General Details
Name:  ProtoMech
Type (Category):  Armor (Core)
Reference:  TechManual (p. 205)

Description:
A special version of compact military armor developed exclusively for ProtoMechs, this armor offers slightly better protection than standard military armor. ProtoMech armor gains additional efficiency because it is formed for smaller units and reduced surface areas, which provides for greater protective properties than typical plates of BattleMech armor.

Game Rules:
Armor is considered structural and cannot be “deactivated” during combat through engine shutdown or pilot/crew injury.
