  • On May 06, 2020: a partnership of Raytheon Missiles & Defense and Lockheed Martin, namely Javelin Joint Venture team, completed the first production of F-Model missile. The F-Model has multiple features such as detecting current and future armor along with blast fragmentation.

Introduction to Missiles

Missile is a guided airborne ranged weapon having the ability of self propelled flight to deliver an explosive warhead. Guidance system, flight system, warhead and engine are the four basic system components of missiles. A missile is used to carry the payload to the designated target and stabilizing fins are used to steady the flight. The guidance system is the sophisticated part of the missile as it maintains the missile in its flight path and operates as an auto pilot to avoid the fluctuations in the path. Missiles used in military are propelled by solid fuel as it can be kept ready for quick launch.
