The Rocket Launcher 1 is a single-tube Rocket Launcher mounted on battle armor suits. Little more than a light anti-vehicle weapon strapped to a battle suit, the Rocket Launcher 1 is cheap and easy to manufacture, though beyond their cost-effectiveness they have little advantage over SRMs or LRMs. Inner Sphere suits sometimes carry rocket launchers, which mimic the ones used by BattleMechs in the Periphery, but the Clans don't even bother with these unguided projectiles.[3]
