That is meant to be used in our Navy LAMPS and Firescouts, but would kick ass in a dedicated attack helo

Pssh, these have been in Battlefield 3 for like, two years already. BAE needs to get it together.

I heard of this idea being talked about a number of years back as a way to avoid having to expend ordinance like the Hellfire and Maverick on small or low value targets.

an other option would be the laser guided AIM-9 , intended for all the users of AIM-9 that have now switched to AIM-2000 or AIM-9X and still have a large stockpile of AIM-9

Diehl Defence says it has started development work on an air-to-surface variant of the Raytheon AIM-9L air-to-air missile, which it believes could "contribute effectively to the multi-role capability of theEurofighter" for the German air force.

On show for the first time at ILA, the purpose of the laser-guided Sidewinder, or "LaGS", is to engage "lightly armoured surface targets in the air-to-surface, close air support and urban close air support roles", the German guided weapons specialist says.

By replacing the missile's infrared seeker with a semi-active laser, the design does not affect the AIM-9's total weight or centre of gravity, so no changes to its aircraft interfaces or rail launcher are required, removing the need for a customer to "shoulder considerable expenses for re-integration", it says. "The planned modification of the available guided missile will generate a new qualified product in the shortest possible time."

i think MigBuster just mention it all

 

the warhead would be the same as far as i know and i read that it is not only the explosive charge but the the high impact speed from mach2+ that would make the weapon an ideal choice

Pretty interesting product, is a kind of poor man Maverick isn't it? Of course will not kill a T-72 (or maybe yes), but is a interesting product. And can we replicate the guidance and performance on SF?

Maverick, no. The warhead wouldn't be good enough for that. Perhaps a Hellfire, again there are better warheads in there but the 9's got extra power.

yes i think the small warhead plus the high impact speed and the reduced collateral damage makes the weapon so interesting
