CASE

CASE is short for Cellular Ammunition Storage Equipment. In an internal explosion event, CASE prevents the explosion from traveling to adjacent 'Mech compartments. While it does not prevent damage from occurring in the protected area, it does prevent it from passing through, helping to prevent ammo explosions to reach the center torso of a mech.

  • Contains explosions in the equipped component

Notes:

  • While CASE in a 'mech with an Inner Sphere XL engine won't prevent it from being incapacitated if ammo does explode, the CASE acts as insurance that you'll be able to recover the 'mech afterwards. More information on the subject can be found here

CASE (C)

Clan CASE is automatically installed as part of Clan armor, it protects every 'Mech component (arms and legs included) and requires no additional tonnage or critical slots. This is a transferable quality, if you install Clan Ferro-Fibrous armor in an Inner Sphere 'Mech it will have Clan CASE equipped.

CASE II

CASE II is an experimental version of standard CASE. When an internal explosion occurs, CASE II reduces the damage to the Internal Structure of the installed location, making it take only three points of damage. Unlike the classic Star League era standard CASE, Inner Sphere CASE II also mimics the standard Clan version's ability to be installed in the arms and legs, preventing any explosion in those components from affecting the local side torso

CASE II (C)

CASE II is an experimental version of standard CASE. When an internal explosion occurs, CASE II reduces the damage to the Internal Structure of the installed location, making it take 10 points of damage instead of the full damage from the explosion. Clan-spec CASE II is lighter than the Inner Sphere version, weighing only half a ton instead of the IS version's full ton.

NOTE: Clan CASE II requires some type of Clan armor to be installed on the 'mech before you can put the CASE II in.
