RMS-1 Angel of Death 2BHistory:

This is an improved version of the RMS-1 missile with longer range, an improved warhead, more intelligent AI guidance and a more flexible propulsion system. The external dimensions and interface software remained unchanged from the older missile, and it can therefore be simply retrofitted to older mecha such as the VF-1 Valkyrie. From 2014 onward this missile replaced the RMS-1 on the production lines on Earth and with the REF/UEEF. It is still in production today.
