Gear: Rocket Launchers

Rockets are primarily devices that deliver payloads – usually a warhead. Some are designed for "kinetic kill," a term used for the damage caused by directly crashing into a target, but most use explosives to take down their target. Nevertheless, even a warhead can cause some injury if it crashes into something. The damage listed here gives this kinetic damage, warhead damage is extra.

Rockets of the Verge typically use an electrothermal arc that "burns," or continuously erodes and disintegrates, an energized SMES ring. The eroded material forms the propellant jet that provides thrust. Most rockets start with an initial high-thrust boost to get up to speed, then cruise under sustained lower thrust to maintain speed against air resistance. The arc jet produces a brilliant blue-white flare, and the rocket appears as a bright streak shooting from its launcher to its point of impact. It takes some distance to get up to speed, kinetic damage within that range will be reduced – the warhead damage is unchanged, of course. Unguided rockets have poor accuracy. Most include some form of guidance to keep them on target.

At distances closer than their Boost range, reduce the Pen of the rocket for kinetic damage by the same RS to get from the Boost range to the range to the target. Up to the Burnout range, the rocket can compensate for dropping due to gravity by using its thrust and control fins – only apply half the Speed penalties to hit (round down) at this range and closer. The Speed bonus for defense is not changed. In addition, the rocket does not lose speed at less than the Burnout range. Only apply DA range effects after the Burnout distance.

For contact and blast damage, a value in parentheses in the AP column gives the Sharp of the effect. Fragmentation values in parentheses in the Spread column give the Shot score of the burst.

Kinetic warheads have a second stage booster rocket that accelerates a tungsten penetrator dart to high speeds before crashing into the target. An unguided warhead can launch off its kinetic dart as soon as the main rocket has finished boosting its payload up to speed. This makes unguided kinetic rockets behave essentially like direct fire projectile weapons, with all the ballistic characteristics of the kinetic dart. Alternately, the warhead can be proximity fused so that the unguided rocket launches its kinetic payload when it gets to just outside the boost distance of the kinetic rocket. Inertial guided rockets also have the option of launching the kinetic dart at a pre-defined position. More advanced guidance will have the missile lining up the kinetic with the target at some point outside of the kinetic rocket's boost distance and shooting the kinetic at the target at an optimal position. This is handled as a normal ranged attack from the missile's position at the time of launch to the target, using the guidance system's Homing score for its attack skill and the Aim for the kinetic rocket as the Aim for the attack. This Aim is only used for guided attacks. The impact of the larger kinetic darts is sufficiently violent that it can cause an explosion and significant nearby blast effects.

Gyrojets

Gyrojets are multiple-shot rocket launchers with a profile and form factor similar to a firearm, resembling pistols or rifles. They are generally lightly constructed, since rockets have very low stress of firing. Much of their weight comes from their ammunition load. In order to use guided rounds, the gunner needs to synch her personal computer to the launcher's on-board camera and use the computer's perception, targeting, and Skill (Spot) software to ID the target and lock the rocket on target. Unguided and inertial guided rounds can be fired simply by pointing the gun and squeezing the trigger.

Mini-missiles

Mini-missiles are small guided missiles. They are used by infantry as area effect and light anti-armor munitions with longer range than grenades. On vehicles or armor, they are commonly used to counter incoming threats; whether rockets, missiles, or launched warheads. Mini-missiles can be launched from large-bore gyrojet platforms, I-launch guns, or launch tubes. When mounted on armored systems, they are often packed as clustered launch tubes, allowing simultaneous fire of large number of rockets to counter incoming swarms of projectiles. The launch tube does not need to be pointed at the target. A guided mini-missile can be popped out of the tube, after which it ignites its motor and orients itself toward its intended target.

Recoilless Rifle

A recoilless rifle is not exactly a rocket, although utilises the rocket principle to cancel the recoil of firing by blowing back propellant to shoot the shell forward. Unlike true rockets, this boost phase occurs in the breach of the weapon. Propulsion is provided by discharging a SMES into a working fluid, vaporizing it, and using the high pressure vapor to push the projectile out the barrel at high speeds. The barrel is rifled for increased accuracy. Some shells do have a small sustainer rocket for a significant cruise phase. Recoilless rifles are commonly used as heavy weapons by infantry to take out massed formations, armored vehicles, bunkers, and other light fortifications. While designed for reduced backblast, there is still a hazard – Pen 0.3 Wound +9 Smash damage within 1 meter directly behind the rifle.

    Man-Portable Rocket Launchers

    These are heavy weapons, designed to be carried by a single person to take out large threats. The rockets of the Verge are typically cold-launched, both to eliminate the backblast hazard to anyone standing behind the launcher, and to reduce the signature of the launch so it is more difficult to pinpoint the location of the firer. The rocket is first locked on to a target, then a burst of compressed gas pops the rocket out of the tube. At several meters distance, the rocket motor fires up and begins accelerating the munition.

          Anti-Tank Missile: A man-portable missile system designed for attacking armored vehicles. It also finds use as an expedient (if expensive) way of taking out bunkers. The missile locks on to a target designated by the user, and autonomously flies toward and attacks the target. It is programmed to attack the top of armored vehicles, skimming close to the ground before rising up at the last moment to plunge down from above.

          The basic missile package can be upgraded with a high-agility airframe and enhanced control systems that allow it to strike faster-moving targets and better evade point defense systems. In addition, an autonomous stealth/seeker upgrade combo is available, with a standard stealth suite of thermal cloaking, radar stealth, and a holographic surface combined with advanced software for object detection and recogognition, route planning, and tactical operation. Missiles with the stealth/seeker option can choose an approach trajectory that utilizes cover, can re-aquire the target if it loses line-of-sight, can autonomously choose their own target if so directed, and frequently cut their rocket motor for low visibility during the final approach and simply glide into their target once out of cover. The Awareness + Spot Skill of the seeker is given by the seeker's Lock-On score.

          The initial target designation is done with the on-board software of the launcher system. This can synch up with any personal computer used by the operator, allowing the launcher to remotely use any software on that computer. In game terms, the user's computer's Awareness + Skill (Spot) can be used in place of the listed Lock-On score of the launcher.

          An anti-tank warhead can be equipped with an off-axis shaped charge warhead. This allows it to make fly-over attacks, coming out of cover and flying directly over its target at close range and then detonating without actually pointing at the target. This allows it to spend less time under fire from the target's point defense systems. The shaped charge attack is less effective at penetrating armor than a kinetic warhead – if you can tolerate maneuvering so the missile points its nose at the target a kinetic warhead will be more effective.

              • Kinetic: Aim score only applies to guided missiles using the guidance Homing score for the ranged attack skill roll.

              Cruise Missile: A stealthy, long range missile that can be launched from aircraft or ground vehicles. It launches with a rocket, but at cruising altitude it extends wings and transitions to a quiet electric turbofan for sneaky running. It is generally sent to go to a particular location and blow up a particular target, although it can be set to choose an appropriate target once at the destination to destroy. It will attempt to approach under cover, flying close to the ground and using terrain for concealment until the last moment. The cruise missile is fully stealthed, with an invisibility coating, thermal cloaking, and extensive radar stealthing. It is, however, not protected against aedar (use the missile's Size for its aedar signature).

              Light Glide Bomb: A stealthy bomb dropped from an aircraft that glides down to its target. The bomb relies on its stealth amd a low-obervable flight profile – using terrain for cover if possible – to approach without warning. If it is detected, its high-agility airframe often allows it to dodge enemy fire.
