Description:
When determining damage to the MechWarrior or pilot as a result of heat following a life support critical hit, treat the ’Mech’s heat level as being 5 points lower (an example of this is the Shadow Hawk) This quirk also doubles the cockpit’s standard life support time, from four days to eight.
