Infrared and guided fire-and-forget missile launcher. For all your moving target needs.
Ammu-Nation and Social Club description.

The Hawk & Little Homing Launcher is a weapon that appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, as part of the Festive Surprise update.

Design[]

Grand Theft Auto V and Online[]

Ex-Military infrared guided missile launcher. Is it strictly approved for civilian use? No. But will anyone be able to drive away fast enough to report you? Now you’re asking the right questions.
Career Builder description, GTA Online.

The weapon is a shoulder-fired surface-to-air (SAM) missile launcher based on the SA-7 Grail, though it has a tracking antenna and trigger guard from a FIM-92 Stinger. The launcher's warhead is also exposed, instead of housed in the tube.

It has the unique ability of targeting vehicles, both ground and air. Its targeting system is similar to the missiles found on some weaponized aircraft, being able to lock-on to selected targets indicated by an outlined box. It can also be fired freely without any targets. As such, it is similar to the Heat Seeking Rocket Launcher from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

According to the text on the side of the weapon, the Homing Launcher is property of the San Andreas Government.

Performance[]

Grand Theft Auto V and Online[]

The Homing Launcher has an incredibly long range; it can lock on to vehicles 300 meters away, and the missile has a maximum range of 1,080 meters before it self destructs in ten seconds, being able to follow fighter jets for a very long distance, surpassing all missiles/rockets (including mounted rockets on vehicles). The projectiles fired by the Homing Launcher are very fast (108m/s or 388.8kph) and can easily chase down a P-996 LAZER in flight. The missiles can destroy or disable aircraft in only one hit, making them the best weapon to use against aircraft, alongside the Minigun and the Railgun. The missile is most effective at pursuing escaping enemies, as approaching ones will have a much easier time dodging the missile. However, it takes two seconds to acquire lock-on to a target. Additionally, it can carry only 10 rockets instead of 20 unlike the normal Rocket Launcher. Homing Launcher missiles locked onto a player-controlled aircraft (especially noted with helicopters) is able to sweep back around when it misses its target the first time. Additionally, rockets fired at stronger vehicles (like the Rhino Tank, Cargobob, etc) by the Homing Launcher may cause fire to be spread onto the vehicle. Although this can avoid explosion, it can still cause damage to the vehicle, especially aircraft.

A well-shot missile is likely a death sentence for unarmored helicopters and slow planes. However, an experienced pilot in a fighter jet will easily dodge its shots, although they will probably break off their attack while missiles are in air in order to get rid of them.

Unlike the Rocket Launcher however, the explosion damage against vehicles is lower and, as such, vehicle explosion is not guaranteed when hitting an aircraft or an armored helicopter such as the Cargobob. It will, at least, destroy the engine (in the case of aircraft with multiple engines, one of the two) and may even blow parts off, making piloting the said vehicle much harder. It will take three times the amount to destroy certain vehicles like the Insurgent, which requires 23 homing missiles rather than eight RPG rockets to blow it up, due to a flag that does not inflict extra petrol tank damage. These missiles share the same blast radius similar to the Rocket Launcher and most explosives (five meters), and are still lethal if caught anywhere in the explosion.

The Homing Launcher has been rebalanced in the Heists update to have increased reload times, reduced firing rate, and an increase to the resilience of large capacity planes against it. Additionally, it appears to be less effective compared to the rockets fired from a Ruiner 2000 (Import/Export).
