F-104S Starfighter ASA, Italian AF (AMI) - 09694

In the late 1960s, the Italian Air Force developed a more advanced version of the Starfighter, the F-104S, for use as an all-weather interceptor. The F-104S received a NASAAR R21-G with moving-target indicator (for some ability against low-level targets) and a continuous-wave illuminator for semi-active radar homing missiles, including AIM-7 Sparrow and Selenia Aspide. The missile-guidance avionics forced the deletion of the Starfighter's internal cannon. In the mid-1980s surviving F-104S aircraft were updated to ASA standard (Aggiornamento Sistemi d'Arma, or Weapon Systems Update), with a much improved, more compact Fiat R21G/M1 radar.

Selenia Aspide:
The Aspide is an Italian medium range air-to-air missile produced by Selenia (now part of Alenia). It is provided with semi-active radar-homing seeker. The missile is similar in appearance to the American AIM-7 Sparrow, but, at the moment of its introduction, the Aspide was provided with mono-impulse guide instead of the conic scan, which made it more resistant to ECM and more precise. This innovation appeared on Sparrows later with the AIM-7M version.

Because of its resemblance to the AIM-7, the Aspide has generally been classified by the non-Italian press as a Sparrow version; however, the Aspide had original electronics, warhead and a new and more powerful engine.

Aspide, in its various version, was used both in the air-to-air role, carried by Aeronautica Militare's F-104 Starfighters in the apposite versions F-104S and F-104ASA, and in the surface-to-air naval role. In the latter it has been replaced by the MBDA Aster (Italian French consortium).
