As you can see, the internal parts of this weapon are very different from the Longbow Hellfire. Different Marks of this version of the missile can be fired, with a greatly extended range, from high altitude flying Predator UAVs. A different mark of this version of the missile can also be fired from the Hammerhead Multiple Small Missile Launcher that can be mounted on vehicles such as the Marine's LAVs, the Strykers, Bradley M2s and M3s as well as other vehicles.

the Longbow and the Hellfire ka
different in a number of ways. the Longbow version is design to work with the Longbow Radars and other remote sensing devices of the Longbow Concept Program. for example one helicopter in a squadron can fire a Longbow Missile from a different helicopter in the squadron or one in a completely different squadron, because that helicopter have a better shot at the target. the Hellfire II is designed to work with other systems besides the Longbow system. for example Predators are armed with the Advanced Hellfire II mark that is special make to be fire from very high altitude and so also have much much longer range than standard Longbow Hellfire missile. from 50,000 feet as a Predator can fly, a Hellfire II launch from this altitude would have a range in the area of 40 miles instead of only 5 miles.

Yes, 40 miles instead of 5 miles is a lot different there.
