The Kernel Mini Missile System was created in YE 39 to act as a system for launching mini missiles. It was decided that rather than make it a piece of equipment or a subsystem of specific size, it would be designed as a set of launcher tubes that can be assembled together in whatever shape or amount required to put in a vehicle or on equipment.
Launch tubes are arranged in a hexagonal cell with six missile tubes inside it. Each Cell is 180mm long on each face and holds the missiles snugly. Each side of the cell also has locking points to lock with other cells or to the structure in which it is set.
An individual cell is unassuming. It is a hexagon with each face 18 centimeters long and 10 centimeters tall. Inside it are dividers that separate out each missile tube, each of which is 8 centimeters in diameter. On each face, there are slots and tabs that can attach to the sides of other cells.
