Mechs are first divided by Technology class. This terminology comes from the clear division in power between First, Second, Third Rate State. A state power is tied by the technology class of its Mech Army. As such, Mechs are divided by 1st Class Mechs, 2nd Class Mechs, 3rd Class mechs. To note, MTA and CFA are 1st Class power.
a) 1st Class Mechs[edit | edit source]
1st Class Mechs are fielded by First Rate Power such as the Big two, first rate super states and a great number of first rate state. These mechs wield the most power in the galaxy. They have access to spatial pocket allowing to stock module and therefore bypassing any storage problem. As such, a 1st class mech tend to have no archetype as they can wield a variety of weapon system. They are therefore the most difficult mechs to control as the pilot must be proficient in any role. Those mechs are also the most expensive to produce as they need a lot of exotics, especially for the spatial storage.
