The Torso Cockpit has long been a dream of BattleMech designers. By moving the MechWarrior to a more heavily protected area, an army would be able to keep its more experienced soldiers in the fight a lot longer. The idea remained a dream until the unlocking of the Helm Memory Core provided a jump-start to many technological projects.

  • Moves the life support slots into the side torsos. This has the unintended side-effect of disabling the Clan quirk, so if you put a Torso Mount Cockpit into a Clan 'mech it will lose its acuracy and speed bonuses but also its melee accuracy penalty. If you want to turn a Kodiak into a melee monster this gear is essential
