ST2 concussion missiles were launched from ST2 concussion missile racks, each of which could carry four missiles. The missiles were covered with a green energy shield while in flight and had orange exhaust flames. An ST2 missile was just over 1 meter long and as powerful as a standard proton torpedo. Their warheads were also armor-piercing. They had an optimum range of 300 meters and a maximum range of 700 meters, and cost 750 credits apiece.


Using these missiles, Lando Calrissian breached the reactor core of the second Death Star during the Battle of Endor, resulting in its destruction.
