Air-to-Ground Missiles
multiple  hostile  air  targets  at  great  range.  The Phoenix  missile  was  introduced   into   the   fleet with the F-14A aircraft and AN/AWG-9 weapons control system in 1974. The AN/AWG-9 system is capable    of    long-range    tracking    of    multiple hostile   air   targets.   It   can   launch   up   to   six missiles  against  six  targets  simultaneously.  In addition   to   the   great   range   of   the   Phoenix missile,   it   has   excellent   intercept   capability against  high-speed  maneuvering  targets  at  both high and low altitudes. Characteristics of the Phoenix: Length: 13 feet Diameter: 15 inches Wing span: 3 feet Weight: 1,024 pounds Speed: More than 3,040 miles per hour Range: More than 104 nautical miles AMRAAM The advanced medium-range air-to-air missile (AMRAAM)   (fig.   20-8)   is   an   all-weather,   radar- guided, beyond-visual-range missile. It is designed to provide    launch-and-leave    capability    as    well    as multiple-target engagement capability. The AMRAAM missile, a follow-on to the Sparrow missile, is  used  by  F-14  and  F/A-18  aircraft.  It  is  faster, smaller, lighter, and better able to attack at a lower altitude than the Sparrow. With AMRAAM, the pilot can aim and fire several missiles at multiple  targets simultaneously. Characteristics of AMRAAM: Length: 12 feet Diameter: 7 inches Wing span: 13 inches Weight: 335 pounds Speed: More than 760 miles per hour Range: More than 35 nautical miles 134.57 Figure 20-8.—An AIM-120A advanced medium-range air-to-air missile (AMRAAM) being readied for loading on an F/A-18A Hornet aircraft. 20-10
