163. Cluster Missiles

In their continued effort to expand the utility of seeker weapons, Ares Munitions has recently put a model of "cluster missile" on the market. The missiles contain other, smaller missiles, ready to burst out and engage separate targets to effectively engage groups or overwhelm point defense. A standard missile can hold two mini or 4 micro seekers, and a mini-missile can hold 2 micro seekers.

Cluster missiles obviously put out more seekers per shot than a single warhead, but the difference is usually not so large as to be worth the increased expense. The primary use of cluster missiles is in increasing range: a standard missile has a maximum range of 10km, a mini of 3km and a micro of 2km, thus a standard missile will often be used to carry clusters to far targets, at which point it breaks apart and the mini or micro seekers attack as usual.
