The Raytheon AIM-120 AMRAAM - Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile, is a modern BVRAAM - Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile capable of all-weather day-and-night operations. AMRAAM serves as a follow-on to the AIM-7 Sparrow missile series. The new missile is faster, smaller, and lighter, and has improved capabilities against low-altitude targets. It also incorporates a datalink to guide the missile to a point where its active radar turns on and makes terminal intercept of the target. An inertial reference unit and micro-computer system makes the missile less dependent upon the fire-control system of the aircraft. Once the missile closes in on the target, its active radar guides it to intercept. This feature, known as "fire-and-forget", frees the aircrew from the need to further provide guidance, enabling the aircrew to aim and fire several missiles simultaneously at multiple targets and perform evasive maneuvers while the missiles guide themselves to the targets.
This kit contains all necessary parts for assembling TWO Raytheon AIM-120 AMRAAM missile miniatures under 1/18 scale. Any extra diorama accessories are not included and should be purchased separately.
