The 21 September first guided launch of a Raytheon AIM-120C AMRAAM medium-range air-to-air missile from the Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor has been judged a "hit" by the US Air Force. Flying at subsonic speed and around 40,000ft (12,200m), aircraft 4005 launched an instrumented test missile in a beyond-visual-range, head-on engagement against a subscale target drone.
