The FMRAAM (Future Medium Range Air to Air Missile), was a modified ramjet powered version of the Hughes (now Raytheon) AIM-120 AMRAAM Beyond Visual Range (BVR) air-to-air missile that was conceived during the mid-1990s to fulfill British requirements for a new longer range missile to use in place of the AMRAAM on their new Eurofighter Typhoon fighter. It competed with and lost to the Meteor (missile), thus never reaching production.
