The Mark 87 "Damocles" Kinetic Strike Package was a containerized long-range kinetic weapon system used by the Star Empire of Manticore's military.

Designed to fit into any standard shipboard magazine and sized to deploy through a counter-missile launch tube, it could be configured with several different types of payload; the most common version was six M412 kinetic penetrators. It could produce an effective yield of up to one megaton.

In 1922 PD, HMS Quentin Saint-James deployed such a weapon against the Lombroso Arms Tower on Mobius Beta, to kill off the leadership of the local government and Solarian military hierarchy. (HH14)
