Product description

The Experimental Engineering Group has triumped in creating a larger version of their previous scanning arm, duplicating their heroic feat for a twice-in-a-lifetime scientific accomplishment.

The medium scanning arm incoporates a 3rd instrument for further data gathering, increasing the amount of data the arm can gather.

Search for a surface feature from the Breaking Ground expansion, they can be found either by flyby or by using the ROC finder in the cheat menu.

Warning: Surface features may not be active if you continue a saved game right after buying the expansion. There is a (risky) workaround for this.

Here are their location per biome.

Once the surface feature is found, get close to it and right-click on the arm to start the scan. The ship must be at a full stop and the arm must have enough room and electricity to perform the experiment.

When the experiment is finished you'll have a standard experiment report telling you to upgrade your arm in order to have more science points. You can right-click on the arm while controling a Kerbal to take the experiment with you.
