Just after the Falklands war, (14 July 1982) a Harrier accidentally fired a Sidewinder while in the hover. A group of guys were clearing snow at the far end of the runway, the missile acquired the heat source and was negligently fired. Several killed and others left with life changing injuries.
Were there not tests or plans to put slammers on humvees?
Were there not sparrows on navy ships at one time? They just lost range/kinematics.
I am much much more interested in g limits maneuvering limits on shooting slammers out of the weapons bays. I don't know if that's hush hush but how much maneuvering can the rhino do and still get off a slammer?
