Double cockpit

A Double cockpit is not a viable component for unit construction under BattleTech rules. It is sometimes erroneously used to refer to

  • Command Console, an extra set of controls for BattleMechs including command, control & communication gear (typically for a commander leading from the front line);
  • Dual Cockpit, a tandem-layout cockpit that shares 'Mech operation between two pilots

Any regular 'Mech cockpit may include facilities for a second person: Some 'Mechs are described as featuring an emergency seat with little or no controls (like the Hatchetman or Grasshopper), others are dedicated trainers despite having merely a regular cockpit installed (like the Chameleon or the Crockett). Yet other 'Mechs such as the Stinger have famously cramped cockpits that barely have room for the pilot and are apparently unsuited for taking a passenger along.
