The HIM-112 Lancer[1] is a multi-stage, multi-warhead designed to engage craft up to mesopause. When used against a constellation of reentry vehicles or dropships, the Lancer can assign its ten maneuvering warheads to individual targets, or use them all against a single target in the case of re-entering starships.[2]

An unjammable datalink with the Lancer's ground tracking station ensures high accuracy and ECCM. So fast and effective is the automatic systems used to control Lancer launches that it is a common joke among Marines assigned to aerospace defense companies their only job is to make some coffee and watch the show.[2]

HIM-112 Lancer systems are part of the command-level support assets of a Marine Assault Unit.[3]
