FIM-92 Stinger: America’s Weapon

The FIM-92 is a shoulder-fired, heat-seeking, surface-to-air Weapon, also known as a Man-Portable Air Defense System Or ( Manpads ). that is designed primarily to engage low-flying targets, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and drones. In recent years, improved versions of the Weapon have been developed that offer improved capabilities against smaller unmanned aerial vehicles, which present a very real threat already and will only become more of a challenge to U.S. military operations.
