AIM-9X Sidewinder

AIM-9 Sidewinder

The AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missile entered service in 1956, and its more modern variants continue to be used by many western military powers. In 2015 the US State Department approved a $47 million Foreign Military Sales (FMS) request to Indonesia for AIM-9X-2 Sidewinder Missiles and associated equipment, parts and logistical support. Indonesia ordered 14 AIM-9X sidewinder missiles in 2017, which were delivered in 2018.
