The Theater-Wide Air-to-Air Missile-One is a missle designed not for fighters, but for tankers, bombers, and command and control aircraft. It is designed for extreme ranges, allowing the aircraft to defend its self without the need for fighters, eleminating the need for an escort, reducing the cost of operating a bomber/tanker/C&C aircraft.


-1st Stage-
Range: 600 nautical miles-690.5 miles-1,111 kilometers
Maximum Speed: Mach 2
Engine: Pulse Detonation Engine
Extra: The radar on the attached ASRAAM missle will pick up targets; one could fire this missle and let it find its own targets, however far off of the radar they may be. For command and control aircraft, however, this is not such a problem. This stage is essentialy a modified Tomahawk missle.

The missile is too slow, F-15s and MiG 25s can go mach 2.5. They can outrun the missile and even slower planes could outrun it. The speed gap is too small

Captain James Tiberius Kirk,

Though the aircraft can go mach 2.5, I hardly call going .5 mach (612 kms or 380 mph) too slow of a speed differance, especialy when the missle is comming towards you and it is highly manueverable. This isn't a SAM. Its an AAM.
