The Tomcat A2AM Pods are a secondary wing mount weapon for the New Conglomerate Reaver and the Terran Republic Mosquito.

Tomcats are air-to-air lock-on fire-and-forget type missiles capable of dealing high damage to large aircraft like Liberator and Galaxy, but less effective than Coyote Missiles against smaller ones.
