Part Background

History

Caterpillar track units have been around since before the launch of the Generation ships, and although they saw limited use on the Generational ships themselves, they have undergone a kind of revival of late, due to their numerous advantages over other locomotion types.

They can produce "squat" Mechs and that they can traverse difficult terrain with relative ease, although they have trouble going down sharp inclines and Mech pilots must be aware of their Mechs specific centre of gravity when attempting to out manoeuvre their opponents in rough terrain.

Operation

The Heavy Tracked unit is perhaps one of the bigger chassis available. Few industrial factories have the heavy equipment necessary to assemble a full Heavy Track unit - although there are numerous recovered units in circulation in the second hand market.

The tracked units themselves feature self-aligning tracks and sport heavy gauge alloyed tracks.

Their internal drives are contained within armoured body of the track unit itself and are thus protected by the thick outer armour.
