Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HW1008
Diecast Model
4-Piece AIM-9X Sidewinder Missile Set

Optional accessory for 1:72 Military Aircraft models.

Bring your 1:72 Military Aircraft to life with this detailed accessory. The AIM-9 Sidewinder is a short-range air-to-air missile which entered service with the US Navy in 1956 and subsequently was adopted by the US Air Force in 1964. The AIM-9X variant entered service in November 2003 with the USAF (lead platform is the F-15C; the USN lead platform is the F/A-18C) and is a substantial upgrade to the Sidewinder family featuring a 90 degree off-boresight capability, compatibility with helmet-mounted displays and a totally new three-dimensional thrust-vectoring control (TVC) system providing increased turn capability over traditional control surfaces. Though not part of the original requirement, AIM-9X demonstrated potential for a Lock-on After Launch capability, allowing for possible internal use for the F-35, F-22 Raptor and even in a submarine-launched configuration for use against ASW platforms. The AIM-9X has been tested for a surface attack capability, with mixed results.

Please note: This item is an accessory and does not include the aircraft model itself.
