Related Weapons[edit]

  • Long Range Torpedos are the underwater counterpart to LRMs, with all of the advantages and downsides that would imply. The ammunition and launchers are not interchangeable with their on-land counterpart.
  • The Clan-only Streak LRMs trade indirect-fire capability for ammunition efficiency.
  • Extended LRM (ELRM) launchers extend the weapon's range to well over a kilometer, but are even less usable in close quarters, on top of being larger and heavier, and not being compatible with special munitions of any kind.
  • Enhanced LRM (NLRM) launchers are a special variant of Inner Sphere LRM launchers which dynamically adjust their firing trajectory to mitigate the minimum range penalties. Though they are fully backwards-compatible with all special munitions and add-ons for standard LRM launchers, they tend to be heavier.
  • Multi-Missile Launchers can fire LRMs and SRMs interchangeably.
