Like the ASRAAM really then. The have pretty much the same range of around 50km and the ASRAAM can push Mach 4 just like MICA.

MICA does have the advantage of thrust vectoring but it's also heavier than ASRAAM, mind you MICA can act as another sensor which is a pretty nice feature. ASRAAM also has a nifty little feature too, where it can target specific parts of the enemy aircraft like the cockpit.

Granted there is no Radar version of ASRAAM but who needs it when you have Meteor :twisted:

Thats why CAAM and CAAM-ER are being developed :D (both Rad or IR)

Plus the Rafael loses big when it comes down to Radar and detection ranges.
