Rocket launcher trucks, previously referred to as launchers and special launchers, are mobile platforms designed for artillery roles.
Launchers have made numerous appearances in the Ace Combat series.
Launchers have seen moderate use by various armies in the Strangereal universe, but how far back their deployment goes is unknown.

Launchers were used by the Erusean Army to a limited extent during the Continental War, most notably during Operation Firefly when launchers were used to shell ISAF Army tanks across the river and during Operation Sandstorm, where Erusean launchers held in reserve were bombed by Mobius 1.
Launchers were prominently utilised throughout the Aurelian War by the Leasath Ground Forces, particularly by their special forces. Their most notable use was right after Griswall's liberation by Aurelia, where the Skylla Unit launched an unsuccessful attack on the Aurelian Liberation Corps using the vehicles' cruise missiles.
