Even less effective than the FighterKiller, almost anything can shake it off and survive any impact.


Poor maneuverability, low speed, and ridiculously short range combine to destroy any effectiveness this may have ever had. Unless the target is directly in front of the launcher and within less then twenty-five meters when the missiles are launched, then this weapon WILL miss. The few ships fitted with this weapon (the Iceni and Moloch) would do well to replace them with another flak.
