|This missile, a LAUNCH PAD original, is based on early rail- launched ship defense systems. In practice, it
would be a short-range, highly maneuverable interceptor (note the large guidance fins), capable of downing
any attacking aircraft or even other missiles that threaten its host ship. The domed nose would house an
active radar transmitter/receiver which, once locked onto a target, would make the Perseus unshakable
until it closed in for the kill. A proximity fuse would then trigger the high explosive fragmentation warhead.
