THREE SUCCESSFUL LIVE FIRINGS OF HUGHES AGM-56 Maverick missiles were conducted from a Kaman SH-2G Super Seasprite at the US Army's Yuma, Arizona, proving grounds on 14-15 February. The firings were conducted to document the SH-2G's air-to-ground missile capability in support of Kaman's international marketing efforts. Attending the demonstration were observers from New Zealand, Australia and the US Navy. The SH-2G is one of two aircraft on the shortlist to meet the Royal New Zealand Navy's maritime-helicopter requirement. Best and final offers were due in late February.
