    Both are "fire and forget" missles. The new Sidewinders and AMRAAMS are both bassed on very old designs. The AIM-9 sidewinder has gone through many versions sincs it came out, the latest is the AIM-9X. The AIM-120 is based on the AIM-7 Sparrow, but is a hell of a lot more effective than the original AIM-7's! This is an interesting pic showing the AMRAAM against the one of the newest Sparrow.



    And ohh yeah, chaff fools radar guided missles. Flares are for heat seakers.

    It is much better suited to the dogfight role than the Amraam is...playing Lock On: Modern Air Combat alot, I can tell ya that!
    You seems to experienced

    Which one is the so-called Fire and Forget missile again ?

    How advanced is the Sidewinders than Amraams ?

    Is Asraams harder to fool with chaffs than sidewinders ?

    So you'd like your question answered for a third time? The AIM-120 was not designed as a short range missle, thats what AIM-9s, ASRAAMs, Archers, etc are for.

    Well there is a short range version of this one. Maybe its this what you were referring to ?

    And its :
    The AIM-132 ASRAAM (Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile )
    is a British air-to-air missile with infra-red guidance.

    AMRAAM(Andvanced Medium Range Air to Air Missle? guessing) is a mid-long range missle, sidewiders are short range.
