The AGM-114 is a unique weapon available to the AV-42C. It is a versatile laser-guided Air-to-Ground Missile designed with Close Air Support tactics in mind. One rack contains four missiles each, making it easy to bring many of these missiles into battle, and is much lighter than a rack of AGM-65s.

Usage[]

The missile is not a fire-and-forget weapon system. A target must be designated by the AV-42C's TGP and kept on target until impact. Maneuvering too unpredictably could cause the TGP to reach its gimbal limit during flight; this will divert the missile's course elsewhere and cause it to miss its target. This restriction makes it nonviable for use in areas with heavy air defenses, but it is still useful against other ground targets, especially when one's deployment budget is an issue. Note that the target can be changed while the AGM-114 is in flight if the TGP is set to a different target before impact; remember to take the missile's maneuverability into account and do not attempt this late in the missile's flight path.
