The Missile Pod is a simple shoulder or arm-mounted Tau Battlesuit missile launcher system, primarily used to engage light vehicles or other similar targets at medium range. A direct hit from one of these missiles is sufficient to tear open Space Marine power armor, with a follow-on shot exploding the Space Marine in gruesome fashion.
