Created by N&D WorkMechs of Furillo, the Quad legged Uni CargoMech was introduced in 3050. The 'Mech's design owes its development to N&D's earlier creation, the 80 ton Lugger SalvageMech. By 3068, it represents the standard industrial-grade CargoMech used in the Inner Sphere.[2]

The design has been used throughout the former Federated Commonwealth, including the militaries of former Alliance states, mercenaries, and corporations.[2] It has also been used by Periphery forces as both a transport and an armed response unit.[3]

The Uni name is an abbreviation for "Universal".

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Uni is powered by Defiance Motors' fuel cell engine, which allows the 'Mech to carry up to 17 tons of cargo. The 'Mech features two lift hoists mounted on both rear torsos. This allows the 'Mech to drag battlefield salvage when necessary.[2]

The chassis is encased in nine tons of commercial armor, which is also environmentally sealed to allow the 'mech to be used in hostile environments.[2]


  • ATAE-70A ArtilleryMech 
    Designed and used by a group of pirates in Astrokaszy, this jury-rigged Dark Age variant bears a Thumper Artillery Piece and a ton of ammunition, as well as cargo space and an infantry compartment. BV (2.0) = 865[4]
  • ATAE-70M Uni MilitiaMech 
    This version of the Uni was created to meet a request from the Donegal March Militia in 3053. The Uni MilitiaMech carried a pair of Autocannon/5s and SRM-4 launchers. A single ton of ammunition was provided for each weapon type, and an extra heat sink kept the heat under control. The MilitiaMech was intended for use as a battlefield support unit rather than direct combat. It was widely exported to the Donegal March and the Periphery March before the FedCom Civil War.[5] Its most notable action was on Bucklands during the Jade Falcon Incursion. The Jade Falcon warriors quickly destroyed these 'Mechs because they continued to use Commercial Armor. BV (2.0) = 736[6][7]
  • ATAE-70T
    Almost identical to the standard ATAE-70, this version is equipped with Industrial Triple Strength Myomer. It also carries a ten ton cargo container in the center torso. Its performance, armor, etc. is otherwise identical to the standard ATAE-70. BV (2.0) = 542[8]
