Raytheon's Griffin® missile showcases multiple capabilities

The Griffin® missile is a multi-platform, multi-service weapon that has a proven track record for successful rapid integration on land, sea and air platforms.

It is available in two variants: Griffin A, which is an aft-eject missile and Griffin B, which is a forward-firing missile. Raytheon continues to evaluate additional upgrades to Griffin that enables the warfighter.
