Enhanced Long Range Missiles were developed by the Federated Commonwealth in response to the superior performance of Clan weaponry. These new LRMs use a more sophisticated arming mechanism to increase their viability at close range. The result has been a much smaller blind spot compared to traditional LRMs while still retaining the same long-range functionality. Research into Enhanced LRMs begun in 3055, with prototypes finished and production started in 3058. Enhanced LRMs are highly upgradable, able to fire a variety of warheads and benefit from devices such as Artemis IV FCS.
