(Answered) PRB Range - Commander's Edition
« on: 04 September 2021, 14:54:19 »
Seeking clarification regarding the range of PRB (Not BH or LPRB).

- The special ability entry (pg. 82) states The active probe’s effective range is 18”

- The blip counter detection rules also note (pg. 157) This sensor range is extended to...18” if it has an Active Probe (PRB)

- Active probes (pg. 158) states that Each unit with an active probe special can scan a single enemy unit within its probe’s range: ...16” for the standard probe (PRB)

- The hidden unit detection table (pg. 167 and 210) notes: Active Probe 10"

I believe the intent is for it to have a range of 18", the 16" is possibly an error on page 158, and that maybe a shorter range is intended for hidden unit detection specifically?

Correct.  I've posted errata for p158 changing it to 18" to match the others.
Hidden units do have the lowered detection ranges for probes.
