MPTL-2a Mobile Proton Torpedo Launcher (1)

The MPTL-2a is an improved version of the slower and more vulnerable MPTL-2 used early in the war. The Rebel Alliance enjoys substantial support from Loratus Manufacturing, so the company accommodates design alterations requested by the Rebels. Although the Alliance military prefers fast-moving armored Vehicles over tracked artillery, the offensive punch of the MPTL-2a's nine Fire-Lined Proton Torpedo Launchers makes it ideal for supporting large-scale assaults. The launcher must open its armored shell and deploy to a secure position before firing, and its targeting is limited to forward firing. Though it deploys rapidly (Two Full-Round Actions), the launcher must rely on infantry and other units to provide close support. However, this is not always a problem, because the MPTL-2a can strike targets up to 20 km away with the use of spotters and LV-38 Longvision Spotter/Probe Droids. Without a spotter, the MPTL-2a's range is limited to line or sight or manual programming (Use Computer DC 20 or DC 25 if not proficient in Heavy Weapons).
