Yeah I think he mixed up the names. ~ 100 Km for Gokdogan and ~ 20 Km for Bozdogan.
The new preference are the 'Peregrin' missile. More range, agile and much smaller.If Gökdoğan Fox-2 matches AIM-120B in range, then it is the longest ranged WVR missile in existence. Longer than the Sidewinders, longer than the MICA.
If its high off-boresight capabilities are on par with AIM-9X's, then it would be one hell of a beast
Bro, AIM-120B is 50km. MICA is 60km.
I got the 120B's range info from this site:The effective range of Bozdoğan approaches AIM-120B there is no error in his tweet. Bozdoğan(140kg) has an effective range of around 35 km. AIM-120B(152kg) has an operational range of 50km. There is not a single example where AIM-120B hit a target 50km away.
Ballistic range(useless)>Operational range(useless)>Effective range>NEZ (No escape zone)
The longest-range kill ever recorded with an AIM-120C5/C7 is only 45km (Turkish F-16 downed Syrian L-39 Albatros). AIM-120C5/C7 has an operational range of around 100km.
Bro, it could be that.I got the 120B's range info from this site:
ΑΙΜ-120 B, C-5, C-7 (ΑΜRΑΑΜ) - Hellenic Air ForceThe official Hellenic Air Force websitewww.haf.gr
Serves me right. I won't use this kind of unreliable sources ever again
35 nautical mile is 64 something kilometers. Shouldn't make that much of a difference.But the thing is, for IIR missile like bozdogan I am not sure of the seeker would survive the heating beyond 60km.
It is just exhausting to see, how long these systems can takes from first test firing to reach combat readiness and active deployment.
Hoping to see Atmaca deployed on BN ships in the near future.
Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir announced that the unit price of the GÖKDOĞAN Missile is over 1 million dollars.
For US Air force yes, but when they export it they charge 3/4 millions or whatever they like.So more or less the price of an AMRAAM.
Excluding the support equipment and further training, should be about 2 mil a piece?a possible sale of 145 AIM-120C-7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM), 10 missile guidance sections, and 40 LAU-129 launchers, containers, support equipment, spare and repair parts, integration activities, publications and technical documentation, test equipment, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor logistics, engineering and technical support, and other related elements or logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $320 million.
Vympel R-27ET? (Effective kill range: Up to 55 km head-on, up to 12.5 tail-on. Maximum range: +100 km. Maximum allowed vertical separation: 12 km.) Infrared mode can be activated at the visible contact stage.Bro, it could be that.
But the thing is, for IIR missile like bozdogan I am not sure of the seeker would survive the heating beyond 60km. For example, MICA RF has range up to 80km but IIR variant's range limited to 60km because of its seeker.
Anyway, 50/60km would an insane range for gokdogan already.
