Description[edit]

The LRM-1 is a single-tube long-range missile launcher mounted on battle armor suits. The weapon was based on Corean Enterprises' FarShot Launcher, which they introduced in 3057 and flooded the market with in the Chaos March region, however it wouldn't be for another few years before full-production models of battle suits began carrying LRM launchers. The LRM-1 boasts the same range and payload as vehicular LRM launchers at a reduced weight, while being superior to the portable infantry model thanks to the stability and fire control systems of the suit.[3]

The drawback to the LRM-1's small size is that it has a more limited range of specialty ammunition is available - Torpedo or Multi-Purpose Missiles - given the lack of storage space and alternative loading mechanisms. Enhanced targeting gear like Artemis IV cannot be connected to the launcher.[3]
