The Type-2 Station is a piece of USR equipment.
The Type-2 Station, or Portable Communications Node (also known simply as a Com Node), is one of several portable stations used by the USR. Like all the other stations, it is a small bluish-purple box, this with a small opening on the front, housing a keypad, screen, speakers, camera, and microphone, all of which is used to transfer information both to other such stations and directly to on the field units. On top of the box are mounted several small dishes and attennae, used to send the transmissions and to receive tactical data from the orbital fleet or information gathering units, such as drones (if either are present in the battle).
In addition to the small variant, there is a larger one used for long-range tranmissions or tranmissions containing vast amounts of data. These were seen extensively in larger scale operations, such as the Battles of Installation 05 and 00, where large forces were present over a large area.
