Sea Viper completes "toughest test"

The Sea Viper SAM, principal weapon of the Type 45 destroyer, has completed what has been called its "toughest test yet" on trials in the Mediterranean. The missile achieved a hit against a fast manoeuvring sea skimming target, though the successful missile appears to have been fired as part of a salvo (from which i assume some of the missiles missed).

Not to nitpick, but I think that would be "principal" meaning 'main' rather than "principle" meaning a rule or a standard.

Thanks Mike, any corrections are very welcome, my spelling is terrible!
