Heavy Battlemechs are used by the elite units of the successor states. These fearsome mechanical beasts are usually heavily armored with heavy weapons. They are usually not very mobile, but in a stand up combat, only another heavy or assault 'Mech can survive even exchanges with them.
The successor states have a few in common, but each has at least one model that is pretty much unique to their house.
