In the 1991 Gulf War, the Allied forces tricked the Iraqi air defenses by first launching the BQM-74 Drones. As soon as the Iraqis turned on their radars to engage them, the Allies SEAD planes, which were following the drones, armed with AGM-88 HARMs launched at them. This is how the Iraqi AD was t...

Given high missile speeds and the relatively short distance (25 km), the enemy aircraft will have seconds to react and onboard DF systems will not be able to cue the ARM missiles in time.

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

Thats actually not completely true. Most active missiles with active seekers need midcourse guidance. The ground radar is much bigger, more powerful, more jam resistant and has a wider field of view than the active seeker in any missile. Most missiles with active seekers have a lock on range ~10-20...

Semi-radar seekers/passive ones require target illumination by an external source. While Active seekers dont really need target illumination done by external radars.Once the target is detected and missile is fired in the way,the active seeker homes onto the target using its on-board radar. ok if ac...
