Overview[edit | edit source]
RogueTech expands equipment variety available in the core Battletech game and adds new categories. Some of the equipment is mandatory and without it mech won't be able to operate while other is completely optional and it is up to player to decide whether they want to use it or not.
- Mandatory equipment: structure, engine core, heatsinks, Fire Control System (FCS), cockpit, life support, armour, gyro, arms
- Optional equipment: Electronic Warfare Suites (EWS), Electronic Countermeasures (ECM), jump jets
Some of the equipment can be fixed in a specific mech model, it can be identified by diagonal stripe pattern instead of a solid fill. This equipment cannot be removed from the mech. If the equipment gets destroyed during the battle, you will always be able to repair it afterwards, unless the mech was not salvaged.
