So when do we see the kit for the 5" Zuni rocket?
 
Same weight and range as the Hellfire, but 2x the warhead.  The anti-tank version isn't as good as the Hellfire (5" dia. vs. 7" dia.) but the others (HE, frag, etc.) are much better.

Wow, for once the Marine Corps isn't the last to get a new weapons system ;)
