Apocalypse Missile Launcher - Chaos Reaver

Apocalypse Missile Launcher mounted upon a Chaos Reaver-class Titan

The Apocalypse Missile Launcher is a multiple launch rocket system (essentially a rocket artillery system) that is commonly mounted on the carapace of Reaver-class Titans or the carapace hard points of a Warlord-class or Imperator-class Titans. This weapon can fire guided and unguided projectiles and can hit a target a substantial distance away. The Apocalypse Missile Launcher is often employed using "shoot-and-scoot" tactics -- firing its rockets rapidly, then moving away to avoid counter fire.

OperationEdit

The Apocalypse Missile Launcher unit is comprised of the Apocalypse Launcher loaded with 20 rockets, packaged in two 10-rocket pods. The launcher, mounted on a Titan's chassis, is a highly automated self-loading and self-aiming system. It contains a fire control computer that integrates the vehicle and rocket-launching operations. The rockets can be fired individually or in ripples of 2 to 20. Accuracy is maintained in all firing modes because the launcher's computer re-aims the launcher between rounds.

The launcher's fire control Auspex allows firing missions to be carried out either manually or automatically. In a typical fire mission, a command post transmits the selected target data directly to the fire control computer which aims the launcher and prompts the crew to arm and fire a pre-selected number of rounds. Multiple mission sequences can be pre-programmed and stored in the fire control computer by the Titan's attendant Moderati.
