A brief policy of awarding fighter and bomber designations to missiles led it to be redesignated F in In , the policy changed again, and the missile was again redesignated GAR Canada also hoped to use them on the Avro CF Arrow interceptor; however, this was never realized because of the Arrow's cancellation.
Fighters carrying the Falcon were often designed with internal weapons bays for carrying this missile. The Scorpion carried them on wingtip pods, while the Delta Dagger and Delta Dart had belly bays with a trapeze mechanism to move them into the airstream for launch see picture above. The FB had an unusual bay arrangement where two were stored externally, and then the bay door would rotate to expose two more missiles.
It is likely the F Aardvark 's internal bay would have accommodated the missile as well, but by the time of service, the Air Force had already dropped the Falcon for use against fighters, as well as the idea of using the F as an air combat fighter. About 4, missiles were produced. The GAR-2 later AIM-4B was a heat-seeker, generally limited to rear-aspect engagements , but with the advantage of being a ' fire and forget ' weapon.

As would also be Soviet practice, it was common to fire the weapon in salvos of both types to increase the chances of a hit a heat-seeking missile fired first, followed moments later by a radar-guided missile. The GAR-2 was about 1. Its range was similar. A total of about 26, of the infrared-homing Falcons were built.

All of the early Falcons had a small 7. Also limiting them tactically was the fact that Falcon lacked a proximity fuze : the fuzing for the missile was in the leading edges of the wings, requiring a direct hit to detonate. In , Hughes introduced a slightly enlarged version of the Falcon, initially dubbed Super Falcon , with a more powerful, longer-burning rocket engine, increasing speed and range. It had a larger warhead A larger version of the Falcon carrying a 0.
The missile's combat performance was very poor. The Falcon, already operational on Air Defense Command aircraft, was designed to be used against bombers, and its slow seeker cooling times as much as six or seven seconds to obtain a lock on a target rendered it largely ineffective against maneuvering fighters. Moreover, it could only be cooled once. Limited coolant supply meant that once cooled, the missile would expend its supply of liquid nitrogen in two minutes, rendering it useless on the rail.
The missile also had a small warhead, and lacked proximity fusing. As a result, only five kills were scored, all with the AIM-4D version. The weapon was unpopular with pilots from the onset and was supplemented or partially withdrawn in , to be replaced in the F-4D by the Sidewinder after retrofitting the proper wiring. I loathed the damned useless things. I wanted my Sidewinders back. In two missions I had fired seven or eight of the bloody things and not one guided. They were worse than I had anticipated. Sometimes they refused to launch; sometimes they just cruised off into the blue without guiding.
In the thick of an engagement with my head twisting and turning, trying to keep track of friend and foe, I'd forget which of the four I had already selected and couldn't tell which of the remaining was perking and which head was already expiring on its launch rail. Twice upon returning to base I had the tech rep go over the switchology and firing sequences. We never discovered I was doing anything wrong. Olds became exasperated with the Falcon's poor combat performance.
