Tech Room Data

Advanced signal processing - high precision interception capability - small payload (9 Kt), combining both conventional explosives and a localized blast of energy caused by the effect of impact upon the laser-propulsion system of the missile - designed to temporarily disable subsystems on hostile targets.

The D-Missile is designed to temporarily stop a cruiser or destroyer from firing its laser turrets. The effect will last about 10 seconds per missile fired, so using these to temporarily disable a cruiser should usually be for suppression until the cruiser is destroyed, or whatever was trying to evade the cruiser has gotten out of range. Only a few ships can carry these - and they are very scarce - so proper utilization is important.

Veteran Comments

Not an issue in Freespace 1, but in the Freespace Port the D-Missile effect extends around the blast, often disrupting the vessel that fired it. This weapon has limited tactical use but is effective at what it does.
