Don't we all wish that were true, even AWAC’s can be shot down by missiles there is no magical ECM systems that can protect you 100% of the time.
Most fighter jets have flares and some radar jamming systems however new modern missiles are getting harder and harder to stop, so as of now if one missile doesn't get you the second one will.
None guided missile? Do you men like a fire and forget missile or what?

I was part of the AWACS discussion you talked about. The AWACS has great ECM and chaff to counter incomming radar guided missiles and flares to counter IR missiles. It has ECCM measures to defeat other jammers. The problem with attacking an AWACS is that you have to get close enough to it to fire at it. The AWACS will see you a long time before you see it and will vector fighters to intercept the incoming aircraft before they can fire at it.
And do you plan to fly directly behind an AWAC’s and fire this missile hoping it hits something? Your unguided missile would not work against aircraft.
