Chest Mine Examples
Chest Mines example: BS weapon
- During his Active Turn, a Blackjack has not spent any of his two Chest Mines (Disposable 2) declares a BS Attack with them. He can apply the Twin Weapons rule that grants him a +1 to the Burst and allows him to target different enemies. However, this does means the Attack of the Blackjack consumes his two Chest Mines, and requires placing an UNLOADED Marker next to the model at the end of the Order.
Chest Mines example: CC Weapon
- During his Active Turn, a Blackjack equipped with Chest Mines (Disposable 2) declares a CC Attack with one of them. The Chest Mine used as CC Weapon grants him a +3 MOD to his CC Attribute.
Chest Mines example: Self Detonation
- Let's assume that the Blackjack equipped with Chest Mines (Disposable 2) is defeated in CC, fails the ARM Rolls, and enters the Unconscious state. Because there are no friendly models in base to base contact with the Blackjack the Self Detonation of the Chest Mines happens. Since the Blackjack has not consumed either of his two Chest Mines, the Self Detonation of both of them happens. So, all enemy troopers in base to base contact with the Blackjack must make two ARM Rolls, even those who succeeded at a Dodge but didn't disengage from the CC.
ATTENTION: Use of this weapon is prohibited by the Concilium Convention. Violators shall be prosecuted by international courts.
The evolution of the directed detonation systems to improve the safety of the explosive weapons, avoiding collateral damages and casualties, lowered the number of "friendly fire" incidents with weapons such as Antipersonnel Mines. Even though, manufacturers determine a safety perimeter around these weapons, because the deflagration caused by their detonation is still very potent. However, some armored vehicle crews and troops equipped with reinforced protection opted to adhere mines to the external surface of the vehicles or chest plates when they realized the structural integrity of their armors suffered not damage. The usefulness of this tactic has been proven in closed quarters combat, causing a psychological impact on the enemy, especially when these mines are carried by foot troops because it is a full statement about their mental health.
