HC Deb 15 November 1977 vol 939 c201W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the recent Sea Wolk test firings carried out off the coast of the United States of America.

Dr. Gilbert

To display the GWS25/Seawolf's unique capability of automatic detection, threat evaluation, acquisition and tracking of very small supersonic targets, HMS "Penelope" gave a demonstration to senior American and Canadian officials during a visit last month to Norfolk, Virginia. The demonstration included a series of missile firings, and achieved a high success rate for a system undergoing development.
