Units are classified into four tonnage cateogories. Each cateogory has design and operational specifications that dictate what a unit is capable of performing

Classification By Tonnage

  1. Light: has a tonnage between 10 to 35 tons
  2. Medium: has a tonnage between 36 to 55 tons
  3. Heavy: has a tonnage between 56 to 75 tons
  4. Assult: has a tonnage between 76 to 100 tons

Note: The SFMC Mecha Manual Edition 2006 states that the Medium tonnage is between 40-55, Heavy tonnage is between 60-75, and Assult tonnage is between 80-100. While most concepts can full under the tonnage listed within the manual, for proper classification purposes the full range of tonnage is used here.
