Short-Range Missiles, or SRMs, are non-guided direct-fire missile weapon systems.

Overview

Typical SRM

SRM missiles operate like rockets, flying in a straight line without any guidance system. Missiles are relatively fast but are only effective out to a few hundred meters. SRM launchers typically fire fewer missiles per volley than LRM launchers, but the missiles are moderately more powerful. SRMs also exist in Dual variants, which fire twice as many missiles per shot as a single launcher.

Gameplay & Hints

  • Like any explosive projectiles, SRM missiles cause some aim hampering screenshake that can be effective when mounting large amount of missiles
  • The splash Frag damage is mostly useful against Battle Armors
  • Main disadvantages are ammo shortages and the very short range.

Canon

First introduced in 2370 by the Terran Hegemony, Short Range Missiles are direct-fire missiles that sacrifice range for hitting power. Adapted towards the profusion of electronic jamming on the battlefield and the effectiveness of current armor designs, these self-guided missiles are unique for using a special armor-piercing explosive warhead.
