Indigenously developed Ra’ad operational with the Pakistan Air Force. Though initially launched from PAF Dassault Mirage IIIEA ROSE combat aircraft during testing, the missile is planned to be integrated with and launched from other PAF platforms such as the JF-17 combat aircraft.
     
Indigenously developed Ra’ad (meaning Thunder in English) with a range of 350 kms has been designed exclusively for launch from a variety of Pakistan’s air platforms, providing these with strategic stand off capacity on land and at sea.
Ra'ad is an Air-Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) having low direction probability due to stealth design and material used in its manufacturing, can carry all types of warheads and has an accuracy comparable to the country’s longer range Babur cruise missile.

AIM-9M providing all-around higher performance, improved capability against infrared countermeasures, enhanced background discrimination capability, and a reduced-smoke rocket motor.
     
Deliveries of the initial AIM-9M-1 began in 1982. The only changes from the AIM-9L to the AIM-9M were related to the Guidance Control Section (GCS).
MAR-1 is an Anti-Radiation Missile (ARM) developed by Brazil's Mectron. It was designed to replace the AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles.
MAR-1 medium-range missiles made by the Brazilian firm Mectron are tactical anti-radiation weapons whose existence was kept under wraps for many years.
     
Anti-radiation missiles” are designed to find, home in on, and destroy enemy air defense radars; they are often carried by specialist aircraft that accompany air strikes to perform the SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) mission.
MAR-1, which began development in 1998, is similar to the US-developed AGM-88 HARM and has a passive radar guidance system with a multiband option to attack land- and sea-based defensive systems.
In December 2008, Brazil’s government approved a $108 million April 2008 contract with Pakistan for 100 of Mectron’s MAR-1 anti-radiation missiles. It can reach a speed of Mach 0.5 to Mach 1.2 and uses eight pre-programmed modes of attack using previous points of reference.
