Description: The AIM-9 missile is a supersonic, heat-guided, air-to-air missile carried by most western fighter aircraft. It was introduced in 1956 (AIM-9B). This missile is used for self-defense purposes in close range combat situation, less than 20 kilometers, also known as dogfight. Once the AIM-9 has been launched its seeker follows the heat signature of the enemy's aircraft engines. Current AIM-9 blast fragmentation warhead detonates by proximity. The AIM-9 missiles have been delivered to more than 40 countries.

The AIM-9M Sidewinder missile was introduced in 1983. It retains all-aspect capability of the L model but providing higher performance. The M model has improved defense against IR countermeasures, enhanced background discrimination capability, and a reduced smoke rocket motor.
