Pros and cons
- Decent penetration of 64mm
- Slow compared to other AGMs such as the Bullpup (AGM-12)
- Extremely low explosive mass of only 15kg TNT equivalent, needs a direct hit even on light tanks and can struggle to destroy well armoured vehicles at all
- Manual guidance makes it difficult to hit targets precisely from a distance, especially from within an aircraft.
