The armor-piercing rocket is a standard air-to-air munition. Each hardpoint slot can carry 4 AP rockets. AP rockets are equipped with a long, sharp, reinforced nose, designed to slice through armor on impact. Their design limits the payload capacity, meaning that AP rockets are usually part of a mixed-weapon assault - attackers use AP rockets to strip away their target's armor, and then finish them with HE or flak rockets, or dum-dum ammunition.

At least thirty manufacturers in North America produce at least one model of AP rocket, although the DeBruin Company is the market leader.
