Israel DELILAH Missile vs. Truck

The Delilah missile is a cruise missile developed in Israel by Israel Military Industries (IMI), built to target moving and re-locatable targets with a CEP of 1 metre (3 ft 3 in). The Delilah missile is the name of several variants of an Israeli missile built by IMI (formerly TAAS). It was originally developed as an aerial decoy, but evolved into an offensive strike weapon in the 1990s used by Israel F-16's and upgraded F-4E attack aircraft. Delilah is an air-launched stand-off and cruise missile, with a turbo jet engine that allows the ability to loiter in order to enable it to target well-hidden threats, as well as attack moving targets, making it ideal in destroying SAM threats. It has a range of 250 km, and can destroy targets both on sea and on land. An autopilot onboard as well as an INS/GPS navigation system allows the missile to perform its mission autonomously; a data link enables intervention and target validation. The missile can be fitted with a variety of warheads and can be fitted to most aircraft.
