The missile has fire and forget slave-by-radar capabilities. The TC-2 Sky Sword II (天劍二, Tien Chien II) is a radar guided air-to-air missile developed by the Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST) in Taiwan Republic of China (ROC) during the 1990s for the ROC Air Force. It also has folding control surfaces to be quad-packed into either above-deck oblique launchers or in-deck vertical launch systems. What is missing in the halls of power, even if it's present in the general public, is the will to accept that new weapons will not suddenly make the wars winnable.

That construct, that series of “would you like to know more?” factoids, tells the story of the Forever War, but it mostly tells it by omission. Technology is undeniably a key part of the story, but a narrow focus on the technology makes the coverage a kind of anti-news, as it merely rehashes the assumptions baked into years of war. It features a number of incremental improvements including an improved rocket motor which allows an engagement range of 100km. This enables it, in theory if not always in execution, to puncture the roof of a car while spinning, blades out, pureeing a human being in the passenger seat while potentially leaving the driver intact, save for the life-long trauma from the experience. The Sky Sword II (Chinese: 天劍二, Tien Chien II), or TC-2, is a medium-range, radar guided air-to-air missile. The R9X is a variant on the Hellfire anti-tank missile. It fills the requirement of the ROCAF for an Anti-Radiation Missile to arm the F-CK-1. Detailed reports first surfaced in 2019 of the existence of a precision warhead equipped with six sword-like blades that allow the missile to cut through buildings or cars with ease.

Focusing on the missile specifically misses everything that puts a missile in the sky, ready to be used against a human being. The same Pentagon that argued for the sword missile as part of a smaller munitions push also made “lethality” the centerpiece of its mission and acquisitions programs as the Trump administration took office. It has an inertial navigation system, a data-link for mid-course guidance and active radar homing for terminal guidance, beyond visual range. That construct, that series of "would you like to know more?" A weapon that can kill people in one car, without threatening people in the area around the car, provides a temporary workaround, until the tactics of the insurgents targeted change again. The United States cannot engineer its way out of the so-called “War on Terror.”. The US has started using the R9X missile, which is packed with blades, against targets in the ongoing war on terror.
