It's not a CC attack.  The demo charges require a certain amount of actions to place (ATP) and these are dedicated actions.

Reminds me of Origins last year, when someone placed a satchel charge on Karak the Keeper....

The fireworks were quite pretty...

How did he place a satchel charge on Karak with ATP 3 he would have had to survive a CC attack from Karak?

Hmm.  If I recall correctly, weren't you in control of Karak, Southpaw, during the incident of which you speak?

And yes Lopis, that is exactly how Blitzers are supposed to be used.  In hand to tank combat there can be only one logical outcome.  A blown up tank and an adrenaline buzzed Blitzer!  ;)

Yep, I sure was.   :D You recall correctly, as usual.

The dice gods have never frowned upon me so horridly as they did that game. I have since said 1000 Hail Mary's, and have buried the offending dice where they will never do anyone harm ever again.

Unless FAQ'd otherwise, you may not purchase a Remote Detonator.  This only precludes the use of Detcord as the C9 charges only require a Detonator if you want to fire them remotely.
Are you sure that C9 requires only a remote detonator when firing against personnel? Couldn't it be that remote detonator is always required, gives a 6" range, and when firing against personnel you get reduced damage?

Also, what is the detcord range?

Yes they both require a remote detonator that is why I feel any model with demo training should be allowed to have 1 and Detcord is designed to be wrapped aroud or placed on not thrown per the rules.
