Pilots must balance mobility and damage output against the amount of heat generated from their weapons fire and ‘Mech operation, lest they risk the temporary loss of power that comes when a ‘Mech overheats. Firing all weapons simultaneously (known as an Alpha Strike) can be the quickest way to devastate an opponent, but may leave a ‘Mech helpless against its enemies if the heat sinks can’t handle the stress. By the 31st century, tanks have evolved to take on humanoid shape, their treads replaced with nimble legs. Like modern tanks, ‘Mechs move their upper torso and weapons independently of their legs offering unparalleled mobility while exchanging fire. Depending on their size, BattleMechs travel at vastly different speeds and offer different systems like jump jets to aid in their locomotion.
Mechs possess both external armor and strong internal structural elements to help minimize the chance of a ‘quick kill’. As a result, pilots must treat each encounter with the utmost attention and awareness, prioritizing weaker or more critical components before delivering the killing blow. Communication among teammates and the effective use of targeting systems can help to identify vulnerable ‘Mechs and components. Pilots must balance mobility and damage output against the amount of heat generated from their weapons fire and ‘Mech operation, lest they risk the temporary loss of power that comes when a ‘Mech overheats.
