Description: MIM-23 hawk is a medium-range, supersonic surface-to-air missile (SAM) developed by Raytheon to be used on the Hawk air defense system. Developed in the 1950s this missile has been designed to counter airborne threats such as fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. MIM-23 has been sold to allied nations around the globe totaling more than 37,000 missiles. MIM-23B is an upgraded version of MIM-23 missile in service with the Armed Forces of the United States, Republic of Korea and Kuwait.

Since its entry into service in 1962, Hawk missile system has been deployed in several conflicts including the Gulf War. Apparently, Hawk missile and its air defense system are obsolete. The United States, Germany and Italy are working on MEADS (Medium Extended Air Defense System) as a replacement for Hawk.
