[edit] Description

Until the Federated Suns started researching them, the Cruise Missile had been resigned to history. Basically a large version of the unguided Arrow IV missile, the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns began testing the Cruise Missile in 3065. Unlike the Arrow IV missile system, there is no "guided" or "homing" cruise missile. This relative inaccuracy offsets the tremendous damage they cause.[4]

The Cruise Missile 120 is the largest Cruise Missile system tested by the AFFS to make it into common use. With three times the range of their smallest cousin, these warheads can influence a battle far from the launcher location. Despite this, the Cruise Missile 120 wasn't likely to be used often, as WarShip-mounted capital missile launchers are both cheaper and more maneuverable.[4]
