PAF is set to acquire PL-15 long range Air-to-air missile. PL-15 boasts a range in excess of 200km, exceeding the range of Meteor and all other AAMs currently in region. PL-15 has a next-generation AESA seeker, allowing it to withstand intense EW and maintain lock. PL-15 will allow JF-17 to out-range all opponents it is likely to face and project credible threat against Meteor-armed aircraft. Rafale’s longest-range AAM is Meteor, with range in excess of 100km. The key feature of Meteor is it’s ‘ramjet’ engine, allowing the missile to maintain high kinetic energy even in terminal phase.
