[PAM-L] (Portable [Avalanche] Missle Launcher)?
[LS-ATW] (Lone Soldat Anti-Tank weapon)?
The "RL" is the soldiers version of the [Avalanche] missile launching system. Positive features are better handling, and High damage, along with a limited degree of accuracy. Major flaws are low rate of fire, and being extremely heavy for its single user. Depending on the ammunition been used, the "RL" produces damage of varing degrees, ranging from explosive to incendiary, it is recommended in situations where the delivery of maxium force outweighs that of other conventional weapons.
[FE/CE] (Focused Explosive/Controlled Explosive)
This warhead is built for those who need a confined explosion radius. Depending on the thickness of the alien armor, this warhead has been known to do little damage to the heavily armoured alien variant. Please note that this missile is not recommended for combating multiple targets simultaneously.
[HE] (High Explosive)
Basically a miniature version of our aircrafts [Avalanche] missile. The warhead is integrated with a much smaller quantity of RDM compound. It is best suited in combat against grouped targets and/or heavily armoured aliens. Be advised, unlike human structures, the HE missile has been ineffective against ufo exteriors.
This warhead is comprised of condensed napalm, Best used on aliens with particulary weak resistance to flame, it is also useful for creating protective barriers between you and hostile forces. Please consider that some governments may frown apon a total scorched earth policy.

Drummerboy:"[Avalanche]..what? Are you trying to tell me that some guy decided to rip a missile launcher off a plane, then redesign it so that a single soldier like me, can lug it around and blow sh@t up?"
RustedSoul:"it's a little more complicated then that, but basically yes"
Drummerboy:"SWEET! I can't wait to try it...so um, what are you wearing?"

Since 1970, the TOW (Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire command-link guided) weapons system has been Earth's leading design in anti-tank warfare. Due to the fact that it either requires a 2-3 man team or vehicle attachment for operation, most military organizations have deemed it inefficient for use by special forces, and sought alternatives such as the RPG-7, LAW & SMAW. In November last year, a German scientist named Hans Steiner began development of the "LS" (Lone Soldat) Tank Destroyer. Using the technological advances found in the [Avalanche] missile system as a guideline, Hans set the TOW as the base for his design, modeling both the missile and launcher to cater specifically for infantry to ground warfare. The "RL" has since developed into earths finest "LS" anti-tank weapon. With its existence becoming more renowned, the RL becomes increasingly sought after by Military forces, sending its price value soaring. To further benefit from the market price, manufacturers in Germany limit production, making it harder to acquire. Because of this marketing strategy, only government funded military organizations are able to afford this device, leaving most right winged militant and potential terrorist groups longing.
Being 1m in length, its stainless steel structure gives it a rugged endurance that protects most of the electrical componets, such componets are the "free-floating, light amplification scope with intergrated AIMBOT". Operation is fairly simple, the user places the missile into the rear of the tube, the missile is then locked into place with small spring operated preasure plates. Once the trigger is pulled an electro circuit is completed, releasing these wedges and igniting the rocket propellant. The rocket then travels unhindered down the 150mm tube.
At the missiles forefront sits the preasure detonator somewhat isolated in a depleted uranium housing. The detonator becomes active 1.3 seconds after launching. Behind this detonator sits the selected compound (FE,HE,INC). Vacuum sealed in the Fuel compartment is a large quantity of the metallic element rubidium. Once the elctro circuit has been completed, air fills the fuel compartment causing the rubidium to ignite.
"I've spent all day patching wounds i've never seen before, some of the wounded tell me that they'd be dead if Corporal Benson had'nt saved them. He apparently placed an incendiary round of some sort, into an Alien infested house..he managed to kill 3 civilians by doing so...shame." -Senior Medical staff (Britney Cox)
"I took out six of those damn greys with one shot, All dug in wasting my platoon, heck we'd all be dead if i did'nt nuke'em. It was just so easy, aim, pull the trigger, BOOM... no more problem. How the heck was i suppose to know that people were in there." -Corporal Jay.T Benson (Retired)
"Because of Corporal Bensons blatent disregard for saftey procedures, he has unnesessarily taken the lives of civilians. Field reports indicate that use of the FE missile could have adverted these casualties. As a result, I have removed Corporal Benson from active duty, and from now on, he will be fighting this war from the saftey of his own home. I only hope that recent threats to government funding, do not cost us this war" -Base Personnel Manager
