Remote Sensor Dispenser


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]
