General information - Air-to-air missiles

 

An air-to-air missile is an aircraft carried missile intended to combat hostile aircraft. They can be found in several ambiguous category classification such as; short, medium and long range missiles.

 

The short range missiles are generally controlled by a homing device of an IR type and are mainly used against enemy aircraft. Medium range missiles are usually guided by a semi-active homing device. The long range missiles are guided as a rule by an active radar homing unit, combined with a command link.

 

Air-to-air missiles are today the main armament on a fighter aircraft. The pilot will receive information about hostile aircraft from the aircraft radar. The missile is fired, when several firing conditions are met, such as; range, aspect angle, identity etcetera. The missile then travels to hit in the target.
