A probe variant that is new in this release of Homeworld, the Sensors Distortion Probe moves to a single location before being immobilized. This probe variant’s primary function, as the name suggests, is to scramble the sensors of your enemies, working to hide your ships from them on the overview. Probably most effective in multiplayer as the effect it has an CPU controlled forces, especially in the campaign, is hard to gather. Has three wings that extend out near the engine when deployed.
