(Redirected from Beta Manufactured Standard)


The Chassis of a Support Vehicle, Combat Vehicle or BattleMech is what the rest of it is built around or inside. Similar to the Human Skeleton a unit's chassis has a major influence on the shape, structure and form that a unit will take.

Internal Structure[edit]

High Technology - Age of War and Succession Wars Technology

Generally, Standard Type Chassis consisted of a foamed aluminum core covered with various composite materials, wrapped in silicon-carbide fibers, and clad in Titanium-Alloyed Steel [1]. Standard Internal Structure can be formed on a planets surface without requiring (expensive and vulnerable) orbital facilities.


Advanced Technology - Star League and post-3050 Inner Sphere Technology

Hyper-Advanced Technology - Clan and post-3065 Inner Sphere Technology

Endomorphic-Steel Chassis are formed in orbital facilities, with each stage carried out under zero-G conditions. The Aluminum Core is foamed and is bulkier than that of Standard Internal Structure, covered with various composite materiels that are mixed and hardened, and clad finally in a Titanium-Steel Alloy. [2]


  • Note the added Chassis models are produced in Clan space and in the Inner Sphere.

Chassis are manufactured on the following planets:
