The Indian Air Force Jaguar fleet is to be equipped with MBDA’s advanced short-range air-to-air missile (ASRAAM) to provide both short and within-visual-range protection.

The weapon system is an operational capability enhancement that would enable a Jaguar pilot to see, engage and kill the target before it had the chance to respond.

The missile’s ability to fire upwards to a very high altitude is ideally suited to Jaguar’s mission as the aircraft operates at a lower altitude than an in-coming threat.

Currently, the missile is fully operational on under wing and tip stations on the UK RAF’s Eurofighter Typhoon and the Australian Air Force’s F/A 18.

MBDA, along with its partners Elbit and Cobham, will provide proven reliable subsystems that offer capability enhancement for the IAF Jaguar fleet, according to India Defence.
