A stock missile capable of hitting targets using only SAS target lock. This is achieved using highly advanced, classified government technology (part clipping.) Each fin has three more clipped inside of it, which allows it to shrug off the force of gravity which usually makes SAS target lock ineffective for missiles. As a result of this technique, it is heavy, has high drag, and has an absurd part count for a missile. It’s not really fast enough to catch a fighter, so air-to-air use is restricted to close-range, slow targets. It has a longer range in the air-to-ground role, as it can glide to save fuel.

Firing Procedure:
1. BEFORE staging the missile, select the probe core and do a control from here.
2. Stage the missile. As a result of step #1, the camera follows the missile and you are saved the trouble of switching crafts.
3. Engage SAS, and lock on to your target.
4. Adjust throttle as needed to conserve fuel.
5. Enjoy the fireworks.

Although they are heavy and draggy, I’ve built attackers that can carry six Bloodhounds under the wings. You could fit more in a bomb bay, I guess.
