Game Info[]

Ballistics is a branch of physics that deals with projectile behavior. Seeing how more and more contemporary weapons are projectile-based, the development of this science allows better understanding and construction of more modern and efficient weapons, such as Machine Guns, capable of dealing damage to both land and air targets.

Civilopedia entry[]

Ballistics is the study of motion involving projectiles - mainly bullets, missiles, and bombs. In most cases, the term ballistics arises in relation to the forensic study of weapons and ammunition, particularly involving crime, where it may be necessary to connect a weapon with a recovered bullet to prove guilt or innocence. The more general study of ballistics has, over the past century, led to vast improvements in the accuracy, power, and overall effectiveness of projectile weapons of varying types.
