Bloodhound Active Probe

This article is about the experimental successor to the Beagle Active Probe. For the Free Worlds League 'Mech, see Bloodhound.


The Bloodhound Active Probe was first introduced by ComStar in 3058. After the Clan Invasion they saw a need to improve their already formidable electronic warfare capabilities. Events in the latter half of the thirty-first century overtook them however, and the Bloodhound Active Probe didn't enter large scale production.[1]

Using the Beagle Active Probe as a baseline, ComStar technicians created a probe that had a range of 240 meters[2] and could penetrate advanced stealth systems. Testing proved conclusively that a Bloodhound-equipped 'Mech could spot units equipped with Null Signature Systems, Void Signature Systems, Stealth Armor, and ECM Suites.[1] The Bloodhound can also detect battle armor equipped with ECM systems, Mimetic Armor, or any kind of Stealth Armor.[1]
