Solomani Standard Missiles

design by Rupert Boyeln

Called 'Standard' by the Confederation's Bureaucracy, they are anything but. The only standard thing about them is that they will all fit into a 10.5m3 missile tube.

Designed to fit two to a miliary 3DT turret, these were made in a bewildering number of different types - Controlled, SIM, FIM, S/FIM, short duration, long duration and everything in between.

Here are a few of the more common types:

Controlled, Heavy Warhead, Short Duration (3 hours)
TL Guid. Yield Vol Mass MCr G-T Hits Damage Range Comm Sens Signature Propulsion
8 Cont. 1x500kt 10.5 6.092 2.737 5/5 1D6 1/25-79 0 LR - +3/+2/+3/+2/+1 AZHRAE Rocket

13 Cont. 2x500kt 10.5 16.373 2.509 27/13 2D6 1/25-79 0 LR - +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery)

LR = Laser Receiver, as in the one on the Warhead.

These missiles have either a Stealth coating (TL8-9) or EMM (TL10+), for which there is only 3 hours power. As long as they are under control this can be turned off and as the controller desires.

*PEMS only powered for 1 turn.

9 FIM 1x10kt 10.5 10.058 3.011 8/8 1D6 1/8-25 0 LR P 1h +3/+2/+3/+2/+1 EPlaC RocketInt: 2, Asset: 12
Comment: A thoroughly marginal design - the PEMS only has power for 2 turns and the Warhead is tiny.
10 FIM 1x200kt 10.5 9.271 3.015 13/6 1D6 1/21-66 0 LR P 1h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Fuel Cell)Int: 2, Asset: 12
Comment: Amazing what some technology will do, no? However the PEMS is still limited to 2 turns.
11 FIM 1x200kt 10.5 13.555 3.104 12/6 1D6 1/21-66 0 LR P 1h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery) Int: 4, Asset: 14.
Comment: Finally has a full duration (10 hours) power supply for the PEMS.
12 S/FIM 1x500kt 10.5 12.967 2.319 19/9 1D6 1/25-79 0 L10 P 1h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery) Int: 3, Asset: 13
Comment: Intended for relatively short ranges.

Comment: A longer ranged missile, somewhat smarter than the above model. The PEMS can only be run at 2h range for 2 turns.
13 S/FIM 1x500kt 10.5 14.18 2.426 21/10 1D6 1/25-79 0 L10 P 1h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery)Int: 4, Asset: 14

Comment: Isn't fusion wonderful (not to mention dollops of cash)?
14 S/FIM 1x500kt 10.5 12.671 2.633 22/11 1D6 1/25-79 0 L10 P 2h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery)Int: 4, Asset: 14

Comment: Just about the ultimate in extravagance.
15 S/FIM 1x500kt 10.5 12.236 2.605 25/12 1D6 1/25-79 0 L10 P 2h +4/+3/+4/+3/+1 HEPlaR (Battery)Int: 4, Asset: 14

Comment: And you thought TL14 was bad for over the topness.

Turrets
Type TL Vol(m3) Mass(tons) Pow(MW) Area(m2) Price(MCr)
3DT Standard missile launcher 14 42 21 0 10 0.0294
6DT Standard missile launcher 14 84 42 0 16 0.0588
Mass in both cases is empty mass.

These launchers pack two or four 10.5m3 Solomani standard missiles into 3DT/6DT by relying utterly on the mounting ship for all FC, etc.
