Israel Developing New Air-to-Air Missile
 
Israel's Rafael is currently developing an air-to-air version of its Stunner surface-to-air missile system.

The Stunner is the uppermost stage of the David's Sling anti-ballistic missile system, intended to intercept Scud missiles and similar threats deployed by Hezbollah. Unique among Western air-to-air missiles, Stunner features a dual-mode seeker with both a radar and an infra-red seeker - making it much harder to jam or evade. It also was designed for a hit-to-kill strategy, allowing it to dispense with the weight of a conventional warhead, and adding fuel and range.

This development has been rumored for almost a decade. Stunner is likely to be the most lethal long-range air-to-air missile ever deployed.

This 'Stunner"long-range air-to-air missile, could be the perfect all round air-to-air missile for the F35.
