Guided Gyrojet Rounds

Description[edit]

Guided Gyrojet Rounds are special rounds designed to be used by gyrojet weapons. These variants on typical gyrojet and gyroslug rounds reduce some of their explosive charge for a miniatureized vector-thrust system attuned to a transmitter attached to the weapon's barrel. By holding their sights on the target, the firer can guide the round while in mid-flight, though flight times are brief. These rounds were based on the Federated Suns development of Precision shells for Autocannons, following failed attempts to produced guided rounds for normal slug-thrower weapons. In addition to the expense in producing these guided rounds, the use of a special barrel mount precludes the addition of other muzzle-mounted accessories.[1]
