Short-Range Assault Weapon - Duster

Created by Admiral Rhea Kydalla on Wed Oct 26th, 2011 @ 4:29pm


This weapon is a lightweight, close range missile system that has a shorter range than the man-portable air-defence system. It is a fire-and-forget weapon utilizing a pre-launch system that measures target speed and direction and is used in conjunction with known missile flight performance to predict where the target will be when the missile is in a position to intercept.

The missile also uses an inertial guidance unit that sends the weapon over the predicted intercept point, compensating for crosswind and launcher motion (the launcher may be mounted on or fired from a vehicle). For direct attacks the missile acts as an unguided, flattened trajectory, line-of-sight weapon.
