A Compact Narc Launcher is a functionally identical version of the Narc Missile Beacon which has been scaled down to be mounted on battle armor. While the Clans were technically the first to produce a Narc launcher for battle armor, their version was limited to one-off refits and never refined to the same standard as their other weapons. Thus it was the Word of Blake, having gained an appreciation of missile weapons from their Free Worlds League allies, which first introduced the Narc launcher for mass production on the Purifier Adaptive suit. While making the Purifier a powerful missile spotter, its bulk limited the suit's mobility until it was fired and jettisoned.[3][4][5]
