The Sidewinder is a battle-proven, close-range missile that has been in
production for more than thirty years. The AIM-9P is the best of the second-
generation Sidewinders, but is outdated compared with the -9M and the -9R.
The AIM-9P can only acquire its target from rear hemisphere, where it has an
unobstructed view of the target's engines. Still, under good launch
conditions, the -9P is a capable weapon.
