Depends on the version actually. They'd definitely love to have a look at the lima and romeo, for sure.
Of course the latter is not operational yet. But AGM-114L has very solid tech behind it.
Such as? There isn't anything to learn.
He means MMW radar guidance and you are right russia has this technology already called Khrizantema, it has both LBR and MMW guidance channels.
Still does not mean there is no place for possible improvements that could come with examination of L/R Hellfires. Albania had technology to build assault rifles for an example, however they were never even remotely comparable in any characteristic to Yugo variants, coz they simply were bad at heat threatment and base tooling.
This could for an example bring some nice insight in for an example components minimisation, soldering materials... list is endless, small things do count. Russians might have solved some stuff better, but for sure US solved some better too, it does not hurt to peek and pick thing or two.
