105mm 'RAP' Cannons: The principal defense on the Bridge Layer, these cannons are mounted on each side of the vehicle - though not symmetrically. Armed with a laser designator for a +1 RS to hit, these guns inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage per deadly burst.

Armored Hull: the Bridge Layer's frame is built from a titanium alloy / micro-mesh bonded hull, giving it considerable durability. This provides the Durability and Protection traits listed above, and make it very, very difficult to disable while being used as intended.

Communications Array: the Bridge Layer has a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system, allowing for constant team communications. This makes for rank value 10 comm power (25 mile range) with rank value 30 signal encryption.

Reinforced Bridge: the primary function of the Bridge Layer is to drop this device over a bad span of terrain, whether it be a narrow cavern or deep stretch of water. Spanning twenty three feet, this bridge is armored to the point that it has a material value of 40.

Rocket Launchers: the Bridge Layer has a secondary defense in the form of these launchers, which can fire anti-tank or anti-personnel missiles. These launchers can be fired in tandem to inflict +1 RS damage, and have up to 40 rounds available, which have these features:
