We hope you are enjoying our series on the AGM 114 Hellfire Missile. It is proving to be difficult to replace, and newer marks of this weapon are being deployed now. More are in the works under development.

Here are the basic stats of the basic Hellfire Missile. Remember these specifications are from Wikipedia, and this source is not always reliable about detail and stats. However, in this case they have done a good job as most of these stats can be found at the Lockheed/Martin site and other sites around the web agree with most of these listed here.
