This missile variant use a Metal Augmented Charge (MAC) warhead to cover large blast radius and particularly effective against infantry troops and light vehicles.

concretely the effect is similar to the DAGR rocket, but with larger (twice) blast radius.

Is it possible to simply add this Hellfire Version via the ACE AESA Module ?

Sorry I'm a machine, duplicate erradictor. :)

Feel free to revive the former rejected one instead.
(Such things can be avoided by using search)

As for the primary reason the first ticket was rejected, there was barely a use for them, I think (as in: same reasoning to add some 5000lb bomb, while a 500lb bomb already flattens two blocks ... or similar description). The debate ended in some Gueneve blabla, so no outcome.
