Wow, that missile seems very promising. Ram jet engine in a A2A missile wow!

To whom it may concern,

I am an idiot, unfortunately for the world, I have a internet connection and a fondness for beer....apologies for that.

Thank you for you patience.

 

 

Many people don't want the truth, they want constant reassurance that whatever misconception/fallacies they believe in are true..

"Already proven in earlier test firings, the unique solid fuel throttle able ducted rocket gives Meteor the ability to maintain high speed all the way to the target aircraft, making evasion virtually pointless."

 

I wouldn't call it pointless if it was fired at me!! Maybe impossible...

TorwaK It seems ram jet engine makes fog there.

I thought the ram jets don't kick on until later in the missile flight. I thought it was first normal missile propulsion and then switch to ram jets, it's that correct?

That's right. In the case of the meteor there is an integrated booster.

I'm not to well versed in what's on the drawing board, but the idea of having a constant-powered missile always seemed like a no-brainer from the time I first learned missiles rely on inertia for much of their flight. Is it only just now possible to have meaningful propulsion small enough to fit on a missile like this?

I searched but no detailed information there. Who knows maybe I'm wrong.

its right there in the article

 

The missile was rail-launched from the Gripen flying at 0.9 Mach and at an altitude of 18,000ft (5500m). Following the boost phase, the missile successfully transitioned to its ramjet operation and accelerated to its operational speed.

I think I missed it somehow, thanks for heads up.
