    Brimstone is just a modified Hellfire 2 so what kind of independence do you get with that?

    Hopefully access to mmW seeker technology. We are currently building this on the Nag missile, but it is not rigged with ability to fire from aircraft. Only helis and tanks.

    If we don't get access to this crucial piece of hardware, then it is a waste of time and money. We can eventually achieve the same with a Nag Block 2 or a Lahat Block 2. The Hellfires are the best option, but will come with no ToT.
