Fury lightweight precision-guided glide munition against moving targets at Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona, marking the completion of the weapon's development.

Fury underwent 13 test flights, accumulating a total of 23.8 flight hours between captive carriage, survey flights and ten weapon releases from a UAS.

Two tests were conducted from Textron’s Shadow UAS at an altitude of 8,000ft and a 1.5km standoff distance against a moving target. Both munitions were successful in hitting the target.
