Well we all know that there is no competition for AIM9x sidewinder. take a look:
http://www.raytheon.com/products/aim9_x/ref_docs/v2885a.wmv

the video clearly shows how the AIM9X has no competition in WVR encounters. The missile actually hits targets behind the launch aircraft, and of course Flares don't work against this 9X.

But in BVR encounters which missile has an edge ADDER or AMRAAM?

good topic!
although AMRAAM take down more(bigger warhead), adder prob better b/c range is MUCH farther.
