Short Range Missiles
Short-Range Missiles, or SRMs, operate as rockets, flying in a straight line without any guidance system, and are only effective out to a few hundred meters. In comparison to LRMs, SRMs are nearly direct-fire weapons. SRM launchers typically fire fewer missiles per volley than LRM launchers, but are moderately more powerful. SRMs also exist in Dual variants, which fire twice as many missiles per shot as a single launcher.

Gameplay & Hints
Short range missiles, as well as their SSRM cousins, are high damage-per-second weapons that are easiely mountable in large numbers. Their high rate of fire combined with the severe cockpit shake inflicted upon enemy units makes them well suited to fight assets with high burst potential.
Their 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.
