Just curious - there is Rapid Launch which I know applies to Launchers but I'm wondering if the skill Rapid Firing applies to launchers as well. It says "4% bonus per skill to weapon turret rate of fire"

Thanks for the help!

Rapid Launch does in fact apply to launchers, but Rapid Firing does not. Rapid Firing improves the fire rate of things like rail guns, projectile cannons and lasers, which use turret hard points. If it isn't a turret rapid firing will not apply.

Highlighted the part that answers your question. Missile launchers are not turrets, so therefore rapid fire doesn't apply.

ah but train up your tech II launcher skill and you get a rate of fire bonus, which will do a similar thing to rapid firing.

Also, to keep it very simple... in regards to missile training, the ONLY gunnery skills needed/usable, are Weapon Upgrades, and Advanced Weapon Upgrades. Regarding gunnery skills, there are no gunnery related skills in Missile Launcher Operation.
