Title: Infantry sneak suit (camo) vs sensors in Double Blind.
Post by: Gribbly on 30 July 2022, 10:05:35
The footnotes for the Visual Range Tables on p189 TO: AR mentions that 'Sneak: Camo' counts as active visual camouflage.

The ECM/Stealth Modifier Table on p191 has separate columns for 'Infantry Sneak' and 'Active visual camouflage'. The footnote states that Infantry Sneak includes Camo suits, but the Active Visual Camouflage note refers back to the table on p189.

Which ECM/Stealth modifier column should I use for Infantry Camo sneak suits?

Bump and a related question.

Page 129 Total Warfare states : 'Under the Hidden Units rules, an active probe can detect any hidden ’Mech, battle armor or vehicle (but not conventional infantry, or battle armor infantry equipped with any type of stealth armor)'.

The infantry stealth modifiers table page 130 'TO: AU&E' states that the ECM Sneak suit has an ECM effect of 'Invisible to Standard/Light Active Probes', but does not have that note for the other sneak suit types. This seems redundant if CI are invisible to probes by default anyway.

The table in TO:AU&E seems to imply a contradiction to Total Warfare. Is TW in error and non-stealth suit equipped infantry can be detected by active probes?
