Bio:

Emergency Flare

  • Tech Level: 2
  • Availability: A
  • Legality: B
  • Cost: 7 C-Bills
  • Damage: 3d6 +2
  • Weight: 600 Grams
  • Effect: The emergency flare is common throughout the Inner Sphere and Clan space and consists of a solid fuel core with a pin-pull igniter. The flare can burn underwater and does considerable damage if touched. Its burning time is 30 minutes and its light is so bright that it can be seen for 150 hexes (750 meters) of unblocked terrain.

Demolition Kit

  • Tech Level: 2
  • Availability: A
  • Legality: C
  • Cost: 200 C-Bills
  • Weight: 2 Kilograms
  • Effect: Common throughout the Inner Sphere, the standard demolition kit is a compact airtight carrying case with a number of tools and gear needed to rig booby traps and set explosives. A standard demolition kit has enough timers, blasting caps, tape, and other equipment to set up 12 simple timed or fused explosions or 3 complex booby traps.

CB Blasting Block

  • Tech Level: 3
  • Availability: A
  • Legality: C
  • Cost: 1,000 C-Bills
  • Weight: 1 Kilogram
  • Effect: C8 blasting block is the most common plastique explosive currently in use. These malleable grey-green blocks require a Demolition Kit or electrical charge to set off. When triggered, a single C8 block does 8D6 Lethal Damage to all targets withinthe hex where it detinates and 6D6 to targets in all surrounding hexes. If applied to a Battlemech, a block of C8 does 1 point of Battletech scale damage.

Pentaglycerine

  • Tech Level: 3
  • Availability: B
  • Legality: C
  • Cost: 1,500 C-Bills
  • Weight: 200 Grams
  • Effect: Pentaglycerine is one of the most potent explosives known to man (and furry). A 200-gram block of this material contains as much blasting power as a kilo of C8, although Pentaglycerine explosions cause less collateral damage than Cb explosives. This characteristic makes Pentaglycerine more popular with industrial customers than military users. Setting up a Pentaglycerine blast requires a Demolition Kit and a great deal of caution. Pentaglycerine plastic-explosive blocks remain inert until exposed to an electrical detonation or excessive heat. The explosion of a block of Pentaglycerine inflicts 10d^ Lethal Damage to all targets in the hex where it detonates and 3D6 Lethal Damage to targets in surrounding hexes. If applied to a Battlemech, a block of C8 does 1 point of Battletech scale damage.

Satchel Charge

  • Tech Level: 3
  • Availability: B
  • Legality: C
  • Cost: 4,500 C-Bills
  • Weight: 4 Kilograms
  • Effect: Satchel Charges consist of plastic explosive equal to 4 blocks of C8 (see C8 Blasting Block), a self-contained 15-second timer, and a carry bag. The satchel charge may be fitted with a timer from a Demolition Kit as well. When triggered, a satchel charge does 12D6 damage to all targets in the hex in which it detonates, and 8D6 damage to targets in all surrounding hexes. Satchel Charges are typically used by infantry troops making anti-Battlemech leg attacks.

Anti-Personnel Mine

  • Tech Level: 2
  • Availability: B
  • Legality: C
  • Cost: 380 C-Bills
  • Weight: 2.5 Kilograms
  • Effect: Anti-personnel Mines are small explosive devices, usually buried or concealed beneath undergrowth. The devices may detonate whenever 8 kilograms or more of pressure is applied to them. to determine if a mine goes off, the gamemaster makes a to-hit roll. On a result of 8 or greater, the mine detonates. For every additional mine in a hex, apply a -1 modifier to the roll. A detonating Anti-Personnel mine does 6D6 Lethal Damage to the legs of a character who steps on it. Divide the damage in half and compare to the leg Damage Threshold to determine the damage effect to both legs.
