Mine Dispenser

Third Offensive Content.

A two-use Disposable BS weapon that loads Antipersonnel Mines and is able to perform Speculative Fire.

The Mine Dispenser does not require an enemy–or, in fact, any trooper at all–as a target, placing a Mine Marker at the declared point of impact, in the Conclusion of the Order, and only if the corresponding BS Roll is succeeded.

So, a Mine will never detonate in the same Order it was launched by the Mine Dispenser.

IMPORTANT!

Firing a Mine Dispenser can never be an Intuitive Attack. Consequently, Mines launched by this weapon cannot be placed where an enemy Camouflage or TO Camouflage Marker is inside the Trigger Area, unless a valid target is also inside it.

Mine Dispensers are portable area denial weapons, designed to be installed in vehicles or super heavy armor units. They consist of a double thrower system that allows two different attack angles. However, the trigger device of this weapon is connected to both launchers, to facilitate its instinctive use in high speed attack situations. These weapons have been widely used by the Cossack light cavalry units in Tartary, given their great effectiveness in counteracting the ferocious charges of Antipode raiders. Homemade versions of this weapon can be found in the black market, often used by members of the Bosozoku, the biker gangs of Japan and Kuraimori, as well as by the drivers of the Thai mafias of Nakhonthai province, in Shentang.
