Overview

At 10 tons, the LRM 20 is the largest of the Long Range Missile family. Its indirect fire allows support 'Mechs to pummel the enemy from safe distances. The LRM 20 is capable of heavy damage at range but the large number of missiles fired at once means ammunition shortages are fairly common. An LRM's minimum range is 180m, below which the damage decreases to nearly nothing at point blank range. The LRM 20 is subject to Heat Scaling

Artemis

The Artemis IV FCS upgrade increases the tracking strength and decreases the lock down time by 50%. However, each launcher requires an extra critical space and 1 extra ton for the Artemis control system this makes Artemis on multiple smaller launchers less tonnage efficient than on a single larger launcher.
