The General Dynamics FIM-43 Redeye was a man-portablesurface-to-air missile system. It used infrared homing to track its target. Like all first generation infrared missions, FIM-43 Redeye were tail chaser. Production was terminated in September 1969 after about 85,000 rounds had been built - in anticipation of the Redeye II, which later became the FIM-92 Stinger. The Redeye was withdrawn gradually between 1982 and 1995 as the Stinger was deployed.
