Notes: A heavy civilian mech, the 12-TS “Tassia” is a well-liked Austrian design. In terms of number produced, it is the most numerous mech in existence, with numerous having left Austrian lands and ended up all across the many worlds. Being among the largest of civilian mechs, it is often equipped for militia or policing use with its trademark telescoping halberd, though in some areas this is disallowed, and the mech disarmed. At those times, it is often still allowed its misericorde, which is then often augmented by the optional shield.
