General Details
Name:  ProtoMech
Type (Category):  Structure (Core)
Reference:  TechManual (p. 225)

Description:
When it comes to internal structure design, ProtoMech technology, while quite compact in most aspects, differs very little from that of standard BattleMechs. Proportionately identical to standard BattleMech internal structure, only the small size of these units prevents their use of bulkier endo-steel technology.

Game Rules:
Internal structure/structural integrity is considered structural and cannot be “deactivated” during combat through engine shutdown or pilot/crew injury. Internal structure points are noted on the ProtoMech Record Sheet by gray-shaded circles.
