This is for use in conjunction with the Improvised Mecha Unit aka "Frankenmecha" section in the supplement: Robotech The New Generation Sourcebook, published by Palladium Books for the Robotech The Shadow Chronicles Roleplaying Game.

I however HATE the term "Frankenmecha" and for that reason I will using the term "Stinger" from the novel Robotech The Zentraedi Rebellion. I will also use the term I-Moo.


Notes -

Official and Unofficial Arms, Legs and Weapon systems can be used by either of the Official or Unofficial Chassis types.

Sensor systems by and large can be jury rigged from any mecha to another thus they are not given a seperate entry. This includes targeting systems, RADAR etc.

Gunpods - Typically gunpods from smaller units cannot be used by large units as their hands are too big to hold and fire the trigger. However the opposite is not true of gunpods from larger units. They can be used by smaller units but may be awkward and unwieldly to use.

In the vast majority of cases used limbs not originally meant for a transformable unit will negate the transformability

Also MANY of the unofficial units listed are uncommon to extremely rare in availability.
