Tech Manual These are notoriously inaccurate due to the lack of guidance once the projectile has been fired. They are best used against stationary masses or by positions with very good targetting bonuses.
They are indirect weaponry. This allows them to be used against ground based positions without being targeted by line-of-sight weapons. In order for ships to take advantage of this, they should not carry line-of-sight weapons such as beam weapons.
Infrastructure Type None
