The AIM-9P is either a B/E or J rebuilt or all-new and offers new motor, fuze and better reliability. It has greater engagement boundaries, enabling it to be launched farther from the target. The more maneuverable P model also incorporated improved solid-state electronics that increased reliability and maintainability.

Deliveries began in 1978. The AIM-9P-1 has an active optical target detector instead of the infrared influence fuze; the AIM-9P-2 added a reduced-smoke motor.

The most recently developed version, the AIM-9P-3, combined both the active optical target detector and the reduced-smoke motor. It also has added mechanical strengthening to the warhead as well as the guidance and control section.

The improved warhead uses new explosive material that is less sensitive to high temperature and has a longer shelf life. The AIM-9P-4 adds all-aspect capability to conversions.
