AMRAAM Works From the Ground: Raytheon recently performed three successful tests of the advanced medium-range air-to-air missile in conjunction with USAF and the Spanish Army at Sweden’s missile test range in Vidsel, Sweden. The surface-launched AMRAAM hit the target drone, according to a Raytheon statement. Raytheon officials also said two additional shots demonstrated a new command destruct/self destruct capability that allows the precision weapon to engage cruise missile and UAV threats while decreasing collateral damage.
