Description: The R-27, also known as AA-10 Alamo by Western intelligence, is a family of medium range air-to-air missiles originally designed to fit the last generation of Soviet Air Force air defense fighter aircraft such as Mig-23, Mig-29 and Su-27 deployed in the 1980s. Their purpose is to engage a variety of airborne targets day/night in all weather conditions in the front and rear hemisphere in heavy clutter environments. It features a modular design architecture to accommodate a variety of seekers and propulsion systems for extended range. The R-27 missile variants are fitted with a proximity and target impact fuze and a 39 kg rod-type warhead. The R-27 missile family has been assigned as the Soviet counterpart to the United States AIM-7 Sparrow but the R-27 enjoys more range and more flexibility. The basic R-27 missile achieved initial operational capability in 1982 with the Soviet Air Force.
The R-27P1 is a fire and forget, medium range, air-to-air missile with passive radar homing head intended to engage radio-emitting airborne threats in the front hemisphere only. It is powered by a fixed-thrust solid-fuel engine delivering a maximum range of 72 kilometers. The R-27P1 missile has been provided to the Mig-29 and Su-27 fighter aircraft.
