    ~ Inert AIM-9 Air To Air Sidewinder Missile ~


    Given the short length & short nose this is the very eary earlier 'AIM-9B' variant, it is not a practice 'round' as it has the clamps & proximity fuse ( the clear band). It used to be on display at Duxford and prior to that, an RAF mess display piece.

    It comes with a basic wooden display stand.

    A very impressive display piece.

    ~ Condition ~

    The missile is in great display condition, very clean with some paint chips.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The Sidewinder measures 2.635 metres (8 foot 8 inches) in length.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is approximately £100 due to the weight. The missle can also be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

    ~ Sidewinder Info From Wikipedia ~

    The AIM-9 Sidewinder is a short-range air-to-air missile developed by the United States Navy in the 1950s. Entering service in 1956, variants and upgrades remain in active service with many air forces after five decades. The United States Air Force purchased the Sidewinder after the missile was developed by the United States Navy at China Lake, California.

    The majority of Sidewinder variants utilize infrared homing for guidance; the AIM-9C variant used semi-active radar homing and served as the basis of the AGM-122 Sidearm anti-radar missile. The Sidewinder is the most widely used missile in the West, with more than 110,000 missiles produced for the U.S. and 27 other nations, of which perhaps one percent have been used in combat. It has been built under license by some other nations including Sweden. The AIM-9 is one of the oldest, least expensive, and most successful air-to-air missiles, with an estimated 270 aircraft kills in its history of use.

    The missile was designed to be simple to upgrade. It has been said[by whom?] that the design goals for the original Sidewinder were to produce a reliable and effective missile with the "electronic complexity of a table model radio and the mechanical complexity of a washing machine"?goals which were well accomplished in the early missiles. The United States Navy hosted a 50th anniversary celebration of its existence in 2002. Boeing won a contract in March 2010 to support Sidewinder operations through 2055, guaranteeing that the weapons system will remain in operation until at least that date. Air Force Spokeswoman Stephanie Powell noted that due to its relative low cost, versatility, and reliability it is "very possible that the Sidewinder will remain in Air Force inventories through the late 21st century."
