Two insurgents on a rooftop somewhere in Iraq are spotted from the air. The are targeted by a Spike NLOS Missile equipped with a nose mounted camera.
Two unknown individuals are spotted from the air. After doing some quick work, they are found to be armed insurgents, dangerous to coalition troops.
Nearby friendly forces on the ground fire a single Spike NLOS missile and guide it towards the target. The eye in the sky keeps its sights on target while the missile hones in for the kill.
As if the operator of the missile was sure there would be some question, he locks the weapon system onto the enemies machine gun. Fractions of a second later, the insurgents are no longer a threat.
