Guided missiles 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, with a single warhead being capable of destroying an Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry or an All Terrain Tactical Enforcer. They were most effective at ranges less than a kilometer and followed deliberately swerving, evasive trajectories. 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 that left behind a trail of black exhaust when fired.
