The UNSC uses a wide plethora of ammunition, some of which ranges for the crude to high tech. Though some were previously banned by the Geneva Convention and Hague Conventions, such rules of war have been laxed in the light of recent 'extiction events'. With the introduction of high power smokeless powder, negative spin and heavier metals for armour penetration, UNSC ammunition has higher velocities, higher accuracy, higher penetrating power and higher stopping power than before.

Handheld firearm cartridges

Small Calibre Ammo

Lcal

Ammo for pistols, magnums, SMGs and PDWs.

12.7x30

The ammo type chiefly used by the M6L PDWS Magnum and the M33 Revolver. The ammo is large with hefty amounts of stopping power and destructive power.

The M229 HESH has a copper-steel jacket and is filled with C-14 plastic explosive and a delayed-action base fuse. On impact, the plastic explosive is "squashed" against the surface of the target, and spreads out to form a disc or "pat" of explosive. A tiny fraction of a second later, the base fuse detonates the explosive, creating a shock wave that, owing to its large surface area and direct contact with the target, conducts very effectively through the material. This makes it useful against well armoured soldiers.

The M228 Semi-Armour-Piercing High-Penetration uses a copper semi-jacketed round with lead filler than and exposed EXCALIBUR rod. The jacket has a expansive hole on the front, making it deform upon impact, preventing it from leaving the body of it's target. The round expands into a series of barbs.

The M227 JHP uses a copper semi-jacket and a lead filler with a expansive hole for expanding inside the target and causing serious wounds. The round expands into a series of barbs.

The M226 Armour Piercing High Penetration round utilises a copper semi-jacket with a exposed EXCALIBUR core rod. Those results in a bullet with high penetration but rarely used due to its habit of over penetrating it's targets.

The M225 Semi-Armour-Piercing High-Explosive is the round primarily in use with the M6 series pistols. The round has a semi-jacket of with an armour piercing warhead on the front so it penetrates but shortly after impact the fuze, just beneath the warhead, detonates the ComL filler, causing it to explode in or on contact with, the body.

The M224 HE uses a two layer jacket of fragment forged copper and a payload of ComL filler that explodes on contact.

The M223 Semi armour piercing delayed high explosive is one of the most insidious rounds in UNSC operation, used primarily for UNSC Spec Ops. The round uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod with premade stress points to make it deform inside the body, keeping the bullet, with a RDX filler that uses a delayed fuse, which detonates 3 seconds after impact. This usually results the rounds exploding deep within soft tissue, with a number of well aimed shots resulting in catastrophic tissue damage, usually leaving little to identify.

The M231 Self-Guiding Munition is an extraordinarily exotic munition, usually used by special forces. Requiring its own weapon attachment to function properly, each munition is a guided warhead, utilising a guidance package on the pistol, linked directly to the user's heads up display. Selecting a number of targets, or a number of munitions for a single target, the user can fire them off, the pistols finding their way to their target. Capable of locking on and eliminating targets through dense foliage or around corners, it allows users to quickly fire off a number of rounds and eliminate a number of targets. The rounds themselves are larger than usual, with a minimal but high power propellant, and the rear of the round taken up be flip out fins that make micro-adjustments to find their target. Utilising a radio link between the fire control package on the gun and the round itself, it tracks itself to its target and impacts. The warhead itself is based upon the M225 SAP-HP, though it has a slightly smaller warhead.

5x23mm

The 5x23 caseless ammunition is a specialised round that dispenses with metallic casings and instead uses a nitrocellulose moulded round that, upon firing, combusts the nitrocellulose and then launches the bullet and remaining gases, leaving nothing behind. This round is usually used by the M7 SMG

The M443 Caseless Full Metal Jacket uses a steel jacket with a lightweight alloy filler, providing adequate stopping power. The centre of gravity for the bullet is close to the rear, so upon penetration it yaws and tumbles, inflicting greater damage.

The M444 Caseless Jacketed Hollow Point is a semi-jacketed round with a expansive hollow point in the lead filling, allowing the round to expand within the object it enters. The round expands into a series of barbs.

The M445 AP, a rarely used round, utilises a copper jacket, lead filler and an EXCALIBUR rod to provide penetration.

The M446 semi-armour piercing delayed high explosive is one of the most insidious rounds in UNSC operation, used primarily for UNSC Spec Ops. The round uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod with premade stress points to make it deform inside the body, keeping the bullet, with a RDX filler that uses a delayed fuse, which detonates 3 seconds after impact. This usually results the rounds exploding deep within soft tissue, with a number of well aimed shots resulting in catastrophic tissue damage, usually leaving little to identify.

The M447 SAP round uses a two layer jacket of copper and steel with an exposed fused alloy EXCALIBUR core for maximum penetration. As the standard round, the weighty round penetrates enemy body armour at long distances quite easily. It has a number of grooves in the jacket that deform the body upon impact, causing further injury. The fused alloy core fragments shortly after penetration, causes extra damage, with the round gaining pyrophoric capabilities, allowing it to melt through armour and flesh.

5.7x31mm

The small 5.7x31mm round minimizes weight and recoil while increasing penetration of body armour for use in a PDW Weapon or newer pistols. It features a bottlenecked case and a boat tail bullet accuracy. It is comparable as a scaled down rifle round. Much of the 5.7 was developed from older PDW rounds developed by Heckler and Koch and Fabrique National Herstal Group.

The M110 FMJ uses a hardened steel jacket and a lightweight allow filler for penetration of armoured infantry. It yaws and tumbles inside the body to cause extra tissue damage.

The M111 JHP uses a copper semi-jacket and a lead filler with a expansive hole for expanding inside the target and causing serious wounds. The round expands into a series of barbs.

The M112 AP is a improvement, based on controversy that the FMJ standard bullet lacks use against armoured targets. It has a solid fused alloy steel core with copper jacket. The fused alloy core fragments on contact with heat, namely the human body and causes extra damage.

The M113 Semi armour piercing delayed high explosive is one of the most insidious rounds in UNSC operation, used primarily for UNSC Spec Ops. The round uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod with premade stress points to make it deform inside the body, keeping the bullet, with a RDX filler that uses a delayed fuse, which detonates 3 seconds after impact. This usually results the rounds exploding deep within soft tissue, with a number of well aimed shots resulting in catastrophic tissue damage, usually leaving little to identify.

M114 SAP-HE uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod to penetrate modern body armour and then deliver a payload of RDX filler that explodes on a delayed fuse so it explodes within the body.

M115 Enhanced Armour Piercing rounds use an enhanced propellant and a fused alloy EXCALIBUR munition to provide a high velocity round that delivers substantial effect against even heavy enemy armour.

Mid Calibre Ammo

Mcal

6.8x32mm

The 6.8x32mm caseless ammunition is a specialised round that dispenses with metallic casings and instead uses a nitrocellulose molded round that, upon firing, combusts the nitrocellulose and then launches the bullet and remaining gases, leaving nothing behind. This round was modified from existing 6.8mm rounds for use in new carbines requiring compact but powerful ammunition. The round is powerful and effective, making it an ideal choice for penetration. The 6.8 was original based upon the 6.8 SPC Remington.

The M71 FMJ uses a hardened steel jacket and a lead filler for penetration of armoured infantry. It is rarely used in comparison to the the SAP round.

The M72 JHP uses a copper semi-jacket and a lead filler with a expansive hole for expanding inside the target and causing serious wounds. The round expands into a series of barbs.

The M75 Semi armour piercing delayed high explosive is one of the most insidious rounds in UNSC operation, used primarily for UNSC Spec Ops. The round uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod with premade stress points to make it deform inside the body, keeping the bullet, with a RDX filler that uses a delayed fuse, which detonates 3 seconds after impact. This usually results the rounds exploding deep within soft tissue, with a number of well aimed shots resulting in catastrophic tissue damage, usually leaving little to identify. .

The M76 SAP round uses a two layer jacket of copper and steel with an exposed fused alloy EXCALIBUR core for maximum penetration. As the standard round, the weighty round penetrates enemy body armour at large distances quite easily. It has a number of grooves in the jacket that deform the body upon impact, causing further injury. The fused alloy core fragments on contact with heat, namely the human body and causes extra damage, with the round gaining pyrophoric capabilities, allowing it to melt through armour and flesh.

The M77 round uses a double envelope of copper and Tungsten carbide with a filler comprising of a capacitor and a red LED (though green, yellow, white and blue versions exist.) and can only be seen from the position/side of the firer, removing the notion of 'tracers working both ways'.

The WP-07 TIR uses a metal bullet casing, with inner mechanisms for igniting the white phosphorous. Highly effective compared to earlier versions, the ignition begins once the bullet impacts on a surface, and the phosphorus goes on to melt through the casing and hit the target.

The M79 HESH has a copper-steel jacket and is filled with plastic explosive and a delayed-action base fuse. On impact, the plastic explosive is "squashed" against the surface of the target, and spreads out to form a disc or "pat" of explosive. A tiny fraction of a second later, the base fuse detonates the explosive, creating a shock wave that, owing to its large surface area and direct contact with the target, conducts very effectively through the material. This makes it useful against well armoured soldiers.

7.62x51mm

The 7.62x51mm NATO round is the standard round for UNSC MA Series assault rifles, as well as a number of machine guns and provides a large array of powerful ammo.

The M85 Semi armour piercing delayed high explosive is one of the most insidious rounds in UNSC operation, used primarily for UNSC Spec Ops. The round uses a two layer jacket of copper and EXCALIBUR penetrating rod with premade stress points to make it deform inside the body, keeping the bullet, with a RDX filler that uses a delayed fuse, which detonates 3 seconds after impact. This usually results the rounds exploding deep within soft tissue, with a number of well aimed shots resulting in catastrophic tissue damage, usually leaving little to identify. The munition was developed specifically to halt potential bio-warfare threats.

The M86 Experimental High Explosive Armour Piercing uses a semi jacketed round with a mixed filler, the upper half being lead and the lower half being ComL filler. The round deforms either in the target or on the targets armour and then the filler explodes, propelling an EXCALIBUR rod into the target.

The M87 Tracer round uses a double envelope of copper and EXCALIBUR with a filler comprising of a capacitor and a red IED (though green, yellow, white and blue versions exist.) and can only be seen from the position/side of the firer, removing the notion of 'tracers working both ways'.

The M88 HESH has a copper-steel jacket and is filled with C-14 plastic explosive and a delayed-action base fuse. On impact, the plastic explosive is "squashed" against the surface of the target, and spreads out to form a disc or "pat" of explosive. A tiny fraction of a second later, the base fuse detonates the explosive, creating a shock wave that, owing to its large surface area and direct contact with the target, conducts very effectively through the material. This makes it useful against well armoured soldiers. The more robust the armour, the more deadly the weapon becomes.

The M89 SAP round uses a two layer jacket of copper and steel with an exposed fused alloy EXCALIBUR core for maximum penetration. As the standard round, the weighty round penetrates enemy body armour at large distances quite easily. It has a number of grooves in the jacket that deform the body upon impact, causing further injury. The fused alloy core fragments on contact with heat, namely the human body and causes extra damage, with the round gaining pyrophoric capabilities, allowing it to melt through armour and flesh.

The M99 Airbursting Explosive is an exotic round, designed to engage groups of infantry. The round uses the fire control optics to determine range and arm the round. The round detonates 4-5 feet from the target, the RDX filler detonating and spraying the target with pre-forged shrapnel. This spray of shrapnel is enough to kill an unarmoured target, and when multiple rounds are fired down range, the effect is a hail of shrapnel, capable of shredding crowds.

The WP-07 TIR uses a metal bullet casing, with inner mechanisms for igniting the white phosphorous. Highly effective compared to earlier versions, the ignition begins once the bullet makes contact with a surface, and the phosphorus goes on to melt through the casing and hit the target.

This makes it useful against well armoured soldiers.

The M655 Long-Range Intelligent Guided Engagement Round is a special (and expensive) munition used for engaging enemy forces at long range. They extend the range of the munition by almost two kilometres by a mixture of means. They use deployable fins, enhanced propellant and self-guidance package, with an EXCALIBUR fused alloy warhead. Utilising the onboard fire control system in AUGUR sights, it guides the munitions to their target, arcing significantly to eliminate targets. It can also hit targets utilising satellite, remote sensor or unmanned vehicle sensors to guide the munition in.

The M10 HESH round is a squash head, delayed explosive round, designed to deliver large amounts of kinetic force into an opponent.

The WP-07 TIR uses a metal bullet casing, with inner mechanisms for igniting the white phosphorous. Highly effective compared to earlier versions, the ignition begins once the bullet makes contact with a surface, and the phosphorus goes on to melt through the casing and hit the target.

M12 armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot is the standard round for the SRS99. The round uses a spindle type sabot made of aulluminium-steel alloy to vent the explosive charge that propels it out of the gun and break away since the nitrocellulose adhesive is combusted, leaving the four finned kinetic penetrator spike, made of tungsten carbide, to hit its target. The target is capable of penetrating multiple infantry targets, thin concrete walls and light armour under 70mm.

M13 armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot uses a hardened steel kinetic penetrator, to avoid the massive over penetration of the M12 APFSDS.

M14 armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot uses a hollow steel spike so it shatters on contact with medium armour or buildings and on contact with infantry and infantry armour will pierce and fragment meaning minimal over penetration, though results are not predictable.

M15 armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot uses a alluminium-steel alloy sabot with a semi jacket of copper and a plastic cap covering a hollow point, making it expand in the body and cause minimal over penetration while almost guaranteeing a kill against unarmoured targets

M16 armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot uses a alluminium-steel alloy sabot with a Kinetic Penetrator made of military Staballoy, being a composition of 99.25% of depleted uranium and 0.75% of titanium, with an aluminium semi-jacket. The weapon has prolific armour piercing abilities on par with the M12 APFSDS but a secondary pyrophoric effect allows it to increase its anti material purpose by burning targets. On impact with with 'hard' targets, the KP penetrates and then fragments, spreading the pyrophoric fragments. This allows it to be useful against lightly armed APCs with exposed crew.

M18 Anti Infantry Sensor Fused fin-stabilised discarding sabot is a newly developed round, used in conjunction with the fire control AUGUR scope. The round is fused to explode after a predetermined distance, set by the fuse control, sending out a spray of EXCALIBUR flechettes. The flechettes are arrow headed darts with four stabilising fins. The darts themselves consist of a EXCALIBUR nose with additional barbs that on contact with the target detach and ignite, giving it additional incendiary and buck shot like effects in the human body. These will perforate light armour, making it incredibly useful against full APCs, infantry in cover, counter sniping and anti material duties.

The M19 Long-Range Intelligent Guided Engagement Round is a special (and expensive) munition used for engaging enemy forces at long range. They extend the range of the munition by almost two kilometres by a mixture of means. They use deployable fins, enhanced propellant and remote guidance, with an EXCALIBUR fused alloy warhead.

The M23 Airbursting Explosive is an exotic round, designed to engage groups of infantry. The round uses the fire control optics to determine range and arm the round. The round detonates 4-5 feet from the target, the RDX filler detonating and spraying the target with pre-forged shrapnel. This spray of shrapnel is enough to kill an unarmoured target, and when multiple rounds are fired down range, the effect is a hail of shrapnel, capable of shredding crowds.

Shells

Small calibre shells

20mm

The 20mm shell is a caseless shell fired at 2,200 meters per second, reducing the size while increasing the power incrementally.

The M104 X-HEAP uses a semi jacketed shell with a mixed filler, the upper half being lead and the lower half being RDX filler. The round deforms either in the target or on the targets armour and then the filler explodes, propelling an EXCALIBUR rod into the target.

The M105 High Explosive Incendiary Armour Piercing shell uses a contact fuse to detonate the phosphorus element, high explosive underneath that then the zirconium powder which acts as a incendiary, literally blasting a path for the EXCALIBUR penetrator rod to follow. This is for penetrating light to medium vehicles and thick walls.

The M106 airbursting munition utilises laser guidance to detonate at predefined distances, allowing the high explosive charge to send pre-forged shrapnel in a 150 degree cone.

Used primarily for engaging aircraft, it is also effective at engaging enemy infantry and light armour at short. ranges Upon nearing the target, it releases a spray of 7 mini-flechettes at about twice the speed of the shell, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta, with deadly pyrophoric effects. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. The result is the target is perforated and set on fire by the incendiary materials, which burn at a rapid rate without the use of oxygen and are capable of melting through high strength metals and ceramics.

M324 HESH shell has a copper-steel jacket and is filled with plastic explosive and a delayed-action base fuse. On impact, the plastic explosive is "squashed" against the surface of the target, and spreads out to form a disc or "pat" of explosive. A tiny fraction of a second later, the base fuse detonates the explosive, creating a shock wave that, owing to its large surface area and direct contact with the target, conducts very effectively through the material. In the case of the metal armour of a tank, the compression shock wave conducts through the armour to the point where is reaches the metal/air interface (the hollow crew compartment), where some of the energy is reflected as a tension wave. At the point where the compression and tension waves intersect, a high stress zone is created in the metal, causing pieces of steel to be projected off the interior wall. This fragmentation injures and kills the crew, damages the equipment and ignites the ammo, rendering the tank useless. Its also effective against buildings and reinforced structures.

350mm

The 350mm is a rocket assisted mortar utilised on the Goanna Assault Gun Carriage. Used to destroy fortifications, it is unparalleled. Fitted with audio detection, it can be used to detonate after passing through several layers, fused to explode shortly after impact, on impact or with in proximity, creating a deadly airburst.

The M1 HE shell has a hardened steel jacket with high explosive filler, and is capable of levelling reinforced structures with ease.

The M2 shaped charge round has a large HEAT warhead using an EXCALIBUR based charge with metal augmented charge, capable of breaching 4 metres of reinforced concrete and destroying the internal structure, with ease. The secondary charge induces a fuel air explosion, clearing the now breached bunker.

The M3 High Explosive Squash Head round utilises a large about of C-14 plastic explosive which on impact with a structure squashes against it, and a millisecond later, detonates, sending shock waves through the structure, usually enough to destroy large, reinforced buildings.

Missiles

The UNSC employs a wide range of missiles for engaging and destroying enemy forces at a variety of ranges, through a wide range of means. As with the UNSC's 'Active Stealth Precision' policy, all missiles have lightweight, maintenance free LIDAR/RADAR invisible paint with Infra-red suppressive laminates and cryonic bleeders to reduce the infra-red flare of the rocket motor.

Air to Ground

Air to ground missiles are employed by Strike Fighters and Gunships to engage enemy forces on the ground with high accuracy and deadly precision, allowing them to engage both infantry and vehicular targets with no indifference in deadliness. AGM missiles can be fitted with disposable chaff pods to confuse enemy defensive RADARS and other sensors and obscure their position. Most missiles use 'invisible boosters' to separate them from the launching platform by upwards of two dozen metres, then launch, to obscure the launcher's position.

AGM-76 Firefox missiles are designed for busting tanks and fortifications, using three stage motors and a mixture of jam resistant AESA RADAR with active "counter-logic" against stealth systems and infra-red imaging and logic systems for avoiding counter measures. Its warhead consists of a tandem HEAT warhead using a pair of copper layers with a squashed EXCALIBUR layer in between, formed in a trumpet shaped projectile, with a high impulse explosive behind it, with the second charge placed behind it. When the charge detonates, it accelerates the copper into a superplastic stream of molten metal, forming around a self sharpening super plastic EXCALIBUR penetrating rod, all travelling at hypersonic speeds. Behind the shaped charge is a metal augmented charge, consisting of a nanomixture mixture of flouridated aluminium and magnesium held in a super dense powder with a dispersing charge at its centre. This charge detonates and creates an intense over pressure wave and incredibly heat, melting armour, crew and setting ammunition and fuel alight. The missile is designed to identify between 'hard' and 'soft' targets, allowing it to direct its detonate its payload to bypass armour then detonate its thermobaric charge inside a target, or detonate the entire package on contact with a target, creating a high yield explosive. Its high power charges make short work of reactive and standard armour. After firing the missile no longer requires guidance. The missile has programmable mission parameters and can be guided in by laser designators, or War Net 'target tagging' as well as home in on prospective targets not displaying a IFF code or use all homing methods.

The AGM-76A Firefox was upgraded with a directional charged ion lattice preparation warhead, for a small scale charged particle burst, but it's normal payload remained unaffected. This disables active countermeasures and shields to pave the way for the main warhead.

AGM-111 Shamrock missiles are light weight fire and forget missile designed as a cheap alternative to larger anti-tank missiles. It utilises a infra-red seeker and semi-active LASER seeker, allowing it to fire on stationary targets designated by a targeting LASER. The missile uses a high impulse motor and fold out fins. The primary warhead is a EXCALIBUR augmented HEAT charge with a metal augmented secondary charge.

AGM-204 Gauntlet is a low cost self protection missile for hitting incoming missiles, sensor positions, SAM sites or AAA. Small and short ranged, they rely on speed, using a high impulse motor to reach hyper velocity immediately after launch. It is directly linked to the ships defensive systems, launching upon the target when the threat is detected, usually through a mixture of enemy RADAR lock, a LASER receiver lock, or a missile detected by the onboard threat detection systems. It is guided in using AESA RADAR, a RADAR receiver and LASER receiver to home in. The large composite thermobaric charge is often catastrophic against it's targets, with sufficient destructive power to flatten most RADAR facilities and annihilate most tanks. It can alternately be used as a RADAR homing anti-tank missile, or a anti-RADIATION missile.

The AGM-204B Gauntlet was upgraded with a charged ion lattice, for a small scale charged particle burst, but it's normal payload remained unaffected.

AGM-64 Thunderclap missiles are fire and forget missiles, using dual electro-optical/infrared sensors to track the target, assigned by the pilot. The missile boosts the hyper velocity then coasts, making only minor adjustments with the fins to stay on target and then boosts again on terminal approach. The HEAT shaped tandem charge warhead with metal augmented after affect charge can be changed upon launch, so either it explodes on contact or it explodes a few moments after contact, after the kinetic energy of the missile has buried the warhead into it's target. The Thunderclap is much more powerful than the Firefox, capable of tearing open Scarab Walkers.

The AGM-64A Thunderclap was upgraded with a charged ion lattice, for a small scale charged particle burst, but it's normal payload remained unaffected.

AGM-55 Champion Missiles are anti-radiation missiles, homing in on electronic or electromagnetic signals, using a choice of RADAR receiver or magnetic array. It can detect, attack and destroy a radar antenna or transmitter with minimal aircrew input. The proportional guidance system that homes in on enemy radar or electromagnetic emissions uses a fixed radio receiver and seeker and magnetic anomaly detector in the missile's nose. A smokeless, solid-propellant, dual-thrust rocket motor propels the missile at transonic speed. The missile's on-board software can track targets even after they've shutdown and countered with decoys, only within a medium distance though. It uses a tandem charge copper/EXCALIBUR warhead to punch into even reinforced bunkers, using a augmented charge first to cut a passage and then a larger primary charge to follow through, with a magnesium aerosol metal augmented charge to detonate inside. It can be used against stationary targets like radio antennae, RADAR facilities and against RADAR vehicles and command vehicles, being able to distinguish between a vehicle's on-board RADAR and a actual dedicated RADAR and the same with radio signals, which enables it to target command vehicles. It also has a limited air to air capability, being able to hit enemy RADAR and Radio support planes. It can also be used to home in upon radio or RADAR sources on enemy capital ships, meaning it can attack enemy RADAR and radio transmitters in space as well. If the enemy RADAR disengages before it can get a positive fix on its location, it enters loiter mode, deploying its large wings and shutting down its engine. Once the RADAR reactivates, the missile's hypersonic rocket motor kicks in and the wings retract, allowing it to home in and destroy the target.

The AGM-55A1 Champion was upgraded with a charged ion lattice, for a small scale charged particle burst, but it's normal payload remained unaffected.

AGM-87 Pallas missiles are mid ranged standoff weapons, designed to engage enemy targets out of the range of regular anti-aircraft weapons. The missile utilises a global positioning system, LASER gyroscope and a infra-red and optical nose seeker to home in upon targets. The missile maintains a hardened data link to provide a back link to the War Net, allowing external control by the launching aircraft, by ground side air controllers, AWACS systems or forward airborne reconnaissance. The missile gains weapon lock from either the onboard sensors or from any sensor assets linked to the War Net, allowing the operator to engage enemy anti-aircraft weapons before coming into visual range. The missile's warhead 1000lb HEAT penetrator. It utilises a tandem HEAT charge utilising EXCALIBUR augmented elements. Each warhead carries a metal augmented charge, consisting of a nanomixture mixture of flouridated aluminium and magnesium held in a super dense powder with a dispersing charge at its centre. The missile utilises fold out control fins for launch and presents itself as a small target, which compounded with its stealth properties make it an exceedingly difficult target. The missile has a range of 700 kilometres. It is powered by a super sonic turbofan engine.

AGM-91 Vendetta Missiles are over the horizon smart missiles, used for targeting long range targets. They use on-board advance guidance software along with satellite, aerial and ground targeting reconnaissance to home in and destroy its targets. It has on-board infra-red imagers, AESA RADAR and on-board GPS to navigate and hit its target, along with decoy detection and logic systems to determine the real target. The missile it self, after launch, deploys its wings and skims close to the ground to avoid detection at hyper velocity. The target is acquired through War Net target acquisition by satellite, forward reconnaissance or air reconnaissance, allowing an attacking aircraft to launch and hit targets prior to direct engagement. It can take variable payloads, including a dual warhead with a penetrating warhead then a fused explosive then a metal augmented charge, for anti tank and anti-bunker usage, a thermobaric warhead for flattening buildings, a solid fragmenting explosive payload for engaging large amounts of light vehicles, infantry or soft buildings, incendiary flechette dispersing munitions for engaging multiple material, light vehicle or personnel targets, severely damaging or destroying even hardened equipment, a warhead of TRIDENT encased explosively pumped-flux compressors, a charged particle burst EMP warhead later in the war, a AZRAEL style warhead utilising a trio of magnetic slugs contained in a anti-gravity field which are accelerated to a fraction of the speed of light, an airbursting charge that deploys several cluster bomblets containing sensor fused munitions, anti-cluster munitions that use have tungsten warheads and fragmenting explosives to penetrate and destroy the runway, a W709 RETRIBUTION nuclear warhead, a W910 Cataclysm anti-matter warhead, binary or unitary chemical weapon aerosol dispensers in airburst or contact detonation and biological weapon dispensers, with airbursting or contact detonation options.. These have a range of 1600 kilometres. It is powered by a super sonic turbofan engine

AGM-96 Aries missiles are long ranger, hypersonic cruise missiles designed to strike at targets across continents, or from the safety of low orbit drops. They are only carried by larger bombers and strike craft and are used to deploy high power warheads at exceedingly long ranges. The Aries uses Global Positioning System, ground reading AESA RADAR, a triple cluster of LIDAR, infra-red and telescopic optical camera to guide itself to its target location. Targets are designated from War Net either by the launch platform, forward observation or Satellite assets and the missile can be tracked in real time, with the ability to apply adjustments to its course and mission parameters en-route. The ARIES can fit a variety of modular warheads, such as a dual warhead with a penetrating warhead, fused explosive then a metal augmented charge, for anti tank and anti-bunker usage, a thermobaric warhead for flattening buildings, a solid fragmenting explosive payload for engaging large amounts of light vehicles, infantry or soft buildings, incendiary flechette dispersing munitions for engaging multiple material, light vehicle or personnel targets, severely damaging or destroying even hardened equipment, a warhead of TRIDENT encased explosively pumped-flux compressors, a charged particle burst EMP warhead later in the war, a AZRAEL style warhead utilising five magnetic slugs contained in a anti-gravity field which are accelerated to a fraction of the speed of light, an airbursting charge that deploys several cluster bomblets containing sensor fused munitions, anti-cluster munitions that use have tungsten warheads and fragmenting explosives to penetrate and destroy the runway, a W709 RETRIBUTION nuclear warhead, a W910 Cataclysm anti-matter warhead, binary or unitary chemical weapon aerosol dispensers in airburst or contact detonation and biological weapon dispensers, with airbursting or contact detonation options. These have a range of 2700 kilometres. It is powered by a X-13 Series hybrid jet engine.

AGM-207 Electromagnetic Objective Combat Utility Tactical (EMOCUT) Missile is a mid range combat missile, made using the airframe of the Thunderclap. Using laser guidance and alternately pilot designation from the pilot's RADAR, the missile homes in on its target with precision and upon impact, detonates a large compressed flux generator. This creates a intense electro magnetic pulse, with a range of twenty meters. This can disable armoured vehicles, infantry combat systems, command systems, communication systems or severely damage a shield unit. This allows the aircraft to go ahead and disable enemy vehicles, defensive positions and command structure. Despite being based on the BARB airframe, it uses a new high power motor to help carry the heavy payload, a new air-bursting fuse linked directly to the RADAR and a new targeting system.

The AGM-207A2 was fitted with a charged particle burst warhead, increasing it's effective range, lightening it and making it easier to construct.

AGM-331 Bishop Multiple Independently Targeted Vector (MITV) Missiles are a advance long range anti tank missile. The missile consists of a long range cruising missile, guided to its target by RADAR while maintaining a level altitude. It uses a nose mounted infra-red imager and its RADAR to then achieve a lock on for the ten on-board AGM-76 Firefox missiles, which are ejected then activated by a small dynamic non-explosive scattering charge, right after a prior charge has shedded the missile skin. This single missile can engage up to 10 enemy targets with lethal accuracy and potency.

AGM-553 Haymaker Multiple Independently Targeted Vector (MITV) Missiles are a scaled down Bishop missile. Instead of 10 Firefox missile, it contains 12 Shogun 102mm missiles. It cruises at high speed to its target then it uses a nose mounted infra-red imager and its RADAR to then achieve a lock on for the on-board missiles, which are ejected then activated by a dynamic non-explosive scattering charge, right after a prior charge has shedded the missile skin. This single missile can engage up to 12 enemy targets with lethal accuracy and potency.

AGM-404 Ronin missile is a 4 metre long air to ground missile, designed for preforming a variety of air-ground threat suppression missions. It's main warhead is a forward tandem HEAT charge, large enough to completely flatten main battle tanks, and crush structures. It is guided by a mixture of infra-red, RADAR, with anti-stealth capabilities, laser designation and GPS. It is hot launched from the armoured silos. It is used almost exclusively by the Hobgoblin gunship.

The AGM-404B was upgraded with a charged particle warhead, increasing it's effectiveness against ground targets.
The RGM-404 is a Ronin used on UNSC wet navy warships.
The RGM-404B was upgraded to match the AGM-404B

Air/Space Intercept

The UNSC employs a number of air and space operable air to air missiles for destroying enemy aircraft. These boost away from their launch platform, then activate, in order to mask the launch platform's position.

The AIM-11 Gorgon short range air-to-air missile (SRAAM) that uses dual electro-optical/infra-red and semi-active/active RADAR to seek out targets, accelerating to high-hypersonic speeds in atmospheric conditions, and to incredibly high speeds in space conditions. Upon contact with the target, it releases a spray of 3 flechettes at about twice the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta and filled with a explosive/metal augmented charge payload with so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target.. The missile is ultra agile with vectored nozzle thrusting, twenty control surfaces and intelligent design. It has anti-countermeasure systems to aid it in closing and destroying it's target. The missile is launched from the firing rail to align it with the aircraft's boresight, making it incredibly accurate for interception. However, for short range dogfights, it has tremendous agility, and can even be used to engage targets to the rear, so long as the launcher, or a linked vehicle has a lock on, allowing them to transmit telemetry data to the missile.

The AIM-11A Gorgon MRAAM was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where the EXCALIBUR flechettes are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high velocities.

The AIM-21 Quicksilver Short Range Air to Air Missile is a missile built on the airframe of the Gorgon. Though it uses the same seeker and warhead, it uses a much larger motor and reduced exterior control surfaces. The reduced drag on the missile combined with the more powerful motor creates an incredibly fast missile, at the cost of agility. Upon contact with the target, it releases a spray of 3 flechettes at about twice the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta and filled with a explosive/metal augmented charge payload with so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. The missile is primarily used to intercept fast moving craft that lack manoeuvrability or slow moving and vulnerable aerial targets with active countermeasures.

The AIM-21A Quicksilver SRAAM was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where the EXCALIBUR flechettes are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high velocities.

AIM-34 Copperhead Beyond Visual Range Air to Air Missile (BVRAAM) is the bigger brother to the AIM-11 Gorgon, designed to work with the AIM-11 Gorgon in a mixed load out. The Copperhead is a beyond visual range missile, meaning it can lock onto targets at excessively long ranges. It uses the RADAR of its host vehicle to achieve lock on then once launched and cruising uses its own millimetre wave RADAR to continue tracking its target and achieves optical lock with its dual electro-optical/IR seeker as soon as possible. Once it has closed in for the kill, its terminal motor activates and it switches to optical, to avoid enemy countermeasures, though the RADAR is still operable for passive detection should countermeasures defeat it. Upon contact with the target, it releases a spray of 5 flechettes at about twice the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta and filled with a explosive/metal augmented charge payload with so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target.. The missile is ultra agile with vectored nozzle thrusting, twenty control surfaces and intelligent design. It has anti-countermeasure systems to aid it in closing and destroying it's target.

The AIM-34A Copperhead BVRAAM was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where the EXCALIBUR flechettes are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high velocities.

AIM-47 Snakebite Anti Electronic Long Range Air to Air Missile (AELRAAM) is a medium range missile, built on the airframe of the Copperhead, intended to deal with interloping electronic warfare craft. The missile is near unobservable thanks to its stealth coating and cryogenic bleeders. It uses a triple method of homing, using a Jam homing antennae and a PAVE JAY array to detect ships operating high output systems in the electromagnetic spectrum, such as aircraft operating powerful RADARS, sending false RADAR signals, operating RADAR jamming or providing electronic warfare support. Once detected by the jam homing system, it uses the electro-optical/IR homing system to aid in homing in and destroy the target with a flechette warhead. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. Upon contact with the target, it releases a spray of 5 flechettes at about twice the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta and filled with a explosive/metal augmented charge payload with so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. The missile is ultra agile with vectored nozzle thrusting, twenty control surfaces and intelligent design. It has anti-countermeasure systems to aid it in closing and destroying it's target.

The AIM-47A Snakebite AELRAAM was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where the EXCALIBUR flechettes are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high velocities.

Air/Space Anti-Capital ship

ASM-13 Spectre is a missile launched by bombers than uses a two stage rocket, one for boosting away after launch and another for the terminal approach to the target. It uses infra-red scanners, active RADAR and superhetreodyne receiver aerials let it lock onto EM emissions of the target. The warhead is a forged fragment ring that is fused to explode so that it creates a lethal cloud of penetrating fragments, blowing holes in ships, damaging vital systems and depressurizing decks. after that a single EXCALIBUR penetrator rod passes through the hole made and punches into the ship. Behind this is a metal augmented charge, consisting of a highly dense flouridated aluminium/magnesium nanomixture and dispersal charge, creating an over pressure wave inside the ship that's so hot it can set fire to the internal super structure. The forged fragment explodes once inside the hull, causing more damage internally. It uses a coolant jet system to hide from enemy detection. These boost away from their launch platform, then activate, in order to mask the launch platform's position.

The ASM-13A Spectre was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where forge fragment warhead and penetrating rod were replaced by a number of EXCALIBUR large flechettes, which are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high velocities.

Surface to Air

MIM-44 Slamdunk Surface to Air Missile is a three stage air defence missile, using active and passive seeking systems such as AESA RADAR, optical, UV, IR and jam homing, all the time assisted by its launcher. The third stage is hung back for the terminal flight phase. Upon contact with the target, it releases a spray of 7 flechettes faster than the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is made with a solid nose cone of EXCALIBUR composite material and has sides of fused alloy EXCALIBUR-beta and filled with a explosive/metal augmented charge payload with so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. The sub-munitions are guided by short range telemetry information provided by the launching missile. The Slamdunk is explosively launched from it's firing platform, then activates it's motor, actively launching it without revealing the launch platform and then speeds up to high-hypersonic speeds using a pulsed rocket motor. When jettisoned from the launcher, it deploys a infra-red decoy, confusing tracking systems into observing the decoy instead of the missile threat. As well as being capable of engaging air threats within a radius of 9 kilometres of the launcher.

The MIM-44 Slamdunk SAM was upgraded with a AZRAEL-styled warhead, where the EXCALIBUR flechettes are sustained in zero gravity then magnetically accelerated by a number of batteries to high hypervelocity.

MIM-87 Harpy Anti-Ballistic Missile is a long range weapon system designed to engage threats out of visual range. The missile is extremely large and is designed to be launched from a ground position and make it to orbit, where it will deploy its kill vehicle. Utilising a ground based RADAR teamed with a dual phase infra-red/electro-optical sensor and LIDAR on the kill vehicle, it tracks targets, such as long distance fighters, ballistic missiles and similar threats and destroys them. It can be equipped with one of two kill vehicles. The first is a high accuracy and lethal kinetic-kill vehicle, designed to destroy its target on impact. Largely used against ballistic missiles and high altitude bombers, it can terminate them in the upper atmosphere and low orbit. The second kill vehicle launches to high altitude or low orbit and deploy 8 smaller missiles. This allows it to engage large missile or fighter constellations out of the range of regular surface to air missiles.

FIM-43 Ramhorn Surface to air missile is a 102mm hyper velocity, optical/AESA RADAR tracking missile designed for destroying air targets with kinetic energy. The Ramhorn is explosively launched from it's firing platform, then activates it's motor, actively launching it without revealing the launch platform. When jettisoned from the launcher, it deploys a infra-red decoy, confusing tracking systems in observing the decoy instead of the missile threat. It has a range of 5 kilometres. The warhead consists of a solid, self sharpening pyrophoric EXCALIBUR warhead and a secondary metal augmented charge.

Anti-Tank Guided Weapon

The UNSC deploys a variety of anti-tank missiles deployed from ground based launch platforms, allowing them to engage and destroy vehicles at stand off ranges. All UNSC anti-tank missiles can be fitted with chaff dispensers to confuse enemy detection systems on terminal launch.

MGM-34 Fang Anti Tank Guided Weapon is a missile that, when a target is tagged upon its infra-red scanner, it will use AESA RADAR with active "counter-logic" against stealth and infra-red sensors to home in upon the target. Possessing a large HEAT shaped tandem charge warhead with metal augmented after charge, it can puncture the armour of enemy tank and give smaller vehicles a fighting chance.

BGM-89 Venom Anti Tank Guided Weapon is a hypervelocity intelligent missile with a 11.3kg Payload and is powered by a two stage rocket. The first stage is used to blast it clear of the launcher and then steering nozzles align it with the target and then the second stage rocket accelerates it to hyper velocity. The sensor in the nose hold a infra-red imager, millimetre wave RADAR with active "counter-logic" against stealth and superheterodyne aerial allowing it to target active RADAR signals/jammers. Upon approach on a vehicle it scans it and and identifies it from the UNSC net. If it has been fired at a friendly it will abort the attack but if it is a confirmed hostile or unknown it will asses the optimum attack location and home in upon that. The warhead contains a 15 centimetre EXCALIBUR kinetic penetrating rod surrounded by ComL filler with a metal augmented charge. It is detonated just before impact, launching the rod into the vehicle. Combination of the mac 4.5 hyper velocity and the explosive launch, the rod can penetrate any armour. The missile, should it miss, has one final trick up it's sleeve. Should it miss and embed itself in a object, it will remain there as a IFF controlled land mine, using the RDX filling to create a concussion mine with deadly effect against infantry.

The BGM-89A1 Venom ATGW was upgraded with a AZRAEL styled warhead, with a single EXCALIBUR penetrator rod in a null-gravity field propelled by magnets to high velocities. When it misses and turns into a land mine, it uses a small explosive payload to achieve similar effects to it's predecessor.

BGM-41 Shogun Anti Tank Guided Weapon is a 102mm missile that is infra-red guided. When targeting a tank it will got for the hottest part of the tank, usually the vulnerable and thin engine armour. When fired it heads at the target at maximum velocity then changes it's attack profile to best match it's target, usually diving straight up then straight down on the target. It has advance logic systems allowing it to identify decoys and reject them in favour of its main target. It can be switched to a much simpler electo-optical lock, which functions simply and is resistant to jams, which also allows it to be fired in direct fire against static targets or as a mortar, similar to its main firing mode. The warhead consists of a single HEAT charge with a metal augmented charge for detonating inside the target. Even against reactive or age armour, it still retains deadly effect due to the creation of a EXCALIBUR penetrating rod.

The BGM-41A Shogun ATGW uses a AZRAEL styled warhead, with a zero gravity EXCALIBUR warhead and magnet propulsion to accelerate it to high velocities, with a tertiary HEAT and MA charge warhead to maintain explosive area of effect against targets.

FGM-42 Spirit Missile is a 102mm missile that utilizes the laser range finder on the M41B2, and the laser guides are able to "steer" the missile. Sensors detect where the infra-red laser is pointed, and in turn, wherever the laser guide is pointed, the missile will manoeuvre towards. This feature allows the missile to be manoeuvred by a soldier to avoid misses, contrary to heat-seeking missiles, which can be avoided easily by smaller vehicles and aircraft. It shares the same warhead as the SABRE.

The FGM-41A Spirit received the same upgrade as the Shogun.

Anti-Infantry Missile

The BGM-45 Light Anti-Infantry Close Engagement Rocket (LANCER) is a specialised 102mm missile launched for the shared 102mm platform for engagement of infantry in deep cover. By using direct fire or indirect 'mortar arc' fire, the missile is designed to hit and eliminate enemy infantry positions. The missile uses a choice of three detonation options set by the launcher to engage targets. It can choose between fuse detonation, detonating at designated range through LASER range finder, through audio impact detonation (designating it to impact once penetrating one or two layers using heavy warhead) which is only suitable for soft targets, such as very thin skinned vehicles, or light buildings, or point detonation designed for exploding inside foxholes or trenches, allowing it to fall straight down on top of defended position and exploding inside. The Missile has a thin explosive sheath with outside EXCALIBUR forged fragment warhead, designed to send hundreds of anti-personnel forged penetrators outwards, shredding infantry within the large kill radius. Underneath the charge is a metal augmented charge, using flouridated aluminium and magnesium around a small explosive charge to create a over pressure wave of intense heat, capable of boosting the speeds of the projectiles and devastating infantry nearby.

Anti-Heavy Walker

The MGM-2 "Improved Scarab-Slayer" Anti-Heavy Walker Missile, codenamed Thunderbolt, is designed to destroy large, heavily armored walkers such as the Covenant Scarab and the Necros Gravedigger. It can use a variety of different guidance systems, including IR, LIDAR,and GPS to locate it's targets. The MGM-2's warhead consists of a long EXCALIBUR penetrator rod and a follow through metal augmented charge to ensure the death of the walker's crew or the destruction of the walker's power core.

The MGM-2A Thunderbolt was upgraded with a new AZRAEL styled warhead and tertiary HEAT effect.

The MGM-3 Anti-Heavy Walker Missile, codenamed Lightning, is a scaled down Callisto missile for operating against super heavy walkers.

Artillery

MGM-91B Khan Cruise missile is a vehicle launched cruise missile designed to strike targets at exceedingly large distances with high accuracy. The missile uses global positioning system, infra-red tracker, optical camera, ground reading LIDAR and inertial guidance to track its current cause. It can be designated targets through the War Net by forward observation units or satellites, allowing them to call in heavy artillery support. The warhead is entirely modular, allowing for a variety of choices and armaments such as a dual warhead with a penetrating warhead, fused explosive then a metal augmented charge, for anti tank and anti-bunker usage, a thermobaric warhead for flattening buildings, a solid fragmenting explosive payload for engaging large amounts of light vehicles, infantry or soft buildings, incendiary flechette dispersing munitions for engaging multiple material, light vehicle or personnel targets, severely damaging or destroying even hardened equipment, a warhead of TRIDENT encased explosively pumped-flux compressors, a charged particle burst EMP warhead later in the war, a AZRAEL style warhead utilising five magnetic slugs contained in a anti-gravity field which are accelerated to a fraction of the speed of light, an airbursting charge that deploys several cluster bomblets containing sensor fused munitions, anti-cluster munitions that use have tungsten warheads and fragmenting explosives to penetrate and destroy the runway, a W709 RETRIBUTION nuclear warhead, a W910 Cataclysm anti-matter warhead, binary or unitary chemical weapon aerosol dispensers in airburst or contact detonation and biological weapon dispensers, with airbursting or contact detonation options. The missile has a range of 1000 kilometres.

Spaceship launched

The RSM-131C Archer missile, thoroughly modernized, is now a much more capable weapon, using a boosting warhead of nine explosively pumped flux compression generators, who unleash a burst of EMP upon impact, with the EMP yield increased greatly by the transformer like aluminium coils around them, with the rest of the warhead coated in a TRIDENT composite metal with a primary warhead of a forged fragment ring for penetrating the hull. After that the third warhead, containing a number of penetrating rods. These punch through several decks of the ship, causing serious damage. While the head is solid EXCALIBUR, the sides consist of forged fragmentation EXCALIBUR, designed to fragment and cause much more perforation of the ships internal systems when the RDX filler goes off. At the tail of the penetrating rod is a large metal augmented charge, designed to explode inside the ship and create intense over pressure waves and heat, causing immense damage, snuffing out the oxygen inside and setting fire to the super structure. The Archer is now upgraded with a number of systems to help it bypass ship defence system, such as jet coolant systems, drastically reducing its heat signature, advanced armour, mostly focusing on heat resistance, using heat resistant polymers and a titanium-aluminide heat matrix and a set of second stage boosters for a sudden burst of speed upon terminal approach. For those systems that jam Archer missiles, cutting them off from the ships that launched them, they now have infra-red sensors and millimetre wave RADAR, allowing it to home in without the launcher's assistance or use superhetreodyne receiver aerials let it lock onto EM emissions of the target. The Missile has several sub motors for manoeuvring on launch, and for additional terminal guidance. The missile is hot launched from the armoured and cooled tubes, reducing the infra-red glare of their launch.

The RSM-131D1 Archer missiles used a charged particle warhead with AZRAEL styled warhead underneath, in place of the fragmentation ring is a ring of zero gravity EXCALIBUR penetrating rods accelerated to high velocities on impact, then the third warhead is a number of larger zero gravity EXCALIBUR rods accelerated to the same speed, with a metal augmented charge after that.

RIM-13 Thorn is a ship launched anti starcraft missile. It uses dual optical and active RADAR to seek out targets, with three stage rockets. The first is the primary launch booster, the next is the cruiser booster and finally the hyper velocity booster, accelerating it to hyper velocity. Much like the Archer it is coated in ablative resin to hide its presence and jet coolants to hide it during the second stage of 'cruising'. If need be, it can home in on jamming systems, destroying enemy jamming systems. Upon nearing the target (1000 metres), it releases a spray of 13 independently powered, steerable flechettes at about twice the speed of the original missile, in a five metre spread, to ensure the target is crippled or destroyed. Each flechette is rocket powered, steerable by 10 control surfaces and filled with a explosive/metal augmented payload so it fragments within it's target. The delayed fuse is designed so it explodes within the opposing fighter, or deploys all of it's explosive firepower against a enemy shield. The warhead has sensor fusing that deploys the flechettes in the optimum attack pattern to destroy it's target. The sub-munitions are guided by short range telemetry information provided by the launching missile. The missile is highly agile and is cold launched from the weapons platform. The missile is capable of shutting off and restarting it's motors, allowing it to gently cruise and preform gradual course realignment during it's cruise, allowing it to act as a floating mine around the launching warship.

The RIM-13A Thorn traded the submunitions for AZRAEL styled fletchettes, fired at high velocities.

The RGM-145 Marksman missile is a spacecraft-launched air/space-to-ground missile for accurate orbital strikes. The missile's target is designated by the launch platform or forward observation units, utilising a variety of assets and can maintain a hardened data link through out flight, allowing them to track and adjust the missile mid flight. The warhead options include a dual warhead with a penetrating warhead, fused explosive then a metal augmented charge, for anti tank and anti-bunker usage, a thermobaric warhead for flattening buildings, a solid fragmenting explosive payload for engaging large amounts of light vehicles, infantry or soft buildings, incendiary flechette dispersing munitions for engaging multiple material, light vehicle or personnel targets, severely damaging or destroying even hardened equipment, a warhead of TRIDENT encased explosively pumped-flux compressors, a charged particle burst EMP warhead later in the war, a AZRAEL style warhead utilising five magnetic slugs contained in a anti-gravity field which are accelerated to a fraction of the speed of light, an airbursting charge that deploys several cluster bomblets containing sensor fused munitions, anti-cluster munitions that use have tungsten warheads and fragmenting explosives to penetrate and destroy the runway, a W709 RETRIBUTION nuclear warhead, a W910 Cataclysm anti-matter warhead, binary or unitary chemical weapon aerosol dispensers in airburst or contact detonation and biological weapon dispensers, with airbursting or contact detonation options. The missile is cold launched from the multi-shot silo, using a catapult launch system. Its maximum range is 1500 kilometres.

RSM-103 Wayfarer is a Tactical Weapon Platform, designed to take a variety of warheads, including nuclear, anti-matter and MIDAS warheads. The choice of warheads include W700 AVENGER, W705 VENGEANCE, W905 APOCALYPSE and W1001 APOSTASY MIDAS warheads. The missile utilises a hardened data link to the launch platform to provide most of its guidance, but in the event that data link is jammed, or comes under attack, the missile switches to its own guidance, using a mixture of AESA RADAR, LIDAR, optical telescope and infra-red to home in upon it's target. The missile is set to point detonation or airburst before launch. The commander of the launch platform first requires the Universal Detonation Key to okay a launch, and these are distributed prior to operations based on possible danger. The commander requires clearance from the battlegroup commander, who in turn requires clearance from theatre commander. However, should communication be improbable, the launch platform commander can override this and authorize a launch. The missile boosts away from the launch platform and orientates it, winding up to the full speed of the missile, before ejecting that stage of the missile then activating the one shot impulse drive. This drive accelerates the missile to high speeds, allow it to reach distant targets in minutes. After this, the engines shut down aside from the minute manoeuvring thruster and the missile essential 'goes dark'. The missile glides towards its target, making small adjustments, and utilises its RADAR absorbing paints and infra-red absorbing paints. Once on terminal approach, it detonates the final 'sprint engine' and fires a number of decoys, completely masking its position.

RSM-107 Vagrant is a Tactical Weapon Platform that utilises the same design as the Wayfarer however it mounts a small slipspace drive to activates shortly after it has cleared the launch platform. The missile glides, invisible to sensors until it comes out of slipspace, usually in the middle of a fleet, or within metres of a starship, maybe even inside larger starships and stations, should they be stationary and have sufficient internal room. The missile has an exceedingly high price increase, limiting it to only special use, usually by Prowlers and the Office of Naval Intelligence.

RSM-405 Jupiter is a Strategic Weapon Platform that takes a choice of three warheads for use against enemy targets. It can engage both atmospheric and spacial targets and has a choice of loading a W712 RETALIATION MIRV, W907 ARMAGEDDON, W766 NOVA, W1007 DEFIANCE MIRV or W1111 PANDORA'S BOX. IT shares all capabilities with the Wayfarer

RSM-408 Saturn is a slipspace enabled variation of the Jupiter Strategic Weapon Platform.

Surface to capitalship

MSM-124 Callisto missiles are missiles launched by ground installations to low orbit or atmosphere situated capital ships. The missile is essentially a upscaled Archer missile with a boosting warhead of 12 explosively pumped flux compression generators, who unleash a burst of EMP upon impact, with the EMP yield increased greatly by the transformer like alluminium coils around them, with the rest of the warhead coated in TRIDENT composite metal with a primary warhead of a forged fragment ring for penetrating the hull. After that the third warhead, containing a large number of penetrating rods covered in EXCALIBUR. These punch through several decks of the ship, causing serious damage. While the head is solid EXCALIBUR the sides of the penetrating rods are made of forged EXCALIBUR fragmenting shell, designed to fragment and cause much more perforation of the ships internal systems when the explosive/metal augmented filler goes off. The Callisto is fitted with a number of systems to help it bypass ship defence system, such as jet coolant systems, drastically reducing its heat signature, advanced armour, mostly focusing on heat resistance, using heat resistant polymers and a titanium-alluminium heat matrix and a set of second stage boosters for a sudden burst of speed upon terminal approach. For those systems that jam Archer missiles, cutting them off from the ships that launched them, they now have infra-red sensors, magnetic arrays and AESA RADAR, allowing it to home in without the launcher's assistance.

MSM-25 Avatar missiles are variants of the Callisto intended for short to mid range nuclear strikes against warships. It utilises either the W700 AVENGER nuclear warhead, ideal for destroying capital ships, or the W705/706 VENGEANCE, ideal for disabling warships. The Avatar is fitted with a number of systems to help it bypass ship defence system, such as jet coolant systems, drastically reducing its heat signature, advanced armour, mostly focusing on heat resistance, using heat resistant polymers and a titanium-alluminium heat matrix and a set of second stage boosters for a sudden burst of speed upon terminal approach.

Artillery

MSR-46 Crossbow artillery rockets are a standardised artillery rocket with mulitple warhead and guidance packages. Warhead packages include sold HE payloads, 644 dual purpose anti-infantry/anti-armour submunitions, utilising EXCALIBUR shaped charges, six Sense and Destroy Armour (SADARM) submunitions, which utilise a parachute mounted package which suspends a explosive formed EXCALIBUR penetrator tied up to a infra-red/RADAR targeting system, allowing it to target and destroy armour from the top down position, a chemical dispersing agent, with fuse settings for exploding over a target or on contact with, a Dense Inert Metal Explosive warhead for small but incredibly lethal blast radius in urban environments, BROACH tandem charge warheads for breaching and exploding within a target, thermobaric warheads with sensor fusing to allow it to explode above the ground or charged particle EMP warheads. Warheads can be fitted with fin stabilization packages for use as a extended range missile, GPS guidance packages for deployment as a short range, cost-effective cruise missile, or a infra-red seeker for anti-armour operations.

MSR-79 Calliope artillery rockets are short ranged fin stabilized artillery rockets, fired from a variety of ground vehicles. The 65mm rockets have high yield explosive warheads and designed for short range saturation fire between 500 and 100 metres. The high power rockets are relatively accurate and have a parabolic arch, allowing them to be fired from a hull down position. The high explosive warhead is moderately effective against vehicles, but serves best as an anti-structure and anti-infantry weapon, causing catastrophic damage in a small area, making it especially effective against entrenched infantry.

102mm

FSR-99C Cerberus rockets are a high speed, variable payload rocket. Choice of rockets include

  • The C1 warhead has a Explosive shaped tandem charge to create a very high-velocity jet of metal in a state of superplasticity that can punch through solid armor.
  • The C2 Thermobaric warhead consist of a container of a finely powdered solid fuel of differing particle size mixed with a low percentage of oxidizer and binder. A dynamic non-explosive scattering charge is placed in the middle of the mixture. The weapon is initiated upon firing, and the explosive charge bursts open the container and disperses the fuel in a cloud. The heat released by the oxidizer gases then helps ignite the smaller solid particles mixed with the compressed hot air behind the shock leading the blast wave. This sustains a hot environment which allows 100% fuel combustion to be achieved. If fuel particles have a size distribution, smaller particles get ignited in a short period of time,providing heat for the combustion of the larger particles. Smaller particles burn rapidly and remain tied to the local gas,while the larger particles move more freely and mix with new oxidation sources,allowing a more sustained combustion than provided by a single particle size
  • C3 HESH warheads are filled with plastic explosive and a delayed-action base fuse. On impact, the plastic explosive is "squashed" against the surface of the target, and spreads out to form a disc or "pat" of explosive. A tiny fraction of a second later, the base fuse detonates the explosive, creating a shock wave that, owing to its large surface area and direct contact with the target, conducts very effectively through the material. In the case of the metal armor of a tank, the compression shock wave conducts through the armor to the point where is reaches the metal/air interface (the hollow crew compartment), where some of the energy is reflected as a tension wave. At the point where the compression and tension waves intersect, a high stress zone is created in the metal, causing pieces of steel to be projected off the interior wall. This fragmentation injures and kills the crew, damages the equipment and ignites the ammo, rendering the tank useless. Its also effective against buildings.
  • C4 HE-FRAG warhead uses a exterior of fragmentation forged EXCALIBUR and a solid high explosive core, creating an exceedingly deadly anti-infantry effect.
  • C5 REAPER NNEMP rockets were experimental munition using a conductive outer casing, and a core made up of a lattice made up of highly charged ions. Upon detonation, the charged ions realign into a a charged particle burst, resulting in a highly effective electromagnetic blast in the surrounding 20 metre radius.

85mm

The 85mm rocket is used by the M66 Light Multipurpose Assault Weapon and features a variety of different ammunition types for anti-armour, anti-personnel and anti-structure purposes.

Rifle Launched

CARCINOGEN rocket

A bandolier of Sparrow Rockets

The FSR-78 Sparrow rifle rocket was made from a zinc-fibreglass amalgam and filled with a dense inert metal explosive, providing highly lethal, if small, blast radius against entrenched infantry. It had variable fusing, allowing for accurate air bursting over enemy targets.

The FSR-79 Breaching Rocket is a modified version of the Sparrow, with a long standoff rod and an explosive payload behind that. Fired at a door, the standoff rod detonates the explosive charge, meaning most of the blast wave affects the majority of the surface area of the door, blowing it off it's hinges.

Torpedoes

The M2 Squall Torpedo is an advanced torpedo capable of engaging enemy water-based warships at a range of up to 50 kilometres. The Squall carries 700 lb high explosive warhead, designed to fire an EXCALIBUR HEAT charge into the ship, penetrating the hull deeply and a secondary charge to deepen the breaches to make sealing impossible. The torpedo is rocket propelled and uses supercavitation to move at a speed of over 200 knots (400 kilometres per hour). The torpedo can be remotely guided by the launch platform, or set to autonomous guidance, utilising acoustic and SONAR sensors, with anti-countermeasure systems. It is carried aboard the Mako-class Frigate, Barracuda-class Corvette, Tigershark-class Ballistic Missile Submarine and Stingray-class Amphibious Assault Ship.

Slugs

Slugs

5.4mm

Used only on the M99CA1 Special Application Scoped Rifle, the 5.4mm slug is the smallest used.

The M231 Kinetic Core Penetrator (TC) utilises a Tungsten Carbide snub nosed slug. This is the most popular slug for use, having optimum penetrating power. The shape, weight and speed of the round on impact causes substantial damage through hypersonic-shock waves and super heating in the pressurised areas of the target, igniting the oxygen inside.

The M232 Kinetic Core Penetrator (DU) uses a snub nosed Depleted Uranium slug and are easily the most effective slugs, but also repeated and heavy exposure can cause illness, akin to exposure to other radioactive materials. Its made from military Staballoy. It has secondary Pyrophoric abilities.

The M233 Kinetic Splinter Munition are primarily used against enemy infantry and light vehicles. It is made up of eight individual incendiary snub nosed Tungsten Carbide slugs held together by nitrocellulose which, upon the friction heat of acceleration, is combusted. It results in a shotgun like blast that tears apart infantry and lightly armoured vehicles.

The M234 Kinetic Warhead Penetrator has a EXCALIBUR 'spitzer' cap over a tungsten slug, providing massive amounts of armour penetration with it's nanometre, self sharpening spitzer edge and has a tungsten core to provide weight. The round still causes substantial damage through hypersonic-shock waves and superheating in the target, igniting the oxygen inside, though not the same as KCP rounds. Over penetration is a serious concern with this munition.

The M235 Kinetic Penetrator Incendiary slugs use a EXCALIBUR spitzer cap with tungsten casing and a Cadmium Telluride polymer core. The munition is designed to penetrate the armour of the target, come apart and vaporize the core through the extreme forces involved in penetrating the armour. The core develops into a directed plasma jet hot enough to ignite the interior of the vehicle and blow out the inside, essentially generating a plasma after effect within a vehicle. The intense heat is hot enough to ignite a vehicle's armour and cause most of the oxygen inside to ignite, causing the very air to burn.

The M236 High Explosive Penetrator is a deadly round, ideal for eliminating infantry, enemy materiel or destroying targets with low chances of collateral. The slug possess a tungsten carbide warhead, then a secondary charge of dense inert metal explosive. This explosive charge consists of a tungsten sheath and an explosive payload resistant to both heat and shock. On impact, a spike is wedged down from the warhead into the explosive, detonating it manually. The small radius explosion is filled with a dense cloud of tungsten microshrapnel, which can shred targets and dismember anybody close to the blast radius.

  • The CBU-407/A is fitted with a Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser that allows the bomb package to extend its range and correct its inertial spin to achieve maximum dispersion for munitions. It features an laser guided gyroscope and GPS system.
  • The CBU-407/B is fitted with the Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser-Extended Range, which fits all of the above systmes and includes deployable wings to extend the range even further.

The CBU-408 Passive Attack Weapon is a 1000lb cluster bomb. The bomb uses the basic systems of the standard Quarterback bomb system, including detection, guidance and munition deployment. The bomb can fit two kinds of submunition. 3000 Tungsten flechettes, with spin stabilizing fins, or 3000 EXCALIBUR flechettes, which upon impact with the target produce pyrophoric effects. These are used to engage in anti-material operations or anti-infantry operations, especially close to vulnerable infrastructure or civilian targets. The EXCALIBUR subsystem is also effective for engaging light armour.

The CBU-410 Meteor Stand Off Dispenser is a 1000lb cluster bomb. The Meteor is ejected from the platform and then jettisons away using a internal rocket booster. The wings deploy and the bomb uses its own internal GPS, inertial guidance and infra-red seeker to guide it over the target area, or be directed by a ground or airborne platform. Once overhead, it deploys a large number of sensor fuzed warheads, using an infra-red/LIDAR tracker to identify and engage targets. The Meteor allows aircraft to engage in SEAD missions or anti-tank objectives outside of normal ranges.

The CBU-411 Comet Stand Off Dispenser is a 1000lb cluster bomb. The CBU-411 Comet Stand Off Dispenser is a 1000lb cluster bomb. The Meteor is ejected from the platform and then jettisons away using a internal rocket booster. The wings deploy and the bomb uses its own internal GPS, inertial guidance and infra-red seeker to guide it over the target area, or be directed by a ground or airborne platform. Once overhead, it deploys a large number of M320 Anti Tank Mine, M341 Anti Tank Mine, M121 Bounding Anti Personnel Mine, or BLU-77 Anti-Runway bombs, or any mixture in-between, allowing large targets at long ranges to be effectively mined.

The BLU-414 Cowboy is a 1000lb incendiary bomb. The bomb contains a highly concentrated payload of Pyrosene-VI jelly. The bomb can be fused to detonate in mid air or on the ground, at which point the Dynamic, Non-Explosive Scattering Charge scatters the jelly across a wide area before igniting it, creating a blanket of fire. This burning material flows into trenches and defences, forcing out survivors, clings to targets and suffocates or induces heat related death or debilitation in anybody still in the area. The bomb is extremely dangerous against infantry, especially those in dug in positions.

  • The GBU-414/A is a variant fitted with the Guided Attack Package, utilising a internal GPS, infra-red attack sensor, inertial guidance, new fin deployment package and control surfaces. The bomb is specially designed for accurate engagement of stationary or slow moving targets for long range.
  • The GBU-414/B is a variant fitted with Paveway guidance system, using infra-red, GPS and inertial guidance, with two sets of enhanced canards and heavy penetrating warhead.

  • The GBU-414/C is a long range bomb fitted with a Stand Off Package, featuring strap on rocket motor, modified canards at the front and back, with a sophisticated targeting system, utilising infra-red camera, LIDAR, GPS and inertial guidance, with onboard countermeasures against enemy electronic warfare, with it being capable of operating via controlled guidance or autonomously. It carries a hardened warhead and fuse setting, allowing it to be used against enemy armour, fortifications or stationary targets.

The BLU-416 Bane is a 2000lb microwave bomb. The bomb is situated around a large microwave emitter, with a 'dial-a-yield' feature to decide the power of its output prior to drop. This allows the rather complex bomb to be adjusted for varying effects. At its lower effective yields it causes intense pain in the blast radius and immediate evaporation of water outside human bodies, removing immediate water supplies. On higher yields the bomb can cause enough pain to force people to flee the blast radius from the pain and destroy exposed electronics. On its highest settings, anybody within the immediate radius of the blast is outright killed, leaving the surrounding area clean of any living target that remains unprotected. The bomb can be set to emit continuously for as long as it's battery permits, which can be up to three days or controlled by nearby assets, such as ground or air recon, command and control units or satellite control. Its yield can be increased by remote control and the data link uses a hardened uplink, to prevent it easily being hacked. The bomb is near tamper proof, with a number of high explosives designed to turn it into a fragmentation bomb should it be tampered with.

  • The DOOMSDAY Antimatter Mine a tactical antimatter mine for orbital and deep space deployment. It is layered in active camouflage and ablative coating, allowing it to be near invisible to RADAR and sight. It is coated in numerous layers of radiation absorbent materials, dissapating its radiactive signal. It is outfitted with a 1 pound antimatter bomb consisting of an antimatter orb suspended by an electromagnetic field in a vacuum chamber. The electromagnet is powered by an on-board fusion core which de-activate when the device is triggered, allowing the antimatter to come in contact with the bottom of the vacuum chamber and trigger a catastrophic annihilation reaction.

The tactical mine is used for orbital and deep space deployment. It is layered in active camouflage and ablative coating, allowing it to be near invisible to RADAR and sight. It is coated in numerous layers of radiation absorbent materials, dissipating its radioactive signal. The weapon can either be proximity armed, to explode when a ship that does respond to its IFF queries or explode upon receiving the detonation signal. The bomb utilises super-hardened casing with bands of lithium titride to increase the yield. The bomb requires a Universal Detonation Key to be inserted to arm or disarm it. The UDK consists of a coded 600 bit string that activates the bomb. On-board ships and at ground stations these keys are kept under lock and are primed to self destruct should they be compromised, usually linked up to a verbal voice command by the commanding officer or the controlling A.I..


Grenades

The UNSC uses a variety of grenades launched for hand held weaponry, for use as heavy anti-infantry and light anti-armour duties. UNSC grenades are usually fired at around at mid velocities, making the much faster than their predecessors.

Grenades

25mm

The HE shell has a copper Jacket with contact fuse RDX filler.

The HEAT shell uses a explosive shaped tandem charge to create a very high-velocity jet of metal in a state of superplasticity that can punch through solid armour. This is only useful against light vehicles.

The Thermite Shell uses a thermite compound to ignite on contact, mostly for fouling enemy equipment.

The Flare shell is used to illuminate the battlefield.

The airburst shell is one of the most common shells used, being linked to the fire control sight to explode at a predetermined distance. This makes it extraordinarily useful against infantry in defilade, detonating above their heads and ventilating them to shrapnel.

Flechette rounds utilise a collection of EXCALIBUR flechettes that fire out in a spray, shredding infantry easily.

40mm

HE shells use large amounts of RDX in their filler with a forged fragment EXCALIBUR casing, making grenades that once fired and armed, explode on contact or after a short delay fuse, and explode. They can be set to 'semi-active', wherein they don't explode on contact and switch over to a short range motion sensor/IFF interrogator, allowing it to become a short range proximity mine.

HEDP shells, much like HEAT, produce a jet of molten metal that can pierce armour on light vehicles, while providing all the effects of a HE Grenade. They can be set to 'semi-active', wherein they don't explode on contact and switch over to a short range motion sensor/IFF interrogator, allowing it to become a short range proximity mine.

HEAT shells consist of a shaped tandem charge allowing it to pierce the weaker armour on medium and even heavy vehicles.

Airburst Shells explode while still within the air, showering the ground below with shrapnel, to provide a maximum casualty radius for soldiers in cover. The distance and spray pattern is set by the linked fire control unit.

Bounding shells do not explode on contact but instead a small charge propels it into the air where it airbursts from two meters up.

Incendiary shells use pyrosene VI in a highly compressed state. When fired the primer activates and on contact, the secondary detonator spreads out pryrosense VI then the primary one detonates it, much like a Thermobaric weapon, creating a fireball that consumes the target zone.

Flechette shells are loaded with EXCALIBUR fin stabilized flechettes that shred infantry.

Incendiary Flechette shells are loaded with EXCALIBUR fin stabilized Incendiary flechettes that shred infantry.

Parachute flares shells are illuminating flares with deployable parachutes, for illuminating an area from above.

Smoke shells are grenades that can either airburst or explode on contact, delivering a coloured smoke to the target zone (either white, red, blue or yellow) and can shield or mark objectives.

The Thermite Shell uses a thermite compound to ignite on contact, mostly for fouling enemy equipment.

The REAPER shell uses a charged ion lattice warhead that rearranges itself into a charged particle burst on detonation, creating a short range EMP effect.

120mmm

The RDX Explosive Sticky Projectile is the standard ESP projectile and is stuffed with RDX, giving it a serious bang, for use demolishing soft structures, crippling soft vehicles and killing enemy infantry. It sticks to surfaces on contact using electrostatic attraction and detonates a short time later, or on command by the fire control unit, making it useful for timed detonations.

The Gertex ESP is a much more dangerous ESP round, since it is a much more volatile explosive. This can be much more destructive in all uses, if unpredictable.

The Anti-Personnel Shell is a specialised munition that once fired, becomes a landmine. Utilising remote detonation or IFF interrogation, it finds a target then explodes, in a directed spray of high explosive flechettes, capable of killing a tightly grouped squad of infantry.

The Pyrosene VI ESP, upon detonation, explodes in a violent fireball, engulf the immediate area in a fireball. Useful against 'soft' targets, open topped vehicles, soft vehicles and flammable material.

The Thermite ESP packs a large amount of thermite, immediately melting the surrounding area upon detonation, making it useful in destroying enemy equipment at range, fouling enemy vehicles or use of soft targets.

The Tracer ESP works like any other ESP by detonating some time after sticking but instead of exploding violent, it emits an encoded signal that can be tracked.

The Flare ESP, upon detonation, projects a bright flare, providing some illumination or target marking.

The Smoke ESP projects a smoke screen, with varying colours depending upon the type, upon detonation.

The REAPER shell uses a charged ion lattice warhead that rearranges itself into a charged particle burst on detonation, creating a short range EMP effect.

Shotgun Shells

Shells

8 Gauge

00 Buckshot is the standard ammo for most shotguns, using 15 8.4mm EXCALIBUR balls to perforate the body.

Slugs are a rare, solid EXCALIBUR shell with copper coating, a snub nose and fins to stabilize them in flight. They have deep penetration though are inaccurate.

Darts are an advancement on the slug, using a copper coating, lead filling and a EXCALIBUR penetrating rod, like a oversized AP round.

Flechettes are several dozen fin stabilized EXCALIBUR flechettes. The Flechettes consist of a arrowhead shaped tip and four stabilising fins. The flechettes are made from EXCALIBUR, with numerous fragmentary barbs that are held on by EXCALIBUR resin aggregates, that splinter off and develop pyrophoric capabilities.

FRAG-8 is a folding fin micro fragmentation bomb with a ComL core and forged fragment casing 3 meter primer.

HE-8 is a folding fin micro high explosive ComL bomb with a 3 meter primer.

HEAP-8 is a folding fin micro high explosive armour piercing with a shaped charge 3 meter primer.

Weapons of Mass Destruction

The UNSC utilises a variety of weapons of mass destruction for both offensive and defensive. Following 'nuclear shoot-outs' in the Interplanetary War, nuclear arsenals were a simple requirement. With viral, nuclear and chemical terrorist attacks in the Inner Colony Wars and the Insurrection, a 'Proliferation Armament' was maintained to simple frighten the colonies into never attempting WMD attacks on the UNSC. However, during the Great War, this arsenal proved useful, allowing the UNSC to delay Covenant advances through nuclear and chemical arsenals by years, maybe decades and accounted for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Covenant soldiers, and maybe even more Covenant civilians.

Nuclear Warheads

W700 AVENGER Nuclear Warhead are the primary nuclear arsenal carried by warships, replacing older SHIVA warheads. These are designed for maximum effect against enemy warships. They use a single fusion warhead with fission starter warhead warhead in a Lithium Triteride ring to boosts its explosive fire-power. The warhead is further wrapped in a Karlson-Hughs sphere, designed to increases its electromagnetic effect though keep it more locally contained along with making it fade into background radiation much quicker. This allows it to be much more harmful to vessels in the area of effect and more beneficial to the attacking fleet. It has a variable 20-90 megaton yield, enabled by programming prior to launch (and can be corrected mid flight). The warhead is optimized for maximum yield in the vacuum of space.

W705 VENGEANCE Nuclear Warheads are primarily used in disabling enemy vessels for capture or pursuit. The missile uses a minimal fusion warhead that's kicked started by a directed explosive in a Karlson-Hughs sphere, maximizing its electromagnetic potential. This can render even a shielded cruiser dead in the water but it has little area of effect, only 3km, though only one direct hit is needed to render a ship inoperable, and most modern cruisers of this size can reboot their systems in under an hour. The bomb's electromagnetic payload can been optimised for detonation in both atmosphere and space. The dialable warhead allows control of the radius, and level of effect within radius.

  • The W706 VENGEANCE was a replacement fielded later in the war, utilising a super massive charged particle warhead, providing a similar yield without associated radioactivity.
TANGLEWOOD

A RETRIBUTION nuclear warhead detonating

W709 RETRIBUTION Nuclear Warheads are the primary missile ordnance for firing at ground positions. The nuclear weapon is designed for maximum thermonuclear effect over things such as radiation or electromagnetic effect. Primarily designed for destroying enemy strongholds of little strategic use to the UNSC, as 'scorched Earth' technique, a weapon of denial to stop the enemy from gaining a strategic location or item in the face of intangible odds and as a a weapon to use against oncoming enemy armies, primarily against their base camps. The weapon also saw use in a air-burst role, attacking enemy Lander vessels and low flying capital ships. It is launched from a specialized cruise missile with inertial guidance, GPS and optical camera for remote guidance over a near unbreakable data link. The weapon has a variable payload of 10 kilotons to 250 kilotons, programmed prior to loading. It can be launched by UNSC bombers or interdictors.

W711 REVENGE Neutron Warheads are nuclear missiles designed to minimize 'destruction' potential in exchange for releasing mammoth amounts of radiation, aiming to kill or disable local forces in the blast. The radiation is short lived though, resulting, with the use of Scrubbers, of the area being irradiated for a month at least. The REVENGE utilises a unshielded fusion warhead with LASER induced 'kick-start'. The warhead has dialable yields allowing it to spread radiation from a 100 metre airburst across a encampment, city or county area.

W712 RETALIATION Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicle is a multi-warhead system designed for striking multiple targets. Intended for destruction of a whole entire continent. The weapon contains six warheads that split up just after atmospheric entry and then home in on individual targets for destruction. These can also be used on oncoming enemy fleets, with each warhead targeting a different warship or different points on each warship. The MIRV units are W700 warheads, with the same weapon features.

W766 NOVA Nuclear Warhead consists of a cluster of nine fusion warheads encased in a lithium triteride case. When the warheads are activated, the lithium triteride shell focuses the blast in upon itself, multiplying the destructive power a hundredfold. This produces a nuclear explosion capable of taking out planets, or entire fleets. In the history of the bomb, few have been used. A handful were used during the fall of Reach, being taken by the Covenant to investigate, only to blow up in their face, though a few since went missing during the war. In the post war period, two were used to eradicate the Flood outbreak and since then, only one more has been used in combat, against the Remnant.

RETALIATION nuke

two warheads from a RETALIATION Multi-Warhead Nuclear Missile strike targets on a planetary surface

W716 REPRISAL Tactical Nuclear Missile is a 200mm Nuclear warhead that can be launched from a infantry held launcher. the missile has a relatively clean blast zone, resulting in maximum saturation of damage to a target zone then safety for following attacking units. It has a 1.5 kilometer blast zone. The warhead is a explosive induced fusion warhead and has a programmable yield from 10 to 40 kilotons.


W715 VINDICATOR Nuclear Bomb is a handheld nuclear 'hand grenade'. The bomb uses a explosive induced fusion reaction. It is a digitally controlled dial a yield to set the explosive yield at between five and twenty kilotons. The nuclear bomb is cased in Karlson-Hughs sphere with Lithium Titride inner layer, boosting the small weapons explosive yield. It has a blast radius of 1.5 kilometers. The entire bomb is usually wrapped up in a M1001 VINDICATOR Medium Fusion Destructive Device package, carrying a hardened casing to protect and boost the yield, carrying points and a hardened digital interface to allow it to be armed, the yield to be set and detonation feature to be set, choosing between timer, remote data link or manually detonation. The activation password is a ten line string dictated by Strategic Weapon Command and has no external digital inputs, preventing regular hack attempts, as well as anti-tampering systems. Even then, the bomb requires a Universal Detonation Key to be inserted to arm or disarm it. The UDK consists of a coded 600 bit string that activates the bomb. On-board ships and at ground stations these keys are kept under lock and are primed to self destruct should they be compromised, usually linked up to a verbal voice command by the commanding officer or the controlling A.I..

Anti-Matter

Antimatter detonation

An APOCALYPSE antimatter detonates on a planetary surface.

  • W905 APOCALYPSE Single Warhead Antimatter Bombs are devastating antimatter bombs, consisting of a piece of antimatter suspended in a vaccuum chamber by an electromagnet. When in storage, the antimatter missile's electromagnet is connected directly to a nuclear power plant or ship's power supply. When on board a bomber or heavy fighter spacecraft, the missile's electromagnet is powered by a battery with a life of 24 hours. If the battery dies or is destroyed, as it is when the missile impacts the target, the antimatter piece will fall to the bottom of the vaccuum chamber and contact the matter of the vaccuum chamber, causing a massive explosion (100 times the power of a hydrogen bomb when one pound of antimatter is contained within a warhead) in a reaction known as annihilation, which converts 100 percent of the antimatter and matter's mass into energy. The warhead is optimised for detonation in a vacuum, increasing its effectiveness. APOCAYLPSE warheads are rarely used because of their power, but when they are deployed, the target is usually an absolutely massive ground target like a major city or large capital ship, like a carrier, supercarrier, dreadnought, or super-dreadnought. The bomb requires a Unique Detonation Key to be inserted to arm or disarm it. The UQDK consists of a coded 600 bit string that activates the bomb. On-board ships and at ground stations these keys are kept under lock and are primed to self destruct should they be compromised, usually linked up to a verbal voice command by the commanding officer or the controlling A.I.. These keys are tracked and carried by members of the Strategic Weapon Command, due to the special nature of the warhead.
  • R907 ARMAGEDDON Multi-Warhead Antimatter Bombs is a multi-warhead missile designed for striking multiple targets. Intended for destruction of a whole entire continent. The weapon contains six warheads that split up just after atmospheric entry and then home in on individual targets for destruction. These can also be used on oncoming enemy fleets, with each warhead targeting a different warship or different points on each warship. The MIRV units are W905 warheads, with the same weapon features. The UNSC has never had to deploy one. The bomb requires a Unique Detonation Key to be inserted to arm or disarm it. The UQDK consists of a coded 600 bit string that activates the bomb. On-board ships and at ground stations these keys are kept under lock and are primed to self destruct should they be compromised, usually linked up to a verbal voice command by the commanding officer or the controlling A.I.. These keys are tracked and carried by members of the Strategic Weapon Command, due to the special nature of the warhead.
  • W910 CATACLYSM Antimatter Warheads are devastating missiles armed with scaled down W905 APOCALYPSE antimatter warhead, consisting of a piece of antimatter suspended in a vacuum chamber by an electromagnet. When in storage, the antimatter missile's electromagnet is connected directly to a nuclear power plant or ship's power supply. When on board a bomber or interdictor spacecraft, the missile's electromagnet is powered by a battery with a life of 24 hours. If the battery dies or is destroyed, as it is when the missile impacts the target, the antimatter piece will fall to the bottom of the vacuum chamber and contact the matter of the vacuum chamber, causing a massive explosion (100 times the power of a hydrogen bomb when one pound of antimatter is contained within a warhead) in a reaction known as annihilation, which converts 100 percent of the antimatter and matter's mass into energy. CATACLYSM missiles are used to destroy large ground targets such as bases and cites as well as space targets such as orbital platforms or large capital ships, like a carrier, supercarrier, dreadnought, or super-dreadnought. CATACLYSM missiles mounted on I-660 Spear interdictors were used to great effect by Ross East Jr. of the UNSC Air Force in the destruction of a particularly infamous Necros super-dreadnaught know as "The Thing That Should Not Be". The bomb requires a Unique Detonation Key to be inserted to arm or disarm it. The UQDK consists of a coded 600 bit string that activates the bomb. On-board ships and at ground stations these keys are kept under lock and are primed to self destruct should they be compromised, usually linked up to a verbal voice command by the commanding officer or the controlling A.I..

Biological

  • VB-6 Have Blue is a biological agent consisting of a aerosol based viral agent, of extreme hardiness that is capable of surviving in a wide variety of environments. It is designed to target and kill specific animal breeds, based on the Virus sub-type. It produces severe respiratory problems inside animal breeds and kills them in 24-36 hours. The contagion is highly infectious to more animals of the same species, passing through wastes and aerosol droplets in sneezes, and can be carried unaffected by humans and other animals. The virus is 'hard wired' to prevent it from potential mutation and has a 'termination point', at which the entire strain will die out, become infertile after so many generations and being incapable of reproducing. The VB-6 can be adjusted to target specific animal groups, such as chickens, turkeys, cows, sheep, moa and pigs, without risk of the virus jumping species.
  • VB-8 Blast Black is a biological agent designed to affect a variety of vegetation with caustic wasting dieases that destroy crops. The agent can be targeted to aim a variety of fruits, vegetables, wheat, barley, rice and so forth, causing massive devastation and famine, potentially starving a population into submission. Later generations have been engineered to effect Covenant species crops too. The contagion is highly infectious to spreading as spores, and can be carried unaffected by humans and other animals. The virus is 'hard wired' to prevent it from potential mutation and has a 'termination point', at which the entire strain will die out, become infertile after so many generations and being incapable of reproducing.
  • VB-11 Violet Star was a engineered virus designed to incapacitate a population through non-lethal means. The virus deployed is a heavily modified flu virus, which is engineered to be incredibly hardy and capable of surviving in a wide array of environments. It is deployed in aerosol form by vehicles, especially effective during rain, but it can also be sprayed as an aerosol can in public places, introduced to the food or water supply or injected into the air conditioning units of buildings or subways. The virus incapacitates a target with fatigue, nausea, mild diarrhoea (Though this feature is variable and can be tuned out to protect against dehydration in colonies where water is not widespread), sneezing, coughing and fever. This is very rarely fatal but often knocks the fight out of a population, allowing a armed force to march in with HAZMAT equipment and the vaccine. The virus can't leap and is controlled by a 'termination' gene, causing the virus to die out after so many generations. The virus is engineered so it is incapable of mutation and highly resistant to vaccines. The virus can be spread through human waste, aerosol droplets in sneezes and coughs and on animals. The virus has a gestation period of one day and can effect targets for up to three weeks, allowing even a large city to be rendered under an epidemic.
  • VB-16 Blue Seal is a extremely lethal virus engineered during the war to kill Covenant leader castes, in an attempt to render the Covenant leaderless and in disarray. The virus causes extreme respiratory problems and kills its target in under two days. The virus is engineered to be incredibly hardy and capable of surviving in a wide array of environments. It is deployed in aerosol form by vehicles, especially effective during rain, but it can also be sprayed as an aerosol can in public places, introduced to the food or water supply or injected into the air conditioning units of buildings or subways. The virus can't leap and is controlled by a 'termination' gene, causing the virus to die out after so many generations. The virus is engineered so it is incapable of mutation and highly resistant to vaccines. The virus can be spread through waste, aerosol droplets in sneezes and coughs and on animals. The virus was engineered for Elites at first, then Brutes, then a strain engineered to affect Prophets.
  • VB-19 Foxhound is a extremely lethal virus engineered to hunt a specific target. The virus is engineered to respond only to a certain DNA code, being completely harmless to the entire population, par the target. The virus causes extreme respiratory problems and kills its target in under two days. The virus is engineered to be incredibly hardy and capable of surviving in a wide array of environments. It is deployed in aerosol form by vehicles, especially effective during rain, but it can also be sprayed as an aerosol can in public places, introduced to the food or water supply or injected into the air conditioning units of buildings or subways. The virus can't leap and is controlled by a 'termination' gene, causing the virus to die out after so many generations. The virus is engineered so it is incapable of mutation and highly resistant to vaccines. The virus is used almost exclusively to kill defectors, rogue agents and rebel leaders, providing they can get a DNA sample to use.
  • VBA series is a series of genetically engineered animals designed to spread an attached virus as a vector into the general population. Animals used include the mosquito, cockroach, the rabbit and the rat. These animals are injected with quantities of the virus and the capabilities to spread them, such as through waste, sneezing and on their carcasses. These animals are engineered with a termination gene so after so many generations, they become infertile and die, leaving little to no evidence of their existence, or the spread of their diseases. They are engineered to be incredibly resistant to pet control chemicals.
  • VBAB series is a series of engineered animals consisting of swarming pests, such as locusts, designed to eliminate the food supply of a colony though a non-traceable mean. The swarming creatures are engineered with a termination gene to cause the species to become infertile after so many generations and die out. The series is engineered to be highly resistant to pest control methods.

Chemical

  • VX-8 Nerve Gas is a extremely lethal nerve gas that is capable of incapacitating then shortly after killing its targets. The gas is stored as a binary agent which is harmless on its own, but once they two liquids are mixed and added to the aerosol, it becomes extremely lethal. The gas is deployed as a aerosol from dispensers or air bursting ordnance or through more covert dispensers. When droplets make contact with the skin, they soak through and begin immediately effecting the target. When breathed in, they have the same effect. Early symptoms include loss of breath, tightness in the chest and muscle twitches, before passing onto full blown loss of motor control then death. The gas can be engineered to remain active for a number of hours after contact with air, then become inert, and has the option of being mixed with blistering agent to penetrate sealed HAZMAT suits. The VX-8 has been engineered to also be effective against Necros. Light doses kill in under five minutes and even then, the chances of severe neurological damage are high. Large doses will kill in one minute.
  • Narcozine gas is deployed as a fail safe weapon in strategic military facilities, in case of infiltration or breach. The two binary agents are mixed with an aerosol and injected into the breached zone, which is sealed. These protected zones usually consist of high level military facilities, such as areas containing sensitive information or personnel, but are still expendable, bulkheads prior to important facilities such as the HIGHCOM command room in the Hive, or the A.I. storage chamber at the HIVE, or indeed before Odin's Eye on the UNSC Point Of No Return. Narczoine gas causes paralysis and pulmonary edemas, creating swelling of fluid in the lungs, causing death from drowning. The gas can be engineered to remain active for a number of hours after contact with air, then become inert.
  • DX gas is used as a low level defence of sensitive areas against potential intruders. It is often used around mid-sensitive information or close to sensitive personnel. The gas deploys and within one minute can cause loss of motor control then loss of conciousness, allowing for a controlled, relatively safe collapse. It is often used to apprehend the intruder safely, allowing ONI to recover potential intruders and spies. The gas can be engineered to remain active for a number of hours after contact with air, then become inert.
  • CX Gas is a relatively simple tear gas used in riot control. The gas is deployed as an aerosol, usually from grenade projectiles and causes severe irritation in affected targets, such as eye irritation, causing the instinctive shutting and tearing up of eyes, coughing, burning sensations in the throat and nose and restricted breathing. Once away from the gas, effects wear off and leaving no lasting damage. The gas can be engineered to remain active for a number of hours after contact with air, then become inert.
  • BX gas is a unitary agent deployed from bombs, artillery and missiles and is a highly effective incapacitating agent. It utilises psychoactive chemicals to cause disturbances in conciousness, delusions, hallucinations, disorientation, loss of co-ordination and eventually loss of consciousness. This is often used in built up areas to defeat enemy strong points without use of high explosive weapons, or used against dug in enemies in close proximity to civilians. The gas can be engineered to remain active for a number of hours after contact with air, then become inert.
