The Stilleto is an advanced subsystem disruption missile, used to target tactically important features on large ships from long range. It does negligable hull damage, making it ideal for disarm and disable operations. It has excellent range and high speed, along with a self-seeking guidance system that allows it to be launched without an aspect lock.
This weapon is arguably even more dangerous than a GTM Cyclops to the target ship. While it does no damage to structure or hull integrity, it can render the target easy prey to virtually every other ship and weapon: with a single coordinated volley of missiles, a wing of tactical units can clear virtually every anti-fighter weapon off the side of an enemy warship from long range.
The high speed of incoming Stilletoes makes them difficult to intercept. And the fact that they do not require an aspect lock means that enemy fighters will be launching these at allied warships pretty much the instant they exit hyperspace. They are a dire threat to the defenders and a powerful tool for the aggressors.
Tech Room Data
The GTM-43a Stiletto II improves upon the original Stiletto's design with higher acceleration and maximum velocity, better guidance system, and greater range. The Stiletto II, like its predecessor, is designed to incapacitate the subsystems of capital ships, homing in on the EM signature of the currently targeted subsystem.
