The Rocket Pistol, Designed by Instellarms LIC, is a rare, expensive, and extremely accurate firearm.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The pistol itself is simply a launching tube for the projectile, having little bearing on its performance.

The projectile consists of 3 sections --propellant, guidance system, and warhead. The propellant is a liquid fuel rocket propelling the bullet at 50 metres per second. It has 30 seconds worth of fuel and can perform unlimited manoeuvres during this time. The guidance system is an IR sensing tracking package with an initial radio link to the pistol. The warhead is a shaped, high-explosive charge.

The pistol itself consists of the launching barrel, target-painting laser, and a magazine holding three rounds. When the trigger is pulled, the laser denotes the target. The information is then conveyed to the projectile's guidance system. The projectile fires, and tracks its target until it hits.

If the projectile misses its target the first time, it circles back and tries again. It will continue to do this until its fuel is exhausted.

Weight, unloaded: 850g (loaded magazine: 250g). Base Price: Cr1200 (loaded magazine Cr3000). Length 230mm. TL-14
