Design Notes - This is a common enough design - the exploitation of laser guidance and Heavy Rockets (see Phobos). It's good for weight management(especially with a regular Rocket Launcher), which makes it ideal for vans. I don't remember playtesting this design or not, but sending 9 dice of damage with a 4 to hit can ruin anyone's day. Even more so if I make the rockets incendiary or armor-piercing.
Design Notes The original name was "Doyhap" then "Thanos" - I'm not sure why I dropped that in favor of Armageddon.
UPDATE - Nov 5, 2013: looking at this write-up, I think that I edited it on the fly, because it doesn't match so well the scans I just made. Rather than amending it here, I will rewrite it wholly.
