I wonder what kind of aircraft they jumped out from.

No shortage of An-2, so that would seem more likely.

Thanks for that, I'd never even *heard* of that missile. Very interesting platform. A lot of guidance options and modes. What I found most interesting was that Wiki claims it has counter measures. I assume passive chaff/flare? When the AGM-158C variant was claimed to have advanced methods for penetrating ship defenses I always wondered if we'd gotten to the point where a missile is sufficiently expensive and the electronics sufficiently small that popping decoys in the terminal phase was actually worth the weight and expense against point defenses.

Cozy looking little plane.
