From the name itself you could tell that the AGM–114 II Hellfire is sure not a missile to reckon with. The AGM-114 II Hellfire missile is an air-to-ground missile that was built for penetrating armour tanks.
The missile which is used mostly by helicopters and combat jets is a classic precision air-to-ground missile that is capable of delivering a very lethal blow to it target. Right now the Hellfire missile is used by the U.S. and 16 other countries.
There are five types of the Hellfire II missile currently in use right now, the AGM-114K, which is built purposely for the destruction of armoured tanks. The AGM-114L, Which is used for the destruction of soft targets like buildings and bunkers.
The AGM-114M, Which is used to provide blasts in enclosed entities like building or caves. We also have the AGM-114N which is used to provide minor damage to structures.
Then we have the latest and the most lethal of them all, the AGM-114R, which is like a missile with the capability of all the previous AGM missiles. It comes with laser trackers and massive destruction capability.
The Hellfire missile is one weapon you do not want to mess with especially if it a tank.
