The AGM-88 HARM (high-speed antiradiation missile) is an air-to-surface tactical missile designed to seek and destroy enemy radar-equipped air defense systems.
The AGM-88 can detect, attack and destroy a target with minimum aircrew input. The proportional guidance system that homes in on enemy radar emissions has a fixed antenna and seeker head in the missile nose. A smokeless, solid-propellant, dual-thrust rocket motor propels the missile. The F-16C has the capability to employ the AGM-88, and is the only aircraft in the current inventory to use the AGM-88.
The Defense Systems Acquisition Review Council approved the AGM-88 missile for full production in March 1983.
The Air Force equipped the F-4G Wild Weasel with the AGM-88 to increase the F-4G's lethality in electronic combat. The missile worked with the APR-47 radar attack and warning system on the aircraft.
The missile is operationally deployed throughout the Air Force and in full production as a joint U.S. Air Force-U.S. Navy project.
Function: Air-to-surface anti-radiation missile
