The US Army has received its 1,000th Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) missile from Lockheed Martin.

The PAC-3 missile is a high-velocity interceptor that defeats incoming targets by direct, body-to-body impact.

The first hit-to-kill interceptor produced by the US is capable of destroying tactical ballistic missiles (TBMs) carrying weapons of mass destruction, advanced cruise missiles and aircraft.

The PAC-3 missile features a solid propellant rocket motor, aerodynamic controls, attitude control motors (ACMs) and inertial guidance to navigate.

The US allies that have pressed the PAC-3 missile into service include the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Taiwan.
