    Compatible with Second Wave, but not currently Legion. Future Legion compatibility will be added.

    Most units in Section 17 were either rejected models, rejected unit roles, or rejected implementations from Second Wave. In many cases, they may be all of these.

    In fact, even the name "Section 17" was a candidate name for Second Wave that was rejected.

    In general, Section 17 is less serious of a mod than Second Wave is.

    Lore Background
    Section 17 derives its name from a planet in old Galactic War lore, specifically:

    One of the main archetypes in Section 17 is that of the "Experimental", an alternative T3 unit class. Experimentals will be faction-neutral in the future.

    All experimentals require a large amount of energy to maintain, with heavy passive energy draw alongside additional heavy energy draw while in use.

    Compared to Titans, Experimentals require less metal to replace assuming that one already has the energy infrastructure required to field them.

    Most experimentals tend to fulfill specific, but powerful, niches. There are some exceptions, like the Floater.
