The Light Fusion Engine (LFE) is mechanically similar to an XL Engine, but uses Lostech energy shielding to allow a mech to survive the destruction of a side torso. The Light Fusion engine is 75% the mass for the same performance, but intrudes into the side torso bays of a BattleMech.

Manufacturer: Generic
Tonnage: 0
Critical Slots: 8 (4 CT + 4 ST)
Install Location: Center Torso
Value: 937,500
Gear ID: emod_engineslots_light_center

Equipped Effects:

  • -25% engine core weight

Critical Effects:

  • HIT 1: Engine damaged, additional 15 heat per turn
  • HIT 2: Engine damaged, additional 30 heat per turn
  • DESTROYED: Engine destroyed, 'mech is incapacitated


  • Light engines take up 4 critical slots in the center torso and 2 in each side torso, this makes it quite somewhat vulnerable to side torso damage
  • 3 critical hits on the engine will also incapacitate the 'mech, providing full salvage in the same way a headshot would
  • Destroying a single side torso does not incapacitate a 'mech with a Light engine as there are only two critical slots in each side. Destroying both side torsos however will incapacitate the 'mech. (The Clan XL engine works the same way)
