No, Markov Spiked Chain was getting at is by the core rule book, that is how missiles work. They just appear after some time after combat with out costing money.
And I agree. The whole equipment section of the book to me is lacking. There should be more guns and armor and tools. But to me, it is logical that unless specific situations happen, projectiles should seem obsolete.
That is dumb they reappear sometime after combat, if that is true. I haven't ventured to much into the starship section.
Also, I agree the equipment section is lacking ALOT. But please keep in mind this is the CRB. Limited space and they did't want to throw ALOT of things out at first. They could end up doing a full on book just to weapons. I am sure we will get an adventures armory style book. I hope they do a full on book and not a companion style book.
Also this is the first edition of the system. I am sure over the next 1-2 years we will see some changes.
