Rocket launcher or missile launcher is a common name for a shoulder-launched missile weapon, the wider international term for any weapon that fires a rocket-propelled projectile at a target, yet is small enough to be carried by a single person, and fired while held on one's shoulder.

Miss Launcher

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

The Miss Launcher is a unique version of the above missile launcher model. It is comparable to a grenade launcher, as it has an arcing flight similar to the Fat Man. Standard missiles fired from this weapon do not fly; instead, the missile-tube itself has been converted to propel them pneumatically. In doing so both the missile's explosive warhead and unused solid rocket fuel are free to detonate together, increasing the missile's explosive damage potential by 30%.

A missile is a form of self-propelled weapon used by several species.

Missiles came in several sizes and payloads: they ranged from small-caliber, ground-to-ground missiles to humonguous Cardassian ATR-4107s, with payloads made out of anything from conventional explosives to antimatter or trilithium. (VOY: "Dreadnought")

There were missiles small enough so the launcher could be carried by a single marine, even though the marine could only carry one round. They were used by the Kzintis in ground combat. (RIS Bouteina: "Degree of Liberty")

Starting from the late 23rd century, the most common shipboard missile was the photonic missile, used by several species, namely the Kzintis, the Klingons and later the Gorn. There was at least one instance of Federation-mounted photonic missiles on small craft. (Star Fleet Battles, Star Trek Online, VOY: "Extreme Risk")

They were necessary in various types of combat to destroy enemy vehicles, command stations, and eradicate large numbers of infantrymen. An example included the PLX-1 portable missile launcher. In many different armies, certain soldiers were especially trained to use missile launchers. These types of soldiers included Separatist assault droids, Clone heavy troopers, Rebel Vanguards, IG-100 MagnaGuards and Imperial shock troopers.

PTL missile launchers were used by pilots mainly within cruiser hangars to quickly wipe out penetrating starfighters that deployed foes.
