Q: How do I search by system?

A: To perform a search By System, click on the By System link at the top of the page. This will take you to the Advanced Missile Search page, which takes you through a search step-by-step:


Search Options:

Simply choose whether you want the Worldwide Missiles™ search to match "Any" or "All" of your conditions. (Remember, the more restrictive your search parameters, the fewer matches)


Type:

Choose one type from the options available on the drop-down list. (The selection from this drop-down list will affect the next two parameters accordingly)


Modifier:

Choose the modifier that suits your search needs.


Value:

Enter the Value you're searching for that fits within the Type and Modifier parameters you have set, then click the Search button. For example – the search for: Cross Reference/Name > Contains > patriot will return the record for "Patriot MIM-104"


More:

If your search requires a bit more information to narrow the findings, simply enter your first Type, Modifier (if applicable), and Value, then click on the More button. A second row of Type, Modifier (if applicable), and Value will appear. This can be replicated as many times as necessary.

For example - the search for Using Nation > Israel and Mission > Air Defense returns a list of 10 missiles.
