Remote Sensor Dispenser

Description[edit]

Remote Sensor Dispensers are small cargo bays with an attached dispenser used to place Remote Sensors. These dispensers are normally mounted on support vehicles, used to secure newly-established landing zones or defensive perimeters. Each RSD can carry up to thirty short-range sensors, typically a mix of thermal, electromagnetic and seismic sensors.[1]

Game Rules[edit]

Remote Sensor Dispensers may be mounted on and deployed by any ground or naval vehicle, BattleMechs, and any air unit capable of flying within 7 Altitudes of the ground. Additional ammo may be added at a rate of 30 sensors per half ton. Remote Sensors may be deployed at the cost of 1 MP and follow the standard rules per Tactical Operations.[2][3]
