Developed by the underground Red Faction members, the Thermobaric Rocket Launcher is the most destructive home-made weapon created to date. It has the blast radius of a small car bomb, and gives for a huge cloud of highly flammable vapor. Unlike the normal Rocket Launcher, this weapon can only hold one rocket at a time.

Instead of letting the rocket impact an object or surface, the user can also detonate the rocket while it is in mid-air, allowing for more accurate attacks on tall buildings, vehicles, and humanoids.

Later existed Edit

Following the revolution, the Thermobaric Rockets had been stocked and placed it in many of the Red Faction vehicles in order to prepared themselves for any threat that will come in the future. During in the White Faction Crisis, the remnant of the EDF, White Faction, which they attempted to spark a new war between both Red Faction and Marauders by used their Severus-Class Dreadnaught inter-planetary ship to target both territories. Alec Mason used the damaged shuttle with Thermobaric and ram into it, successfully destroyed the dreadnaught, but not without sacrificed himself in the process.

Trivia Edit

  • if fired at the ground in the irradiated zone or an abandoned building, the resulting dust cloud's general shape will vaguely resemble a mushroom cloud. this might be a reference to the Fatman from fallout 3.
  • Unlike most rockets,this rocket features a ramjet air-breathing engine, which would only allow it to operate inside atmosphere but provide better fuel economy.
