Jump jets funnel superheated air to propel 'Mechs over obstacles in a controlled manner. Additionally, they may also be used to perform the dreaded 'Death from Above' attack.They come in three different varieties, basic (10 to 55 tons), heavy (60 to 85), and assault (90 to 100t).
- Basic jump jets cost 30,000 C-bills each, weigh 0.5 ton and require 1 slot.
- Heavy jump jets cost 60,000 C-bills each, weigh 1 tons and require 1 slot.
- Assault jump jets cost 70,000 C-bills each, weigh 2 tons and require 1 slot.
- Heat : jumping generates 1 heat per 6 meters travelled, therefore at least 4 heat per hex (a hex is 24 meters, divided by increments of 6 meters), but the game also calculates distance increased by terrain elevation, such as jumping over an obstacle or uphill. In all cases, jumping generates a minimum of 5 heat (source: file CombatGameConstants.json).
