Missile Racks are launchers for small anti-ship missiles.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The typical missile used by standardized ship’s missile racks is a homing type which constantly seeks the target ship, ultimately being destroyed by the target's defenses, or exploding and doing damage to it. Such missiles may also be converted to planetary surface bombs, or to surveillance drones. [1]

Reloading Missile Racks[edit]

Reloading: Each launcher (sand or missile) has an inherent capacity for three missiles or canisters. This means that a triple turret with three missile launchers has a total of nine missiles in ready position.

When a launcher's missiles or canisters are exhausted, it can be quickly reloaded by the turret's gunner. Reloading three launchers takes slightly longer. A gunner engaged in reloading is unable to fire other weaponry in the turret. [4]
