Overview

At 5 tons, the C-LRM 20 is the largest of the Clan Long Range Missile family. Its indirect fire allows support 'Mechs to pummel the enemy from a safe distance. The C-LRM 20 is capable of heavy damage at range but the large number of missiles fired at once means ammunition shortages can be fairly common. An LRM's minimum range is 180m, below which the damage decreases to nearly nothing at point blank range. The C-LRM 20 is also subject to Heat Scaling.

ECM

While ECM makes the effective use of LRMs slightly more difficult, it is possible. If you are alone with an ECM equipped foe, staying within 181 and 200m will allow you to use your weapons with lock. If you have a TAG spotter, as long as they are at least 181m from the target and maintain the tag on the target, you will have your target. If you have a PPC spotter, you have your target as long as they keep the ECM disabled.

IS Comparison

Clan LRMs have several differences from their Inner Sphere counterparts.

  • They fire in a stream rather in groups of however many missiles there are tubes for.
  • Clan LRMs will still do damage even if the target is within the 180 meter minimum range. However, damage decreases off as the target get nearer.
  • Clan LRMs do more damage per missile and generate more heat.
  • Clan LRMs also require fewer Critical Slots and weigh less.
