Throttle Missiles are a smaller version of the popular Archer Missiles. While Archers are mainly used for capital ship combat, and are to powerful to be used on a planets surface, or to needed to waste on fighters, Throttle missiles are small, easily stored, so that ships can carry many of them at one time. These missiles are primarily used for Anti-Fighter roles, but they can also be used for ground support. The average Throttle is the same size as the missile used in the M19 and M41 rocket launchers, a 102mm HEAT missile. However, despite their size and similar casing, Throttle missiles have high damage ratios in vacuum. In atmosphere, there power is greatly reduced, giving them around the same power as a 102mm HEAT, though for a ship carrying thousands of them, this is not a problem.
