    Raytheon will carry out the final certification of the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile-Extended Range (AMRAAM-ER) for Qatar, making it the first country to procure the new missile, the US company announced on 10 July.

    It was providing more detail on an announcement made the previous day when Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatar’s emir, visited the White House. A joint statement listed the Qatari Ministry of Defence’s “commitment to acquire Raytheon’s NASAM and Patriot systems” as one of several transactions that had been discussed.

    Raytheon said AMRAAM-ER certification was part of two direct commercial sales worth USD2.2 billion that also included the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and an “unspecified quantity of additional.

    Hope one of this would not end in hands of any Neo-Nazi fringe group.

    Interesting, does this mean we also get AIM-120ER as part of NASAMS-2 deal?

    With some jugaad,it could be converted into SAM. Houthi abduls took down many drones including reaper drones using iran supplied modified (probably)r27s...

    Neo-Nazis would not convert it. They would simply sell it.

    Nice, it put's it in the same league of the MR-SAM in terms of range and performance I think.
