Raytheon To Do The Entire Weapons Suite For Typhoon!!

Following are the five weapons which will be integrated onboard Typhoon, if it wins, two of which are already on it :

1. Paveway IV --- Recently tested successfully, is more advanced than II and III.

2. Sidewinder AIM 9X Block-II---Analog, air-to-air, the Block-II is the most advanced in the sidewinder family.

3. AMRAAM---Tested in Iraq.

4. HARM--High-speed anti-radiation missile--this is a requirement in the RFP, and there are only two countries in the world which make the anti-radiation missile--USA and Russia!!

5. JSOW--Joint Stand-Off Weapon--the heaviest of them all, to go on the pylon!

No rough figure or estimate available. These can be changed/modified as per the customer needs.

HARM S ARE NOT TECHNOLOGICALLY CHALLENGING MISSILES TO MAKE PER SE, BUT IT TAKES A LOT OF ELINT TO FEED THE THREAT LIBRARIES AND TO UPDATE THEM IN REAL TIME
