The "Sparrow" is ann ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile). However, it is capable of carrying a warhead. Few years ago it was in the news that Israel hit the targets in Syria with ALBM which have proven to be impossible problem for Syrian air defenses. I suppose it is the same thing, or variant of it. Who would want to waste resources developing two completely separate systems for similar purpose ?

@Trenchsol: Actually there is such an ALBM and it is smaller and slenderer than any of these Sparrow's ("Anqor"). I wouldn't know about it if it weren't proposed to export customers. "Rampage" is made by IMI, now Elbit, and it is apparently based on their EXTRA guided artillery rocket: A heavier, Anqor-based ALBM is a possibility, although nothing about such was ever made public, and I'd guess that its warhead could be "other than" high explosive...
