MM/VerdanTech Spontoon Heavy Missile

Merilli Munitions was a Merisee armament corporation founded in the dying
breaths of the Old Republic. Merilli, or MM, did fairly well but they were
overshadowed by the MM from the Palvar Sector, Mestic Munitions. Merilli
became known for being very efficient and having high quality products
instead of cheaply mass produced models. Merilli was later boguht out by
Verdant Technologies where the two's methods were combined as well as their
resources and ideas, furthering Verdant greatly.

One of the first MM/VT designs was the Spontoon Series Anti-Armour Missile.
These missiles were manufactured totally within single dedicated facilities.
The building materials would be refined and processed, then shaped and set
together. The circuitry would be built and components fit together. Fuel
would be mixed and formed and stored in tanks and fit in with the rest of it.
All of this took place in a single building at each factory.

Part of what make the spotoon series so special though is that all the leftover
materials are put through a molecular furnace. Hydrogen and Nitrogen atoms
are pulled out and stored in special tanks while the rest is recycled.

The missiles are then established with guidance systems at the very tip of
the nose, drive section at the very rear, fuel right in front of the drive
section, and a directed thermal detonator warhead right behind the guidance
system. Then between all that would be heavier duty explosives surrounded by
the small tanks of Hydrogen and Nitrogen. The effect is that when the warhead
hits, the directed thermal detonator funnels it's charge straight forward
ripping a gap in the armour of whatever it strikes. The Hydrogen and Nitrogen
tanks between the first detonator and the main explosive packages then rupture,
causing them to expand out in a cloud as the first heavy explosives go off,
the hydrogen and nitrogen cloud feeding the explosion with fuel. The other
Hydrogen/Nitrogen tanks padding the explosives are ruptured by the blast
adding a secondary explosive 'boost' to the blast. So in effect there are
three exlosions. One to open up the armour, a second to rip things to shred,
and a third final one to take out anything left over.
