Here is the text from my Page 117 of the MgT Supplement 4: Central Supply Catalogue (2009) ...

Launchers and Missiles

All weapons in this section require the Heavy Weapons (Launchers) skill to use properly, with the exception of rifle-mounted grenade launchers, which can also be used with Gun Combat (Slug Rifle) skill by military-trained individuals (use of the launcher is considered to be part of their training with the rifle). Grenades fi red from launchers (even under-barrel ones fitted to a rifle) are different to rifle and hand grenades.

Grenades of all types are rated as either hand or launched grenades and are roughly equivalent in performance. Launchers are rated in the same way as artillery weapons but have much shorter ranges. Launchers are ineffective beyond 1km or so.

Disposable Launcher, Light (TL 6): A lightweight, self-contained, non-reusable weapon that launches a small (60mm or so) rocket. Disposable Launchers are designed to fire HEAP warheads only and are rated as Extremely Light artillery weapons. They are also known as Light Antitank Weapons (LAW) or Light Anti-Armour Weapons (LAAW).

Reusable Launcher, Light (TL 6): A lightweight, reusable firing platform that launches a small (60mm or so) rocket. Reusable Launchers are designed to fire HEAP warheads only and are rated as Extremely Light artillery weapons.

Disposable Launcher, Medium (TL 7): A self-contained, nonreusable weapon that launches a fairly large (90mm or so) rocket. The Medium launcher is rated as a Very Light artillery weapon. Disposable Launchers are designed to fire HEAP warheads only. They are also known as Light Antitank Weapons (LAW) or Light Anti-Armour Weapons (LAAW).

Reusable Launcher, Medium (TL 7): A reusable firing platform weapon that launches a fairly large (90mm or so) rocket. The Medium launcher is rated as a Very Light artillery weapon. Reusable Launchers are designed to fire HEAP warheads only.

Disposable Launcher, Medium, Incendiary (TL 7): A self-contained, disposable weapon that launches a fairly large (90mm or so) rocket-propelled incendiary warhead. The Medium incendiary launcher is rated as a Very Light artillery weapon.
This is the first of three pages of descriptions of launchers running right up the TLs to TL 12 (Disposable Launcher, Plasma).
