The Bloodhound Active Probe entry on TacOps AU&E (page 90) notes that it does not function with stealth armor enabled.
But Bloodhound entry on BMM (page 110) does not make such mention, and reading through stealth armor and ECM rules gives one impression Bloodhound might work with active stealth armor.

Which book is correct? I would presume TacOps but cannot be sure.


And on topic of active probes, it seems other stealth systems in TacOps (CLPS, pg 112; NSS, pg 148; VSS, pg 161) do not prevent active probes from being used while active, unlike normal stealth armor. I presume this is correct and intended?

The ruling preventing Bloodhounds from being used while stealthed was a later one that I forgot to port over to the BMM; it will be added as errata to the BMM.  Bloodhound pierces regular ECM, yes, but it compromises your stealth ability in doing so.

The other "stealth-type" systems follow their own type of rules and are working as intended.
