Well that's 10G per HG factor, the SS3 conversion for direct impact is 1 hit every 3 combined delta vee (speed of missile +/- speed of target). So a turret missile hitting at deltavee 30 and assuming launch and target are 0 DV yields 10 hits +1d6 or whatever warhead effect.


I'm further more assuming a bit different mechanism for most missiles, the warheads are mostly heavy slugs doing kinetic damage by first getting a rapid boost and shot pattern from advanced HE, then their combined delta vee as per above. This matters because it determines armor penetration in addition to overall damage.


AND, that the relative damage levels that drop off between an HG battery hit of either variety and say an optimal turret SS3 swarm of missiles is explained by the combination of EW and maneuver to kinetic hit roll, yielding a buit-in wastage.
