FCS Adv TC

Targeting Computers are sophisticated pieces of electronics that, unlike normal targeting systems, physically help MechWarriors target their opponents. Complex stablizers and calculation algorithms permit much more precise weapons fire, even breaching enemy defensive stances and permitting the precise targeting of mech components. This allows for more surgical precision of weapons fire, especially with naturally accurate systems.

FCS Apollo

Developed by the Draconis Combine to alleviate some of the issues with their Medium-Range Missile system, the Apollo system permits the use of Apollo ammo for MRMs, which provide some reasonable boosts over standard MRM munitions. Cannot be used with other Missile TTS and enables using Apollo MRM ammo.

Location Designator FCS

A highly specialized piece of equipment, the Location Designator FCS permits a 'mech pilot to single out a location on an enemy unit and attempt to place heavy fire into that specific location. This ability is extremely coveted by pilots but comes with a cost. Because of the finely-tuned precision scanners, the Location Designator FCS does not track targets well. In practical terms, this means that the FCS permits general targeting of the location at the cost of accurate targeting of that location. Still, the trade-off is generally acceptable to pilots and the Location Designator FCS was an instant hit among MechWarriors.

Manufacturer: Mendham Electronics
Tonnage: 1
Critical Slots: 1
Install Location: Cockpit
Value: 750,000
Gear ID: Gear_TargetingTrackingSystem_CalledShot


Equipped Effects:

  • Enables targeting precise locations during called shot action
  • Called shot accuracy reduced by -25%

Critical Effects:

  • DESTROYED: 'Mech is incapacitated

Multi-Trac FCS

A specialized piece of equipment, the Multi-Trac Fire Control System was designed to give pilots on-the-fly multiple targeting capability. Based on the system found in the Thunderbolt, the Multi-Trac FCS proved a moderate success with pilots and was rolled out quickly to markets across the Inner Sphere.

Manufacturer: Mendham Electronics
Tonnage: 1
Critical Slots: 1
Install Location: Cockpit
Value: 750,000
Gear ID: Gear_TargetingTrackingSystem_MultiTrac


Equipped Effects:

  • Grants the Multi-Shot pilot ability. Can target up to three separate enemies when attacking

Critical Effects:

  • DESTROYED: 'Mech is incapacitated
