Plasma torpedoes are not true missiles, they are balls of superheated gas kept together in a magnetic container.

Having no guidance system, plasma torps travel in straight line until the magnetic container collapses under the tremendous heat, and the torpedo dissipates.

Being a dumb-fire weapon, the Plasma torpedo is very cheap, costing only 10 Cr each.

Plasma torps are sold almost everywhere.

Plasma torpedoes do not have a guidance system to scramble and no other sensitive electronics, so ECM has no effect on them.
