Raytheon developing Peregrine missile
Raytheon has introduced a new medium-range, air-to-air weapon called the Peregrine missile with advanced firepower and manoeuvrability.
Half the size of legacy medium-range, air-to-air missiles, Peregrine has been developed to strengthen the capabilities of current fighter aircraft. It enables double the weapons loadout on a variety of fighter platforms, with a miniaturised guidance system that can detect and track targets at any time of day and in any weather condition.
Thomas Bussing, Raytheon Advanced Missile Systems vice president, said: ‘Peregrine will allow US and allied fighter pilots to carry more missiles into battle to maintain air dominance.
‘With its advanced sensor, guidance and propulsion systems packed into a much smaller airframe, this new weapon represents a significant leap forward in air-to-air missile development.’
