Slammer!

I’m busy with social obligations today. So here’s a video. The AIM-120 AMRAAM entered service just too late for use in Desert Storm. But it didn’t take long before it made its combat debut, in use over Iraq enforcing the No Fly Zone imposed by the cease fire terms. An Iraqi MiG-25 darted across the line, and was rather promptly smacked by an F-16.

  1. Very cool vid. And, unlike Goose and Mav, I don’t seem to have the urge to punch either of these guys in the windpipe.
