Pilots’ Worst Enemies: U.S Deadliest Anti-Aircraft Weapons
The Humvee Avenger is a modified form of the M1037 shelter carrier Humvee. It is a short-range mobile anti-aircraft defense platform utilized by the United States Army, Taiwanese Army and the Egyptian Army. It is a relatively cost-effective system using the existing HUMVEE chassis, retaining most of the type’s capabilities, while fielding the proven Stinger missile system. A typical Avenger crew constitutes a driver and the turret operator/gunner.

The MIM-104 “Patriot” air defense missile system became a household name when it appeared on the global stage during the 1991 Gulf War. It was used in defense of Israel and Saudi Arabia from incoming Iraqi SCUDS aimed at civilian quarters. Initial reports deemed an interception success rate nearing 100% which popularized the system as one of the most effective Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) systems anywhere in the world. However, it was later found that the missiles managed a success rate closer to 40% and lower which led to several major upgrades in the line. Today, the Patriot is regarded as a vastly improved SAM system and has been taken on by many U.S. allies including Israel, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.
