Data Sources
Census API source: S1 API Data?

The S1 is the default Vanu Sovereignty rocket launcher. Lacking targeting systems, the user has to manually compensate for any movement in the target, reducing accuracy over long ranges. Despite this, the S1 is a powerful weapon, with fast reloads, making it most effective in close range at dealing quick damage to vehicles.
