This is the EMP missile made practical. A very long range, large area of effect, respectable impact/duration, and isn't too huge or able to be shot down. Still a very special-tactics kind of weapon in general, but it barely resembles the worthless piece of junk the FS2 EMP missile is (its effective range is barely more than its blast radius, rendering it kind of moot).
