Beyond Visual Range
A BEYOND-VISUAL-RANGE MISSILE (BVR) is an air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) that is capable of engaging at ranges of 20 nmi (37 km) or beyond. This range has been achieved using dual pulse rocket motors or booster rocket motor and ramjet sustainer motor. In addition to the range capability, the missile must also be capable of tracking its target at this range or of acquiring the target in flight. Systems in which a mid-course correction is transmitted to the missile have been used.

De Havilland Vampire
The DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE was a British jet fighter developed and manufactured by the de Havilland Aircraft Company . Work on the aircraft began during the Second World War
Second World War
as a largely experimental aircraft suitable for combat that harnessed the groundbreaking innovation of jet propulsion ; it was quickly decided to opt for a single-engine, twin-boom aircraft equipped with the Halford H.1 turbojet engine (later the de Havilland Goblin). Originally ordered as an experimental aircraft only, the decision to mass-produce the aircraft as an interceptor for the Royal Air Force
Royal Air Force
(RAF) was finalised in May 1944. In 1946, the first production aircraft entered service with the RAF, only months after the conflict had come to a close. The Vampire was the second jet fighter, after the Gloster Meteor , operated by the RAF and the first to be powered by one jet engine

Air-to-air Missile
An AIR-TO-AIR MISSILE (AAM) is a missile fired from an aircraft for the purpose of destroying another aircraft. AAMs are typically powered by one or more rocket motors , usually solid fueled but sometimes liquid fueled . Ramjet engines, as used on the Meteor (missile) are emerging as propulsion that will enable future medium-range missiles to maintain higher average speed across their engagement envelope. Air-to-air missiles are broadly put in two groups. Those designed to engage opposing aircraft at ranges of less than 30 km are known as short-range or "within visual range" missiles (SRAAMs or WVRAAMs) and are sometimes called "dogfight " missiles because they are designed to optimize their agility rather than range. Most use infrared guidance and are called heat-seeking missiles

Northrop F-20 Tigershark
The NORTHROP F-20 TIGERSHARK (initially F-5G) was a privately financed light fighter , designed and built by Northrop . Its development began in 1975 as a further evolution of Northrop's F-5E Tiger II , featuring a new engine that greatly improved overall performance, and a modern avionics suite including a powerful and flexible radar . Compared with the F-5E, the F-20 was much faster, gained beyond-visual-range air-to-air capability, and had a full suite of air-to-ground modes capable of firing most U.S. weapons. With these improved capabilities, the F-20 became competitive with contemporary fighter designs such as the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
, but was much less expensive to purchase and operate. Much of the F-20's development was carried out under a US Department of Defense (DoD) project called "FX"
