Description: The AMRAAM-ER, also known as the SL-AMRAAM-ER, is a medium range surface-to-air missile intended to defeat air breathing targets such as fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). It has been offered by Raytheon to extend the range of SL-AMRAAM missile-based air defense systems. The AMRAAM-ER may feature greater range compared with the SL-AMRAAM missile. The new missile's aerodynamic design has received influence from other key surface-to-air missiles also developed by Raytheon: the ESSM and the SM-2 Standard Missile. Externally, the AMRAAM-ER bears no resemblance to AMRAAM missile.
