Blast from the past....P-3 Orion launches an AIM-9 Sidewinder during tests of the air-to-air missile as a defense weapon for ASW aircraft

Modest Proposal.

Let's put self defense missiles (preferably AIM-260 when it comes online or AIM-9X in the short term) on our AWACS, P-8s, even a couple on transports so that they have a means to defend themselves when the next war comes along against a determined/advanced enemy.

I was monitoring a conversation GAR-9 was having and he brought up the fact that the Brits armed their Nimrods with AIM-9P to defend themselves against Argentinian aircraft shadowing them.

We should consider the same.

Convince me I'm wrong.
