There are also very effective antipersonal versions of Hellfire (both with explosive or thermobaric warheads for example). I highly doubt that the Hellfires used to kill that AQ man in Yemen were anti tank version.

This image shows this model can carry two laser guided bombs. Of course that means that it has to sacrifice a couple of Hellfires to carry such weapons.




Somebody posted this image of the Reaper packing heat. What I notice was that it looks like its carry Sidewinders. Can this aircraft do air to air combat? I know that somebody pasted this "More Cowbell" and looks touched up on this image. However it looks like a official concept pic provided by the creators. Since this says Predator B on the side, its an old pic and maybe they shelved any possible future of air to air capability for this aircraft before the final product.

They're going to be testing the AIM-9 and AIM-120 on them in the next year or so. So eventually yes, they will be able to do A2A.
