Recon Camera


A Recon Camera is a battlefield surveillance camera, though its use in the thirty-first century has declined. Technically a group of visual sensors, a Recon Camera can provide high-resolution holographic data used to map terrain and locate enemy units. Recon Cameras are typically mounted on low-tech platforms, such as the Boomerang or civilian newsvid VTOLs.[1]


Game Rules[edit]

The Recon Camera has a maximum range of eighteen kilometers and can only be used on the Low Altitude map or ground map. Units equipped with a Recon Camera may act as a spotter for LRM Indirect Fire as if it were a TAG, but cannot use it to designate targets for other TAG-guided weapons, such as semi-guided LRMs, laser-guided bombs and Arrow IV artillery missiles. Hidden units that are passed over by a Recon Camera-equipped flier must reveal themselves on an unsuccessful 2d6 roll.[1]
