    should have kept your radar off you brown morons

      I don't think the Mi-24 has radar unless it's one of the most recent 2019+ models, and even then I only ever saw the AESA offered as an option at some trade show event and not as a standard loadout.

      And the article supports this stating it was killed on the ground likely with a coordinate strike, not a homing strike.

      >emittercucks thinking turning off the radar is going to do anything

      INS/MMW is still gonna to dunk on yo radiating azz. See Jizzraili loiter ARMs absolutely dressing down the S300 in Armenia.

      If the Russians weren't fricking morons and could develop a halfway decent ARM or AARGM was supplied by the militerate cucks at the Sneedy Bloe admin, the entire Ukraine conflict would be turned on its head

    could we fire these at areas where nukes went off to disable the radiation?

      It got hit on the ground, however anti-radiation missiles can track pretty much anything emitting strong enough radio waves, even if the HARM is primarily intended for ground targets.
      Also it’s not like the Growler lost its radar and other equipment for using A2A missiles.

      Yes it will deactivate the atoms

      Why did you believe them for even a microsecond? The frickin' Chinese were releasing sat photos of the Eisenhower underway with no visible damage and they were still shouting that it had been sunk from the rooftops.

      >Lefties
      My uncle is a trump sucking high speed maga, and he is still saying the ship was sunk. Because of Biden. Just this morning, in fact.
      There is some new rightoid podcast/show on Facebook they all watch, and apparently it's the inbred child of Infowars and Joe Rogan.

    >“The Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike) Carrier Strike Group led pre-planned self-defense strikes into Houthi-controlled territories in Yemen,” the official told us. “This was a joint and coalition effort that struck 60 Houthi targets across 16 sites in Yemen, including anti-ship missile sites, storage facilities and command and control centers. Also destroyed was a rotary-wing aircraft; the aircraft was unmanned and not airborne at the time.”
    >The AARGM is different from its progenitor, the HARM, in a number of ways. Chief among them is that it can hit a threat radar with high-precision even if it stops emitting radiation. This means that if a radar shuts off mid-attack, the AARGM will still strike it and do so with extreme accuracy. The addition of an active millimeter-wave radar seeker even allows the AARGM to hit its target if it is fleeing from its original position.

    >This standoff precision strike capability also allows the AARGM to be used in a secondary capacity as a rapid response strike weapon against non-air defense-related targets. In other words, it can be used to quickly strike a non-radiation emitting target on the ground over long distances. In this case, something in the Navy's 'kill chain' or pre-mission intelligence spotted the Mi-24 and the AARGM was used to destroy it as it sat on the ground, using GPS/INS to make its way to the target, then homing in on it using its millimeter-wave radar seeker.

    If you actually read the article it says how:
    >“The Hind was reportedly struck on the ground, which is strange for a Growler,” The War Zone's Tyler Rogoway tweeted on May 16. “Best guess: they fired AARGM to hit coordinates, not home in on emissions, which it's capable of. It is a good time-sensitive target effector in this way"

    Why would the helicopter need radar? We can just lock onto the heli's radio.... you don't actually think Fud-Gods out inna woods with their HAM radios are safe do you?

    AARGM has an millimeter wave active radar seeker for terminal guidance. Pilot can order the missile to go to a location and then go active rather than home in on emissions.

      In the near future, all US missiles will be built around modified AMRAAM seekers. Maybe even sidewinders.

      why not? they'll probably frick off if we offer them some aid.

        These massive Mi-24s need massive maintenance. That can all be very easily found and destroyed, unless you want these monkeys playing with your bananas forever.

      Eh, it's good training for our pilots, seamen, etc and gets us live fire data on a ton of weapon systems before we get into a hot war with China here in the next decade.

      was this hind unmanned? or the F18? either way the houthi airfield full of hinds should be an insanely easy target, unless you want them close to the red sea or some shit?

    It doesn’t have to be a radar, it could be any emitting antenna, ie, comms that that Growlers were able to ID and pinpoint.

      f35 has many air kills but theyre all on drones since no one will fly against it which is better than actual air kills

    Last version of HARM has also of millimeter wave active radar seeker to accurately strike radar that turns radiation off.
