A pre-War shoulder-mounted multipurpose missile weapon, consisting of a reusable launch unit with an advanced fire control system and a stainless steel launch tube. The control system is contained within a bulky reinforced control box and allows for a degree of target tracking. Aftermarket guidance systems were introduced shortly before the Great War, allowing for greatly increased accuracy and precision. Of note is the fact that unlike most conventional launchers, this model is a breech-loading weapon. Reloading involves breaking it open and sliding the fin-stabilized missile into the frontal section. The remaining length of the launching tube helps protect the operator from the blast, but even then, anyone standing behind it will be scorched, as the backblast is directed rearwards at a 90 degree angle and reaches up to sixty meters.
Annabelle is a unique pre-War missile launcher that was used during the annexation of Canada and at least one campaign against the Chinese in the Sino-American War. It features seven kill marks, four for marks for Canada, marked in red maple leaves, and three marks for China, marked in yellow stars. The original owner of the weapon stenciled Annabelle on the rear part of the launching tube, in cursive script.
Annabelle has a built-in guidance system to improve accuracy, and uses less AP in V.A.T.S. than the standard weapon. It is also lighter and has a lower Strength requirement.
Prior to patch 184.108.40.2062, Annabelle dealt 20 points of damage on direct hits with the missile itself, had a minimum spread of 0.2 degrees, and had a field of view zoom to 55 degrees.
