Medium range, high payload guided missile pod, with a much larger ammunition complement than the standard racks.
An externally mounted pod replaces the more common missile racks and allows two missiles to be fired almost simultaneously. An autoloader extracts, arms and primes the next salvo of two missiles after a short wait.
These medium range missiles are identical to the ones fired from single or triple racks, and are a great way to finish off a ship with downed shields. Calibers vary, but are usually around 120mm. An excellent propulsion system delivers a large warhead to the target at sublight speeds. Sacrificing maneuverability for speed and warhead size, the medium range missile is one of the highest yield non strike weapons employed in the sector. One hit is almost fatal to frigate-sized ships.
