The Direct Attack Guided Rocket (DAGR)

The Direct Attack Guided Rocket (DAGR) is a weapons system under development by Lockheed Martin. The program goal is to provide a low cost 2.75 inch (70 mm) precision guided rocket which is compatible with existing Hellfire II systems and launchers in service.[1] The system will use components from the existing Hydra 70 rocket, but differs from other upgrades to the Hydra 70 such as APKWS and LOGIR in that it is designed to be plug-and-play compatible with the Hellfire missile and use the M299 Hellfire launcher, increasing the load-out by up to four times.[2]
