I'm currently proofreading the rocket launcher CT, and I'd like to propose making all missile systems use "amorphous tungsten" tips as detailed in Dan2's version of the missile defense facility CT. In that text, Dan2 asserts that uranium warheads were banned after the Gulf Reformation Wars due to ecological concerns. I'd like to establish his reasoning as canon and change the relevant CTs to reflect the alteration.
These are the texts that would be affected:
Sidewinder Light Missile
Titan Heavy Missile
The current Pistol, Light Rifle, and Heavy Cannon CTs don't mention uranium/tungsten, but future versions would also be affected by my proposition.
By the way, do you think we'll need Pistol Clip, Light Rifle Clip, and Heavy Cannon Clip texts? If not, we should mention the clips in their respective weapon CTs.
This is for consistency and simplification purposes. To my chagrin, the toughest part about proofreading is ensuring consistency! Opinions?
Perhaps there might also be room for a new X-net CT available from the start: Missile Weapons Systems. This CT would describe the parts of a functional missile system (propulsion, explosive charge, the tip, the launcher), a bit of the history and evolution of the weapons' design, the differences between soldier and craft versions, and possible targeting systems.
