Well, look at the model. A multiple rocket launcher is the size of a god
damn imperial bombard. But bombard shells bring down buildings in one shot
and have a huge save modifier.

The devastating hail of missiles unleashed by a multiple rocket launcher
most surely be potent and effective. WHile I can cope with the weapon firing
a hail of fragmentation rockets scything down light troops, it should still
be better than whirlwinds.

I rather see it firing incendiary plasma loaded rockets that spread heat,
plasma, fragmentaiton and armour piercing splinters all around. Certainly
thsi makes for -1 to save. Possible even -2. Or ignore cover.
