AIM 120A AMRAAM air-to-air missiles were installed on the X-301 Interceptor by the Tau'ri as a countermeasure to Goa'uld attack. The X-301 carried a complement of 2 missiles which were used in a plan to slingshot the craft around Jupiter using the planet's own gravity. The plan failed as the missile provided insufficient thrust to move the craft. (SG1: "Tangent")

The missiles were later fitted onto the F-302 fighter-interceptors. Though successful in previous dogfights, their effectiveness varied against Wraith Darts; During a battle above Area 51, a number of missiles were intercepted by enemy weapons fire before impacting their target. Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard managed to use a missile to blast his way into the Super-hive however, allowing him to destroy from the inside with a nuclear weapon. (SGA: "Enemy at the Gate")
