The Anti-Battle Armor Pod (or B-Pod) is a single-use explosive that detonates in two omnidirectional blasts with a range of 20 meters.
While easily ignored by any mech or vehicle, the blast damages any nearby Battle Armor by up to 80% of its armor and health. It is perfect for finishing off any lightly wounded Battle Armor dancing below your field of view. As the B-Pod be used only once, it can't take field reloads off spare free tons, and thus can only be replenished during repairs or when in a buy zone.

With battle armor designs growing in number and diversity on all sides, various factions attempted adaptation of the Anti-Infantry explosive A-Pods for use against battle armored-troops. Clan Wolf-in-Exile succeeded in 3068, followed shortly thereafter by the Jade Falcons. Now spreading throughout Inner Sphere and Clan technical circles (Spheroid makers include Skobel on Terra, Defiance of Furillo and IrTech), this defensive armament — available to BattleMechs and vehicles — works like A-Pods, but hurls a cloud of explosive bomblets rather than shrapnel to blast through the more hardened armor of swarming battlesuits.
The following mechs equip B-Pod:
