These are the new resin AIM-120 AMRAAM Missiles from Zactomodels.  The AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile, or AMRAAM (pronounced AM-ram), is an American beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) capable of all-weather day-and-night operations. Designed with a 7-inch (180mm) diameter form-and-fit factor, and employing active transmit-receive radar guidance instead of semi-active receive-only radar guidance, it has the advantage of being a fire-and-forget weapon when compared to the previous generation Sparrow missiles. When an AMRAAM missile is launched, NATO pilots use the brevity code Fox Three. [Wikipedia]

These have been in operation with 33 countries during it's 30 year service life.  It has been credited with 10 air to air kills and achieved it's first success in battle win 1992 when an USAF F-16D shot down an Iraqi MiG-25 that violated the southern no-fly-zone

Each set includes 2 complete missiles.  Also included are optional exhausts and nosecones for training versions (CATM) which I appreciate very much because it gives modelers more options. 

Zactomodels does combine shipping if you order more than 1 product and you can check their website for instructions on how to do this.

Detail is of course done to a very high level we have always enjoyed from Zactomodels.

These new resin AIM-120 AMRAAM Missiles from Zactomodels give you the ability to add highly accurate AIM-120 AMRAAM Missiles to your latest jet.  Chris at Zactomodels is a great guy to deal with and you can shop with confidence.
