Sample text

For this reason, when a sensor is used to detect an object in space, the range is greatly increased. Normal sensors do not work underwater. Underwater Sensors (like sonar) can be acquired separately, also for 1 Mecha Point/Level. They work in the same manner as ordinary sensors, but only detect objects in or under water, and have 1/10 range. For example, a Level 3 Underwater Sensor has a 5 km range. Sensors can also be given special abilities, such as analyzing power levels, detecting life signs, or whatever else the GM feels is reasonable.

Multiply the combined mecha's normal Health Points by the result to find out how many Health Points it has left. When a merged mecha that was damaged while merged separates into individual mecha, divide the current (damaged) Health Points of the combined mecha by its normal undamaged Health Points and multiply this by each mecha's undamaged Health Points to find their uncombined status. Mecha that were damaged before merging cannot have more Health Points after separation than they did before the merging.
