Micro-torpedo launchers are a smaller version of the full scale starship mounted torpedo launcher, they are designed for small craft such as fighters and runabouts. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

They function on the same principles as the larger launchers, but are designed to fit into a smaller space. As such, the projectiles are significantly smaller than full sized torpedoes, Their size varies depending on the size and bore of the launcher, however they usually are no more than half a meter in length.

The typical micro-torpedo was 13.3 cm in length and could be equipped with a variety of chemical explosives or even biological warheads. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

The projectile's yield varies, and it is significantly smaller than a full scale photon torpedo, but it is still able to deal serious damage to a small craft. (Star Trek: New Order)
