Missiles and torpedoes are projectile weapons which are used by ships equipped with missile launchers or torpedo launchers in its weapon slots. Once fired, these projectiles will tyrack in on their target. They are self guided, so once fired they will continue to run until they either hit the target or run out of fuel. Missiles tend to be more agile and can turn more tightly than torpedoes. The amount of damage these weapons deal to opponents depends on the level of the missile or torpedo launcher which launched them.

Of the nuclear missiles and nuclear torpedoes, the nuclear torpedoes are more easily obtained as they can be purchased with merits in the item store. Nuclear missiles can only be obtained in special circumstances, as noted below.

It should be noted, missiles can only be fired by missile launchers, and torpedoes can only be fired by torpedo launchers.

MissilesEdit

Missiles are weapons that are self-propelled and self guided, carrying conventional or nuclear explosives. They are fired by ships using missile launchers. There are 4 different sizes of missiles:

  1. Light: These missiles can only be used by light missile launchers (i.e. missile launchers which can be equipped by strike craft);
  2. Medium: These missiles can only be used by medium missile launchers (i.e. missile launcherds which can be equipped by escorts);
  3. Heavy: These missiles can only be used by heavy missile launchers (i.e. missile launcherds which can be equipped by lines); and
  4. XL: These missiles can only be used by XL missile launchers (i.e. missile launcherds which can be equipped by Capital class ships).

HE Warhead Missile Icon Light HE Warhead Missile Mini Tylium Icon 35 tylium The standard payload for both Colonial and Cylon missile systems, high explosive warheads contain an explosive charge that triggers when the missile comes within range of the target, throwing a cloud of high-velocity casing fragments that can cause extensive damage. Allows use of light missile attacks.

Special = These items are only obtainable from two known places: (1) As rewards from Dradis Interdiction Missions; and (2) As part of bonus packs for purchasing cubits.

TorpedoesEdit

Torpedoes are self propelled projectile weapons which, once launched are also self guiding. They only carry nuclear explosives. Due to their nature, they have a longer minimum range than missiles as when they detonate they can damage any and all ships (friendly or enemy) within the explosions range. They also cause energy loss to shipos they damage due to the EMP from the blast. Torpedoes are slower and also turn more slowly than missiles. They can only be launched from nuclear torpedo launchers.
