UK looking to mount Brimstone missiles to Technicals as shore defense for Ukraine:

"One of the systems that we're looking at ... is to see if we could mount some Brimstones on the back of technicals (vehicles) to see if that will do the job."

Brimstone is essentially a Hellfire sized missile; it could be mounted to a truck, but seems of limited use against a ship:

IT's just about ideal for killing landing craft.

And a solution for a Brimstone-like missile (JAGM has same form factor) on truck already exists:
