I'd love to see Meteor after the Japanese get done with it become our new standard AAM personally.

Zaph, are there any others in particular? (Other than the Meteor)



Yes there was an idea floated a while back about using a PAC-3 (MIM-104F) as an a2a missile. Its about half the weight of a Standard so you could carry more but it would have alot less range

I'm assuming that a THAAD could also be modified and given its Mach 8 speed it would cover a ton of distance quickly

The Meteor is such a filthy piece of engineering.

The XASM-3 also fits that category, it would be something fantastic with a booster stage, like a carrier-killing Navajo...

And it'll be interesting to see if the idea of an 'endoatmospheric kinetic kill vehicle' gains any traction. A guided APFSDS-style kill stage that closes at Mach 8-10 would be God's own unevadable kill round.
