Abstract : This article provides a brief history of the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) program to include its concept, need, capabilities, and a comparison against the AIM-7M. Also, a hypothetical combat scenario is provided to illustrate both the optimum use of AMRAAM and the potential problem areas that could limit its successful employment. Furthermore, the article suggests that support personnel and systems, as well as enhanced tactical training programs, can contribute to the effective employment of AMRAAM in combat. The article is written for the general military reader rather than just the 'tactical world.'
