About

It appears that the AGM-114R9X, a secret low collateral damage derivative of the AGM-114 Hellfire missile, has been employed against occupants of another vehicle in Syria. The AGM-114R9X, which was developed at some point during President Barack Obama's two terms in office, according to The Wall Street Journal, continues to exist only behind a wall of secrecy that does not seem to apply to any other Hellfire variant. The U.S. military has openly acknowledged the existence of at least four other known AGM-114R9 subvariants, the R9B, R9E, R9G, and R9H.

Destroyed vehicle after the impact. The marks on the roof reveal how the blades of the AGM-114R9X (Ninja Bomb) cut through it. There are no marks of explosion or burns since this type of hellfire does not include any explosive material.

Video footage uploaded to youtube of the destroyed vehicle. Behind the car remnants in the ground are recognisable of the missle.

Lockheed Martin, Boeing (previous second source), and Northrop Grumman (seeker only for AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire) are the main manufacturer of Hellfire missiles. It is suspected that since they are the main manufacturers of the Hellfires that this newer type of missiles might be designed and produced by one of them as well.
