I'm not a genius, but I'm also pretty sure I'm not an idiot. This... thing... I do not understand. I don't understand what it's for. It makes no sense to me.

...with no body on it +($40 minimum,) and there has to be a radio to go to that Rx (which we can only assume is an M11 or M12.)
My mind is officially boggled.
