AGM-114L says hello. Or it would hop to "only that kind of ATGMs and not other kind of ATGMs" now?
In the context of ATGMs, I am fairly sure.
That is such glaring mind fallacy that it would be rude to elaborate. I think that whole forum agree with Stuart when he said about soviet 100mm tank cannons being panicked response to M103 and Conqueror by not counter-claiming him, right?
"We" refers to people who have read my comment and have shown agreement with my sentiment by not providing any counter-claims, like you.
You see, several people here have claimed that 4th and 5th generation missiles are just a marketing gimmick, and aren't a reality.
I responded by explaining that they indicate added guidance methods, such as FO&U, and networking.
You. That's the point here. Tech generations usually not determined by forum users, and even when they are proposed by widely respected sources they are often vague. Or, if we will go with forum users,we will end with such things: F-22 have only single radar array in X-band based on GaAs tech, while T-50 have five to eight radar arrays in both X-band and L-band based on GaN tech. F-22 have no dedicated active ECM suite and relies only on main radar array for very limited ECM, while T-50 have dedicated ECM suite which utilizes both radar arrays and its own arrays, plus full coverage by DIRCM system. F-22 relies solely on main radar for search and track and have no passive SaT capability, while T-50 have dedicated IRST station plus wide array of IR and UV sensors for 360 degree passive coverage for search and track. Based on all that, glorified Me states that T-50 is six gen when compared to widely accepted fifth gen of F-22. Your thoughts?
The Hellfire AGM something with an L suffix, uses radar guidance. This gives the operators the ability to observe the missile's target throughout the entire course of the flight in NLOS circumstances.
Via the helicopter's radar, the crew are telling the missile what the target is, or whether they should engage a different target.
As I said, you can do F&F with a missile that does LOAL, but you can't do LOAL with a missile that does ONLY F&F.
And the Hellfire is not only F&F.
