Coyote Block 2
Power supply by micro turbine?
That's what I'd think. Or just screw a new closure on the front end. (I think Aerotech's are threaded vs snap rings.)
Up to helicopters, per the vid. It is also a lot faster than Block 1.Wait, that's an interceptor? What for? Seems unnecessarily complex. (And slow.)
The Coyote Block 2 specifically features improved sensors and rocket motors to significantly increase maneuverability. Propulsion relies on one jet engine, deeply improving speed and loiter time to engage larger and further targets. The Block 2 variant will feature a maximum speed of 200 knots (370 km/h), compared to 70 knots (130 km/h) for the Block 1 variant, and an operational range of 10 to 15 km.
