Missiles Questions

This may be answered somewhere, and if so, please help a fella out. Otherwise, can you help me with missiles.

The only information I can find on them is under the Sagittarius Missile Cruiser in the EAFB.

My confusion points are:

1. How many missliles are on a missile rack? The rules say that most of the time - two at most or one for civilian and small craft. So all ships we assume two per rack?

2. Reloads? is this the number of Rack reloads, or Missile reloads?

3. Is the Reloads 10 under the basic missile an error? Not being nitpicky, just trying to differentiate it from the rest of the missles that don't have a reloads stat. If it is correct, why does it have a reloads and the others do not?

4. Is Guidance like the attack bonus on normal weapons?

5. Is Fuel the range of the missle? and how does that correlate with speed? Can a missile fly (fule number) of rounds at (speed).

Thanks for any assistance any one can provide. I am gaming tomorrow morning, and missles will be available for players.

Game on!

On most ships it will say how many ready missiles are available per rack. On the Sag, it's 1 per rack.

2. Reloads? is this the number of Rack reloads, or Missile reloads?

It's the total number of ready missiles available for the racks - 80 missiles for 8 racks is 10 for each.

3. Is the Reloads 10 under the basic missile an error? Not being nitpicky, just trying to differentiate it from the rest of the missles that don't have a reloads stat. If it is correct, why does it have a reloads and the others do not?

I believe this is an error and can be ignored.

4. Is Guidance like the attack bonus on normal weapons?

5. Is Fuel the range of the missle? and how does that correlate with speed? Can a missile fly (fuel number) of rounds at (speed).

Check page 76 in the main rule book under "Guided Weapons". It covers both these questions.
