    I know about R77. What else?

    Pakistan uses at least two types. The AIM-120 and SD-10.

    So i am expecting India uses more than two types?

    Russia R-27 Semi-active BVRAAM.

    French MICA for their Mirage 2000. But its a in between WVRAAM/BVRAAM so its performance for BVRAAM is mediocre.

    MICA is rubbish.
    It cannot operate above 9000 meters

    Even French drop Mica and switch to Meteor. But during Kargil War, MICA missile is the one that keeps PAF at bay as PAF F-16 has not any BVRAAM in its inventory.

    But PAF has no BVRAAM during that time. If PAF makes rash move to attack IAF, it will be at disadvantage.

    Not commission yet. The missile is just like their LCA. Keep delay and delay. Even enter service, it will take a long time for it to mature.

    R77 RVV AE, R27ET/ER, Derby, Mica IR/RF,
    You are confusing VL- Mica's altitude and range with air launched Mica. There is no limitation for any 3+ gen missile to be launched from max service ceiling of the aircraft.

    Meteor will be used on Rafale in future, nothing for now.

    They wanted ability to fire meteor from Tejas MK1 or 2 as well but they chose Israeli avionics so meteor can't be used on israeli avionics.

    I suspect israeliz will offer them something of their own making in a few years.

    Till that time comes we don't have to disclose any missiles others than SD-10A, SD-10B AND SD-10C

    F-22 uses AIM-120C and AIM-120D same as F-16 C/D

    R-77, R-23 and the Mica which has recently come online.
    indian Account general 2014(correction in year needed) reports showed the R-77 stock having shelflife and reliability issues which has led them to prefer the R-23 due to their familiarity with it

    R-77M or K-77m with range of more than 150 km but less than 200 kms is in design phase for use on Sukhoi Su-57 of Russian Air Force will take a few years to finalize.

    Main problem K-77m has is its weight its too heavy to maneuver so its only useful for linear non High G flying targets like tankers refulers or awacs aircraft.
