It is reported that Raytheon Missiles & Defense has completed a series of tests of the medium-range air-to-air missile. We are talking about a version of the tool called F3R (from Form, Fit and Function Refresh).
According to our foreign colleagues, the novelty will be equipped with an “updated guidance section”, while it will also be optimized for high-class air battles. And they, according to journalists, will arise “if the United States and its allies ever enter the war with China.”
Another improvement in the fresh version of the rocket was the introduction of the System Improvement Program (SIP) 3F.
According to reports, the product was tested at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. The event was attended by representatives of the United States Air Force (Air Force).
