Medium Range Missile

(Redirected from MRM)

DescriptionEdit

Compared to other missile types, Medium Range Missiles are dead-fire missiles that are fired more like autocannons and lasers. The removal of guidance systems makes each missile more compact, reducing cost and allowing more missiles to be packed in comparison to SRM and LRM launchers of similar size and weight.

Prior to the development of Medium Range Missiles, there were also Dead-Fire Missiles, an attempt to increase the damage output of LRMs and SRMs at the expense of range and a lack of guidance systems.

ClassificationEdit

Several types of Medium Range Missile systems exist. Currently, no Clan version of the MRM exists, but a lighter one-shot option is available in the form of the Rocket Launcher.
