Overview & Gameplay

The Guardian Electronic Countermeasures (GECM) is notable for its discriminatory nature, able to scramble hostile electronics to reduce the Radar 'footprint' of whatever its mounted to; while leaving friendly communications and targeting enhancers unaffected. If utilized by a pilot clever to respect their new, smaller radar footprint; it can enable them to push further into contested territory, relay detailed radar information to their team while being undetectable to the enemy.

GECM is found mounted on a variety of Mechs, Aerospace and Vehicles, typically to flesh out the units role as a scout, except in the case of the Thanatos mech'- which has GECM hardmounted on all variants.

  • The reduction of a units radar signature is only while running Active Radar; and does not grant an 'extra' reduction on top of the reduced signature of Passive Radar.
  • GECM increases the time it takes for an enemy to achieve target lock. This bonus does stack on top of the similar bonus given by running in Passive Radar mode.
  • Overheating will not be masked by GECM.
  • Air GECM, on VTOLs and Aerospace, reduces lock on time, but does not reduce detection range.

Canon

GECM The Guardian ECM Suite, originally introduced in 2597, is a powerful electronic warfare device able to disrupt a wide variety of sensors and detection equipment while leaving friendly units unaffected. Unfortunately the complex system was too difficult for the Great Houses to maintain during the Succession Wars, and it went extinct in the Inner Sphere in the year 2845, until it was eventually recovered by the Capellan Confederation in 3045.
