The American F-15 Eagle fighter destroyed a target in the form of a BQM-167 drone at a record distance of more than 160 kilometers. The aircraft used the AIM-120D Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) missile.
Writes about this “Lenta.ru”. It is reported that this happened during a March exercise in the Gulf of Mexico. American experts write that now US missiles in flight range are close to Russian and Chinese ones. It is noted that the flight range of the R-37M is 200 kilometers.
