Long Range Missile

16 bytes added, 19:26, 20 December 2018
Long Range Missile technology has been expanded upon since it was first introduced, especially in the years since the [[Clan Invasion]] spurred weapons designers on both sides. These include [[Extended LRM|Extended]], [[Enhanced LRM|Enhanced]], and [[Streak]] LRMs, as well as scaled-down [[battle armor]] versions.
==Hot Loading==
Nearly all LRM types (and [[ATM]] types, according to [[errata]]) can be "hot loaded", implying that their warheads and guidance systems are armed, even as they sit in the ammo stores of the vehicle. This effectively eliminates the minimum range issue that Inner Sphere LRM missiles have, but at a cost of accuracy.
