    It is because most weapons have a real physical background. So there are limited ways to bring them on paper. Very easy...

    When I was in the Army, those things that Sharkbait provided photos of were called rocket launchers.

    What is the difference between a missile and a rocket?

    Missiles are guided, rockets are unguided.

    The DAGR is named the way it is so it can use the DAGR (Dagger) acronym. Furthermore, the "Rocket" part of the name is a reference to its propulsion system. An actual projectile would be called a: "DAGR Missile."

    Have you ever wondered how the whole 'base defence bubble' thing works? Battleship covers that too!

    And missiles are generally able to home on a target, whereas rockets don't. 
    My VC story: 
    Vega Conflict-er since closed beta phase 1, back when torpedo harriers ruled the sector.
    BP- started in the black sea days, then the game died...
    WC- started pre-World Map, then everything went downhill.

    A hellfire rocket is guided.  Any reference to your claim that a rocket is per definition unguided?  : http://www.thefreedictionary.com/rocket

    ....A Hellfire is considered a missile. Its designation is "AGM-114 Hellfire". In other words, "Air to Ground Missile-114: Hellfire.'

    Here is the White Sands Missile Range of the US Military answering the question:
    "One of the most asked questions is, "What is the difference between a rocket and a missile?" Range employees usually simplify the discussion by saying a missile has a guidance system or brain to get it to its destination and a rocket just goes where it is initially pointed."
    http://www.wsmr.army.mil/PAO/wuaws/Pages/Rocketsandmissiles.aspx

    Right at the bottom of your page of definitions, according to the "
    Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms. US Department of Defense 2005"
    "A self-propelled vehicle whose trajectory or course, while in flight, cannot be controlled."
    Emphasis mine.

    Hahaha, no problem. You are welcome. :)
    It is a confusing subject, because so many missiles are powered by 'rocket' engines.
