Currently, we have a lot of guided missiles in game, but wouldn't it be nice to have unguided ones as well?

My idea is a single tube Hawkeye Missiles Launcher that would look something like this:

(Ignore the bad coloring)
It would fire a single, very fast, unguided rocket whilst being on a rotatable turret
To reload, the animation would have the tube pitch up, slide down, and return with a loaded rocket
To compensate for the lack of guiding, the velocity would have to be higher than normal missiles and the damage per missile would have to be higher as well

So, more of an RPG (rocket propeller grenade) than a guided missile?

Maybe, as lower tech, more rough and ready option, it should go to GSO? Then it could either have bigger (splash) damage damage, to compensate difficult aim, or just be straight up less effective...

I like this idea. In practice, it would probably feel a lot like a lower-end cannon, but without projectile arc.

You could do something fancy with it, like make it anti-armor or something by giving it a special multiplier versus armor panels.
