Satchel Charge


A Satchel Charge is a bag which contains the equivalent of four C8 Blasting Blocks and a simple timer, usually set for 15 seconds. Satchel charges are commonly used by infantry for a multitude of purposes, including disabling combat vehicles and BattleMechs, but the requirement to physically place the charge potentially leaves the user open to enemy attack.[1]
