The AGM-65 is a highly accurate, 460-pound air-to-ground missile employed by A-10 and F-16 aircraft. The Maverick carries a 125 pound shaped charge warhead optimized against heavy armor or reinforced structures. It uses either TV or infra-red imaging guidance and provides a long range "launch and leave" capability.

The missile shown on the above left uses TV guidance. The infra-red Maverick, AGM-65D, (above right) is capable of striking moving targets at night.
