ECM

Utility

Electronic Counter Measures (ECM)
Disrupt mode: reduces range that enemy 'Mechs can scan and increases time for target lock. Provides this protection over a "bubble" around the equipped 'Mech. Blocks enemy Narc beacons from near-by friendly 'Mechs. Enemy 'Mechs will display "Low Signal Strength" and flickering targeting information. Counter mode: Can be configured to cancel nearest enemy ECM. Uses the dedicated ECM hardpoint.
Anti Missile System (AMS)
Destroys missiles in flight, prioritizing missiles targeting the 'Mech with the AMS. Requires ammunition, does not generate heat, and uses the dedicated AMS hardpoint.
Laser Anti-Missile System
Destroys missiles in flight, prioritizing missiles targeting the 'Mech with the AMS. Does not require ammunition (but generates heat), and uses the dedicated AMS hardpoint.
Target Acquisition Gear (TAG)
Laser that does no damage, but decreases weapon lock time by 50% and reduces spread for friendly LRMs while maintained. Allows for locks on 'Mechs within enemy ECM, so long as the TAGing 'Mech is not in an ECM field. Multiple TAGs on a target do not provide additional bonuses. Uses an energy hardpoint.
Narc Beacon
Missile that does no damage, but decreases weapon lock time by 50% and reduces spread for friendly LRMs until it expires. Bypasses ECM, but can be blocked if neighboring enemy 'Mechs have ECM. Multiple Narcs on a target do not provide additional bonuses. Uses a missile hardpoint.
Active Probe
Increases sensor range by 25%, reduces target information acquisition time by 25%and allows the targeting of unpowered 'Mechs within 120 meters. Counters the nearest ECM within 360 meters, but does not stack with an ECM in counter mode. Does not require a hardpoint.
Stuff

Upgrades

Artemis IV
Decreases weapon lock time by 50% when target is in line of sight and reduces spread of missile systems. Stacks with TAG. When applied LRM and SRM weapons increase by one ton and one slot. Artemis ammunition is more expensive. Does not provide any bonuses the SSRMs, MRMs and rocket launchers.


TAG and Artemis work together to decrease weapon lock time by 75%

TAG and NARC work together to decrease weapon lock time by 75%

Artemis will always replace any bonuses from NARC, even if Artemis does not have line of sight.
