Name:  Look-Down Radar
Type (Category):  Equipment (Other)
Reference:  TechManual (p. 227)

Description:
Look-down radar is a specialized form of sensor equipment typically employed by surveillance aircraft to accurately map local topography and monitor troop movements. Unaffected by ground clutter, but susceptible to modern ECM systems, look-down radar is a useful piece of equipment, but often not deployed thanks to the preponderance of EW suites today, and because its best use requires aerial supremacy. Nevertheless, some units have appeared even in Clan arsenals with such equipment installed, such as the Clan Spectre-class surveillance planes that reportedly overflew the battlefields on Tukayyid in 3052.

Game Rules:
Look-down radar is not covered in Total Warfare game play. Instead, see Tactical Operations.
