SLMPGM T-231 Archer Missile System by ScrewfaceRomeo SLMPGM T-231 Archer Missile System by ScrewfaceRomeo
OK folks, the Shoulder-Launched, Multi-Purpose Guided Missile, Type 231 "Archer" System

Included are the missile itself (Arrow), Missile tube (Quiver) and the Launcher Unit (Bow). The Arrow Missile comes in several variants, and can be launched from Helicopters, Tanks, APCs, MATUV utility trucks, and of course the Bow launcher. Most common varients include: Silver Arrow, an anti-armor rocket equipped with a duel charge to defeat Explosive Reactive Armor and a depleted uranium penetration rod followed by a 105mm high explosive charge. The Silver Arrow is designed for top-attack, much like the Javelin rocket, and can take out most tanks and Light Armored Vehicles with a single hit. The Fire Arrow, an incendiary variant intended for use against jungle cover and personnel. Typically helicopter-launched, though it is available for infantry and Armor. The Golden Arrow, a high-explosive variant designed to penetrate bunkers and other fortifications. Like the Silver Arrow, it is capable of top-attack. All "Arrow" type rockets are capable of using four guidance systems, for redundancy and further multi-purpose use: Thermal, Built-in Laser, External Laser Designation and Computer-Guided. In Thermal mode, the rocket is locked onto a heat signature, and tracks it. In Built-in Laser, the laser guide from the Helicopter, Armored Vehicle or Shoulder Launcher is used to paint the target. In External Laser Designation, the rocket locks onto a signal from an infantry laser designation device, allowing it to be launched behind cover and guided by a forward scout, or helicopter-launched and infantry guided. In Computer-Guided mode the rocket is launched, then taken over by the BattleNet System, which guides it to it's target using GPS and other methods. This allows the rocket to be fired at a target outside of visual range, and used like artillery. The Archer System has a range of 11 km, and weighs 6 lbs, unloaded. The rocket canister weighs 7 lbs 5lbs or 6 lbs, depending on variant.

Kouralia is soo going to look into developing an anti-life-form rocket when we get our mits on these beauties. Destroy dragons with minimal expense!

Well, the Fire Arrow is anti-personal... Think armor piercing napalm.

The irony: destruction of dragons with fire...

Hmm, very nice. Reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle. Except with a warhead.
Big gun for big troubles, or simple - "Death on rout".
And... I have a think about gas and nuclear/thermonuclear warhad for this missles (within reasonable limits of power)?

I doubt you could fit a nuke on here, this ain't Starship Troopers :P and gas would be violating the Geneva Convention

Tad bit of enlargement and a Davy Crockett warhead?
