The GES-3 Dart Swarm Heat-Seeker


Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The Oxys-Ultor GES-3 Dart is a small heat-seeking swarm missile fired in salvos of six missiles. Many pilots favor the Dart over the Javelin due to its instantaneous lock time and the sheer number of missiles fired per volley.

Quite good as an alternative to the Javelin in later missions. It's good in a dogfight or when you are too close to your target to use the Slammer.


While accuracy may be questioned, there is no doubt that this is a very decent self-defense weapon, and if all shots line up, the target is prone to a serious beating, if not critically damaged.


Multiply carrying capacity by 2, that's how many you will get.
