The Brimstone missile is manufactured in MBDA’s factory in Lostock. It is considered to be the most accurate missile in their arsenal recently awarded a £400 million contract from the UK for its future development. In the UK’s battle against IS, 486 have been fired from jets and the US bought Reaper’s costing £100,000 or more for each missile. It is said that they will be used for the UK’s new Protector drone. The UK continues to insist that none of their airstrikes have killed of harmed citizens and the US only admit to killing around 841 whereas independent news suggests a minimum of 6,259 civilians have been killed by the coalition.
