Backlash rocket

The terran Backlash rocket is a type of stinger missile,[1] used as a form of air-to-ground ordnance. They are carried by AH/G-24 Banshees.[2] The rocket's high explosive warhead is lined with plasteel, and is designed to burn through the heaviest neosteel plating known to humanity. The shoddy guidance systems in these munitions, coupled with massive collateral damage in urban settings, have earned the Banshee an infamous reputation as a Dominion terror weapon.[3]

The installation of a shockwave missile battery allows these missiles to be fired in a straight line with each shot, allowing the Banshee to hit multiple ground targets. This makes the Banshee extremely potent against clustered ground targets.[4]
