Description: The K-37M, RVV-BD or AA-13 Arrow western designation, is a long-range air-to-air missile being developed for the Mig-31BM interceptor. The K-37M seems to be a successor or leverage some technology from the R-37 air-to-air missile developed by the Soviet Union for the Mig-31M in the 1980s as a replacement for the R-33 missile. As of summer 2010 the missile system program was still in the development phase as the primary weapon for the Mig-31BM aircraft. The Russian reported that the K-37M underwent first firing tests in early 2012. The R-37M designation will apply when the new long-range air-to-air missile enters operational service with the Russian Air Force. The maximum range of this new air-to-air missile is roughly 280 kilometers.
