Guided missiles,[1] also known as tanksmasher rockets,[2] were a type of missile effective against stationary or slow-moving targets on terrain where blaster weapons were unusable due to a lack of clear lines of sight,[1] with a single warhead being capable of destroying an Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry or an All Terrain Tactical Enforcer.[3] They were most effective at ranges less than a kilometer and followed deliberately swerving, evasive trajectories.[1] The IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tank was equipped with two racks of missile launcher pods on either side of its head, each carrying 15 guided missile warheads[3] that left behind a trail of black exhaust when fired.[4]
