Infiltration and Espionage Equipment – Much of a Rebel’s work is necessarily carried out in the shadows. The Alliance simply does not have the resources or personnel to face off head-to-head against the powerful war machine of the Galactic Empire, so to bring about the change they desire and to spread freedom throughout the galaxy, many Rebels wage a shadow war against the Empire. While spying, targeted assassinations, industrial espionage, sabotage, commerce raiding, and other violent and disruptive acts may have a reputation as cowardly and dishonorable among some, these tactics are extremely effective in the kind of guerrilla warfare being waged by the Alliance. Clandestine Rebel operatives use a number of specialized pieces of equipment to help them carry out their quiet attacks on Imperial infrastructure.

From Age of Rebellion

Com scramblers are radio and data encryption suites used to secure communications in the field. They can be attached to most comlinks and vehicle-mounted radios, and only those individuals with a linked scrambler can decode the transmissions. Their small size and relative rarity make them easy to conceal, which is a serious plus as the use and/or possession of a com scrambler by civilians is a serious crime in most places ruled by the Galactic Empire.

From Edge of the Empire

Scramblers are devices used to encrypt communications for privacy or security (or both). They can be affixed onto most comlinks or other similar equipment, and only those with a linked scrambler are able to follow the conversation. Their small size makes them easy to conceal, which is important since they’re illegal for civilians to possess on most civilized worlds. Companies like Chedak produce models like the Mark 5 primarily for military or police use, although many end up on the black market.

Design Notes

I have changed this item to a restricted item based on the flavour text. It clearly states it is illegal for a civilian to carry this item.
