    i am just curious because it seems microwave weapons are being used to destroy incoming air to air missiles than minauture missile self defense because those missiles just blew up, I am curious as to what aerial EW system did that which they have advertised and i think its the one on the middle in that picture.

    No such weapon was used.

    Air defence missiles fly very fast. For such an airborne system to find the missile, and burn it with micro waves it is impossible.

    Radar are sending strong signals and they can at best burn your testicules if you are in front of the plane on the ground.

    EW just jamm the frequency to create fake targets or make impossible to determine the range by adding signals to saturate the doppler effect. But burning a missile with microwaves is still impossible.

    I would guess it interferes in the missiles proximity fuse... making the missile think it is closer to the target plane than it actually is and exploding early.

    Various anti artillery systems do the same to make their proximity fuses detonate the rockets and shells too high up in the air to do damage.

    Or it might just break lock and cause the missiles to self destruct.

    The R-73 missiles they use have a laser proximity fuse, the sidewinders from that F-15 probably a radio fuse.

    Modern missiles have laser fuzes. Unjammable.
