Rocket Launchers

Recommended Posts

I re-watched SST two days back and I noticed that the rockets they use to deliver nukes have no backblast at all. On Klendathu, there's a case where a dude is literally sitting in front of fifty people and shoots. 

 

It actually seems like the rocket launcher they use functions a lot like a PIAT but the rocket does a lot of the targeting afterwards.

i'd say having backblast is a good way to make players exercise caution when dealing with rockets, otherwise it'd be a simple point and shoot kinda thing, with nothing to worry about.

you also have to consider starship troopers was a campy sci-fi movie and delivering a realistic depiction of the MI's gear wasn't at the top of verhoeven's agenda.

 

i mean as far as recoilless rifles go, that energy from the blast has to go out somewhere
