    maverick agm-65e The missile AGM-65e is designed to order the U.S. Marine Corps Command. It uses laser seeker developed by "Rockwell" for PTUP "Hallfire". It can only be used with the backlight from the ground or target air (coded signal).

    intended for use against protected and armored ground targets, surface ships, day and night, regardless of weather conditions.

    Composition

    maverick agm-65e All options missiles" Maverick "Planes have the same normal aerodynamic design and are equipped with two-mode solid engine TX-481. In the starting mode, it develops thrust 4540 kgf, and marching - 990 kgs. Total momentum of 6160 kg thrust, the engine is running 3.5s.

    high-explosive/fragmentation/incendiary missile warhead weighing 135 kg has a solid steel housing within which is placed a powerful explosive charge. Hull Construction ricocheting it eliminates the expense and weight provides large penetration objective housing and provided with blasting explosives certain deceleration according to the selected target character.

    When flying aircraft in the vicinity of target seeker searches for the reflected laser beam from her in the sector with a cross up to 12km. Targeting data can be made by ground, air or portable systems. When a signal (at a distance of up to 18 km) head captures and monitors its goal without crew. Range missile launch is not dependent on the determined target size, and only the power of the signal reflected from it. SD "Maverick" AGM-65e can be used on an airplane without his conversion. However, compared with rockets equipped with television (AGM-65A) and thermal imaging homing (AGM-65D, AGM-65F), in which the impact parameter to display the actual image of the target is observed, in this embodiment, it only displayed characters. During scanning head in the search mode on the screen formed cruciate label that changes its position on the screen according to the deviation of the GOS. After the capture of the signal reflected from the target (ie goal) is displayed in its place a square label, alerting the pilot that goal captured and accompanied.
