Collapsible Command Module
Introduced in 2710 by the Terran Hegemony, the Collapsible Command Module (CCM) is a mobile headquarters which can be carried and deployed from the torso of a BattleMech, most famously the command variant of the Cyclops. The command bunker can be detached from the 'Mech and set up in 15 minutes, allowing for full command and coordination of an entire regiment.
CCMs provide the full benefit of a Mobile HQ with seven tons of Communication Equipment. Detaching or attaching a CCM requires 30 turns, during which the transporting unit may not engage in combat, and a further 90 turns to set up. The specialized seven-man crew must be transported separately.
