Hunter-Hawking HMX-10 Military Smart Missile (Military Missile G1)
Pteradyne Tech, Weapons Division introduces the Hunter-Hawking HMX-10 Military Smart Missile, better known as Military Missile G1. It is an enhanced hardened missile originally developed exclusively for the Galactic Navy and the GalCop police forces. If the missile is affected by ECM the intelligent S&D guidance system will seek nearby Thargoids or pirates, otherwise, the behavior is like a standard hardened missile.
After the development of the Hawking HMX-11 Military Smart Missile, GalCop voided the restrictions so that this weapon could be offered on the open market as well.
The Military Missile G1 is solely the work of Wyvern, my only modification was to add a manifest for the expansion manager.
This OXP was developed for Oolite V 1.72 and since the author Wyvern didn't apply any license we are not able to maintain or improve it for later versions. If you are interested in an up-to-date ship of this kind we suggest installing Military Missile G2.
Installation of OXZ file: move or copy it into your AddOns folder.
Installation of original archive: After unzipping, you need to rename the folder "Military_Missile_1.02" to "Military_Missile_1.02.oxp" and then move or copy it into your AddOns folder. Where that resides depends on your Oolite installation.
No licenses available.
Hawking HMX-11 Military Smart Missile (Military Missile G2)
The Hawking HMX-11 Military Smart Missile, also known as Military Missile G2, is the next generation of the Hunter-Hawking HMX-10 Military Smart Missile. While faster, more resistant to ECM, and with an extended array of targets it got a major flaw, the intelligent S&D guidance system could be modified and turned against the creators. While, once again, originally sold exclusively to Galactic Navy and the GalCop police forces the founding of "System Guard Navies" expanded the market to trusted local navies and police forces as well.
Needless to say that after the flaw became public knowledge corrupted navy and police members made a fortune by selling these missiles on the black market. Criminal hackers modified the targets so the guidance system searched for police or hunters instead of pirates. This weapon could be found at independent or "sleazy" locations, usually, they are sold as Hacker HMX-11 Military Smart Missile.
The Military Missile G2 is an improved version of the work of Wyvern, all credits, therefore, belongs to him.
The original Military Missile G2 could only be purchased at a Navy SecCom Station and therefore require Galactic Navy to be installed. If you chose the career of a criminal you can find the hacked version once in a while in systems with an unstable government or at independent and "sleazy" locations.
In stable government systems with money the police forces are usually mainly equipped with the Military Missile G2 while heavily armed pirates and assassins (pirate-interceptor for example) sometimes use the Hacker HMX-11 Military Smart Missile.
