Blast radius - damage falls off lineary to 0 from explosion center.
Missile types: D - Dumbfire, G - Selfguided, R - Remote controlled.
All guided missiles have the attribute "retarget": if the current target is destroyed, the missile will start tracking nearest enemy.


Missiles in flight can be destroyed (but not targeted) by other weapons. Some fighters may damage themself by launching a missile and immediately detonating it by their own or incoming weapon fire; similarly Skunk missiles may detonate near Skunk (damaging it) if launched while under enemy fire. Interesting thing is that missiles can't damage asteroids or cargo containers (not crates!); however they may destroy the locks on lockboxes, leaving their contents (crates) vulnerable to further missile or other AoE fire [unsure about booby-trapped lockboxes - needs checking - Snafu]

Note that even guided missiles will often miss their target repeatedly when fired against a skilled pilot, due to extreme fighter manoeuvrability and the pilot's ability to boost.


*Constrictor missiles are interesting. They will disable an engine cluster (/not/ all engines in the case of (eg) OL ships) disabling boost for a period of time if they hit, with a visual & audio cue. They will immediately stop a boosting engine cluster (unsure about the whole lot) from boosting if already in boost. This needs testing further to discover limits & timing - Snafu
