General Details
Name:  Ultraheavy ProtoMechs
Type (Category):  Core (Other)
Reference:  Interstellar Operations (p. 98)

Description:
Pushing ProtoMech design techniques to their limits, Ultraheavy ProtoMechs can reach a maximum weight of 15 tons (15,000 kilograms), overlapping the tonnage of Ultralight BattleMechs. Achieving this without using BattleMech-scale components—including gyros—meant creating a larger control system based around a modified PA(L) suit. In addition to giving the Ultra the same flexibility of control, this suit-based cockpit and control unit doubles as an escape system for ProtoMech warriors, something not possible for lighter, standard-weight ProtoMechs.
