The AA-19 Long Range Active Radar Homing Missile's guidance system enables for target acquisition at long range and faster navigational updates once the missile is in-flight. The AA-19 can also be deployed in ‘dumb-fire’ mode—releasing the weapon before a lock is achieved—making it an exceptional air-to ground weapon. Although ground vehicles and troops don’t produce enough radar signatures to enable a target-lock, the AA-19 can still acquire all aircraft and heavy turrets.
