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.
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.
