Long Range Missile(s) are semi-guided, that means they are NOT fire-and-forget. They will lock on to the target, but that doesn't mean the actual missiles will home directly to it. After being fired, they use their minimum range to gain altitude, arm and curve to the target which needs to be active until impact.
- Use of the Artemis IV FCS and subsequent ammunitions, will narrow the AOE by focusing the flight paths of the missiles.
- Target Aquisition Gear or NARC Beacon helps too
- A trade-off between gameplay and staying true to the BattleTech canon. The chance of missing is part of LRM gameplay.
