  • Latest R-77 missile variant, comparison with AMRAAM?

    So we're not talking about R-77 or RVV-AE but about R-77-1 or RVV-SD.

    Is there any additional info past what the manufacturer's page offers? Seeing how it's a very new missile, development of which ended just a few years ago, it should be quite potent.

    But potent how much, compared to late model amraams?

      No one knows, both because the paper capabilities are restricted and because the actual performance is dependent upon particular operational circumstances.

      A better pilot, better supported by accompanying assets and with a better position will tend to clobber the opposition even where the latter had a 'paper' advantage.
      History is not tragedy; to understand historical reality, it is sometimes better to not know the end of the story.
