AIM 120D AMRAAM – THE MISSILE THAT WILL TAKE DOWN IRAN’s AIR FORCE !

September 12, 2019


Air superiority is the most important element
in deciding the outcome of modern conventional war. It is the situation when a military force
is able to conduct air operations without prohibitive interference by the opposing force. If a military doesn’t control the air tactical
maneuvers on land & sea become extremely difficult. So, it natural that major militaries in the
world have a put a lot of effort in developing a strong air force. For success in air wars not only is the fighter
jet important but the air to air missiles arming the fighter jet is also equally important. A good air to air missile is supposed to have
a decent range, maneuverability, target locking capability and platform support. A fighter having a missile with better range
will able to attack a rival without having to get into its strike envelope. The maneuverability of the missile is important
since it will not be easily shrugged off even if the targeted aircraft pulls off high G
aerial maneuvers since the missile will be able to keep up. A missile with good target locking ability
will not be easily fooled by countermeasures like jamming through Electronic Warfare. An air to air missile which is supported by
many fighter jets adds flexibility to the Air Force. AIM-120D AMRAAM or Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air
Missile will be the go to weapon for the United States Air Force. In this video Defense Updates analyses why
America’s AIM-120D AMRAAM will be able to knock down any Iranian jets? Let’s get started. This video is sponsored by War Thunder. If you are, like us, fascinated by military

sharply since Donald Trump withdrew from a 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and several
world powers. Trump administration also reinstated sanctions
on Tehran. Last month, in response undisclosed Iranian
treats, U.S moved USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group to the region. President Donald Trump had said on Friday
that the U.S. is sending 1,500 more troops to bolster the American forces in the region. The US has also blamed Iran for last month’s
attacks on oil tankers in a United Arab Emirates port. It has now come to light that the attacks
were initiated by a foreign hand who used divers on speed boats to plant mines in the
vessels. Iran has currently not been named by United
Nations ambassadors from the Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Norway who have been investigating
the attacks. Earlier, the Saudi ambassador to the UN, Abdallah
Al-Mouallimi, said Saudi Arabia also thought Iran was responsible for the sabotage. In this state, a limited or full-scale conflict
involving U.S & Iran cannot be ruled out and in that case, an aerial combat will ensue. The AIM-120 AMRAAM is a medium-range, air-to-air
missile designed to meet the requirements of the United States and several allied nations. The AIM-120 missile is faster, smaller and
lighter than its predecessor the AIM-7 Sparrow medium-range missile. It also has improved capabilities against
low-altitude targets. AMRAAM incorporates active radar seeker with
mid-course inertial navigation. This makes it less dependent on aircraft’s
fire control radar and hence multiple AMRAAM can be fired by a single aircraft simultaneously
against different targets. To improve the kill probability against a
high-value target an aircraft pilot may also decide to fire multiple AMRAAMs against the
same target in parallel. It has a blast fragmentation warhead that
gets triggered by a proximity fuse. AIM-120 AMRAAM missile is combat proven and
has been used in places like Iraq. Currently, it is operational with 18 Air Forces
in the world. The AIM-120D is the latest development of
the AMRAAM missile family designed and built by Raytheon. It includes several new enhancements for improved
performance. This includes a two-way data link, superior
navigation through GPS-enhanced Inertial Measurement Unit, much larger no escape zone and improved
high-angle off-boresight capability apart from an increase in range by 50%. The software algorithm has seen a lot of work
and has a much better capability especially in dealing with new forms of electronic attack. AIM-120D has much accurate guidance over its
whole flight envelop which improves the kill probability. It also has improved kinematics and GPS Inertial
Measurement Unit for better performance. AIM-120D’s range is thought to be more than
167 km or 105 miles. America’s Air Force consists of 4th generation
fighter like F-15, F-16, F/A-18, and 5th generation fighter F 22 Raptor & F 35 Lightning II. All these jets are capable of launching the
AIM-120D AMRAAM. So, the U.S has a lot of option in its arsenal. On paper, the Iranian Air force possesses
more than 300 combat capable aircraft, but all of them are either 3rd generation or 4th
generation once. There are around 190 fighter aircraft such
as US-made Northrop F5s, F-4 Phantom II, Grumman F-14 and Russian made Sukhoi Su-22, Sukhoi
Su-24, and MiG-29 These will be equipped mainly 2 types of Air
to Air missiles – Fakour-90 & Fatter. The Fakour-90 is based on the American AIM-54
Phoenix. It is solely deployed on Iran’s F-14 Tomcats. The missile was developed by the Iranian Army,
the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces Logistics, and the Air Force though exact details are
not available. On April 2017, Fakour-90 long-range air to
air missile was officially unveiled. On 23 July 2018, the Iranian military announced
it was now being mass produced. Fakour-90 is thought to have a range of 150
km or around 90 miles and is radar guided. It is to be noted that AIM-54 on which Fakour-90
is based on is actually a missile that was designed in the 1960s. So, it a fairly old tech by today’s standards. Also, AIM-54 has patchy history, to say the
least. On January 5, 1999, a pair of US F-14s fired
two AIM-54 at Iraqi MiG-25s southeast of Baghdad. Both AIM-54s’ rocket motors failed and neither
missile hit its target. On September 9, 1999, another US F-14 launched
an AIM-54 at an Iraqi MiG-23 that was heading south into the no-fly zone from Al Taqaddum
air base west of Baghdad. The missile missed and ultimately landed in
ground. The AIM-54 was retired by America on September
30, 2004, whereas F-14 Tomcats were retired on September 22, 2006. So, both of the platforms are basically outdated
and the U.S has moved to much more capable successors. Fatter is the other air-to-air missile deployed
by Iran. This is an IR-guided short-range one having
a range of 40 km and is based on the U.S built AIM-9 Sidewinder missile. In 2008, the missile was test launched for
the first time and in 2009 it was reported that the mass production of the missile was
started. In air to air between U.S & Iran combat, it
is most likely that the long-range missile will take precedence over short-range missiles. AIM-120 AMRAAM and Fakour-90 have a similar
same range. But these two missiles are radar guided and
hence will be dependent on the radar of the launching fighter. In this situation, America is far well placed
as the radars and guidance suit of its fighters are better when compared to F-14 Tomcats. Reliability of Fakour-90 is suspect as it
is basically reversed engineered from an old and to an extent unsuccessful missile. AIM-120 AMRAAM is far more advanced and also
will be hard to jam with electronic countermeasures, unlike the Fakour-90. When launched from F 22 & F 35, the Iranian
may not even be able to fire back with Fakour-90, as they don’t have the radar capable for
detecting stealthy jets. And jets other than F-14 Tomcats will be taken
out from stand-off distances as they have nothing to match the AIM-120 D. Keeping this in view we can assume that American
jets with AIM-120 AMRAAM will be able to knock down Iranian jets without much difficulty
in a one on one combat. Also, we need to note that the U.S has far
better availability of jets and missile when compared to Iran.

    AIM54s were pretty deadly against the Iraqi air force in Iran-Iraq war, Iraqis learned and practiced a manoeuvre with the help of France to try to beat the Tomcat radar lock by staying just within the Iranian Tomcat radar envelope and diving fast out of the 90 degree lock envelope before or after launch to break lock, ..Iranian Tomcat pilot countered by identifying such maneuver attempts by matching and counter maneuvering enemy aircrafts movements for closer engagement using AIM7s and AIM9s instead of trying to maintain BVR position to maintain or reestablish AIM54 lock on.

Logic says you look at the big picture before you assign credibility to anybodys claims. When was the last time the CORPORATE USA accused a country they already made the decision to attack and had evidence that the attack was justified? When was the last time Iran attacked another country? Israel attacked America and Saudi Arabia cuts peoples heads off and you promote a game of war so?

It can detect very small objects like micro-UAV at 85 km and shoot it down at 45 km range and regular fighters and aircrafts at 150 km and cruise missiles at 120 km.

Iranian technology is not stuck in the 1970's. They have already proven themselves in engineering. The worst thing one can do in Military planning is to underestimate the opponent.

    I don't believe the USA stand a hope in hell against Iran , not because of Iran themselves but all the countries that will defend it, the USA will be crushed and could find itself coming under attack in the USA (about time)

    It's crap against top noch aircraft.

    You are saying these are better than sam site rockets that are more agile have more power are more faster.
    Sams don't alaways hit their target and they are better.

    Look how small it is, it's pretty slow it gives the pilot time to think. If it has a good plane he can dodge it if the pilot is good enough.

    This is not better than sam misles, and good airplanes can dodge sam misles that are not that big.

    Question, why doesn't anyone make a mini EMP device to deploy as a counter measure for incoming missiles or enemy jets?

    It all comes down to tactics use by either side.. agreed that the AMRAAM could take down any Iranian Air Force jet but first the US fighter jet will have to find them behind enemy line which means that the US aircraft will be well within the Iranian misile defence system such as the Kodad or S300 batteries should Iranian play defensive strategy and use its ageing fleet of aircraft as bait to lure US pilot into engagement. The US might opt for strategic bombing campaign by using the cruise misile launch from guided destroyer to target key installation objective rather than sacrificing pilots live and avoiding any of it state of the art aircraft being shot and crash down in Iranian territory which will give great advantage and benefit for the Iranian.

    This is like loose lips sink ships, why would we tell any potential enemy how to beat us. This must be false info.

    Very interesting and informative article. Was the reference to Iranian air farce a typo?

    I don’t think we can surest say exactly what Iran has in its arsenal. They have a ton of money and are very secretive! They wouldn’t tell us if they did have better missals! We Definitely don’t want them having nukes!!!

    If AIM 120D AMRAAM is so good then why not use it as ground to air also?
