Description:
A special variation on armor installation, “patchwork” armor describes mounting armor of varying types on the same unit. Though no major manufacturers in the Inner Sphere, Periphery, or Clan space produce units with multiple armor types, centuries of scavenging and maverick technicians (by whim or by necessity) have sent many units into the field with patchwork armor. Under this advanced construction option, units may vary their armor types by location, rather than assigning a single type and uniform application across the entire unit.

Game Rules:
Follow the rules as set forth for the specific armor type mounted in the given location.

Construction Rules:
May be mounted on any available unit type in accordance with the unit’s standard construction rules.
