(Answered) Remote sensor dispenser oddities
« on: 10 February 2011, 16:47:12 »
Hi,
a few questions about the remote sensor dispenser:
TM page 236 has the remote sensor dispenser in the heavy equipment section, mountable on all units, and it states that units with additional cargo space can devote tonnage to "ammo" with 30 sensors per ton.
TO, on page 374, however says the following about ammo:
"Remote Sensors are designated as ammunition for any unit equipped with a Remote Sensor Dispenser, but are also considered part of the dispenser itself, and count as part of its total weight. Additional bins for dispenser “ammo” may not be assigned to a unit (each dispenser and its sensors are considered a self-contained item)."
So what's the rule?
Also, the availability ratings don't match up.
In the industrial equipment table on page 293 TM, it's (X-X-D).
The ammo in TM has availability of (F-F-D), and a cost of 21000 for 30 shots.
Then BA dispenser has availability (D-D-D), on page 298.
And in TO on page 375, Remote Sensors availability is listed as (E/E-F-E), and the cost is listed as 25000.
What is correct?

Why the mismatch in availabilties?

Greetings,

Go with TO for all answers.

Some things were documented in TechManual but then updated in TO when the full rules were written and showed then that there needed to be changes.

Ok, so the the BA version should cost just as much as the regular version, ie. 25000 cbills.
How many "shots" do we get with one remote sensor dispenser?
TO does not give a value for that.

Greetings,

60 shots, ammo is a separate cost. The launcher includes weight for the ammo but the cost is launcher plus ammo.
