A large guided missile suited for long-range support by backline combat ships. A combat-rated autoloader system ensures continued usefulness in protracted engagements.
A technologically mature weapon system, the Pilum-class missile is the obvious choice for long-range strikes by cautious captains. The guidance system on this weapon make it dangerous versus only the heavier of enemy craft. Unfortunately, those craft also tend to have the best point defense system, which somewhat limits the Pilum's otherwise considerable punch.
The Pilum LRM is a long-ranged missile with very high endurance (over a minute, compared to around ten seconds for the Harpoon MRM). Unlike most other missiles, it gradually regenerates ammunition over time.
