The X-20 Dragonslayer is a type of Terran missile ordnance.

Each missile houses a micro-fusion warhead made to implode with enough force to destroy a small squadron of fighters or cripple a frigate. If a Dragonslayer can get inside large capital ships, it can cause a chain reaction of multiple secondary explosions that will eventually destroy the ship (Star Wars: N-1 starfighter; Stargate - Atlantis: Daedalus).

Due to Protoss plasma shields and recent developments in force fields, the missile can be augmented with EM disruption technology to bypass most energy barriers (Mass Effect: Disruptor Torpedoes). This technology comes with a high manufacturing cost which forces Dragonslayers to be used in tactically specific missions. As such, the missile is often equipped to Yellow Jacket UAVs for their stealth, speed, and maneuverability.

Advantages

  • Can be mounted on ships, fighters and drones
  • Can take down a Battlecruiser if it gets through defenses
  • Can be equipped with EM disruption technology to bypass energy shielding

Disadvantages

  • Requires target lock before being launched
  • High cost makes it difficult to mass produce
  • Can be intercepted by point defense lasers
