When a missile has been bought it is transferred into the cargo bay. In order to allow the missile to be fired then it must be loaded into one of the Spacecrafts magazines by entering the Missile Loaders’ Shop. Referring to the illustration which shows a typical screen where the area on the left displays a list of the Ships Magazines, which once selected will be displayed on the right. The magazine is displayed as a series of boxes where the firing position is located at the bottom. A list of the missiles that are held in the Cargo Bay which are compatible with the selected magazine are displayed below this together with a pair of buttons which allows the ordnance to be added or removed.

It should be noted that Missiles cannot be transferred between the hold and a magazine once in flight and that this operation can only be performed whilst docked.
