As the MechCommander, you control a company of mercenary MechWarriors in a real-time game of power, combat, and treachery set in the BattleTech® Universe. Drawn into a bitter struggle for supremacy among three warring noble houses, you must use your strategic knowledge and tactical skills to change the balance of power in a region of space known as the Chaos March.

Command enormous BattleMechs
In MechCommander 2, MechWarriors take their orders from you! From your dropship, you command up to 16 BattleMechs—from the nimble Raven, equipped with sensors and electronic countermeasures, to the massive Atlas, bristling with deadly firepower. Choose from some of the most popular ‘Mechs in BattleTech history, as well as 4 never before seen in the BattleTech Universe.

Put the right MechWarrior in the right ‘Mech for the mission
Leverage the unique strengths of each ‘Mech and each MechWarrior to create tactical advantages. Customize your units and train your pilots to create the ultimate pairing of man and machine. Use sensor ‘Mechs to uncover enemy locations. Use long-range ‘Mechs to weaken incoming assaults. Use jump 'Mechs to bypass enemy fortifications.

The power to take – and use - what you want
Capture a weapons facility and refit your 'Mechs with superior new technology. Take a turret control building and watch your enemy’s 'Mechs get cut to pieces by his own defenses. Fly in a Salvage Craft, grab a downed enemy’s 'Mech and use it against him in the same mission.

Fully 3D state-of-the-art terrain determines your tactics
Sensors, probes, and scouts become vital strategic elements when faced with varying geography. Knock down trees, blow through walls, jump-jet onto cliffs and step on anything standing in your way to victory. Move from epic scale to up-close and personal with the easy-to-use camera controls. Night missions add atmosphere and a new game play dimension.

Extensive, persistent campaign
Develop your team into the perfect fighting force: with each mission your ‘Mech pilots gain skill, moving from fresh-faced metal jockeys to elite MechWarriors. Emerging weapon, armor, and other custom upgrades ensure that you’re on the cutting edge of destruction.

Is there a reason that the components and mech chassis available to buy after missions is so limited on the Carver V campaign?

I downloaded an expansion from Wolfman-x which gives you access to a lot more units, building etc to create new mission with but everytime I save a mission the editor stops working, literally, I click on save as and it says "MC2 Editor has stopped working" can anyone help? I have asked wolfman-x but i haven't had a reply yet.

I'm curious has any mod made a RTS style game play? Is this even possible on this engine or is the standard Multi-Player choose your pilots and variants to drop in with hard coded? What I mean by RTS is mech/ vehicle building (mid game) and maybe a base to destroy that controls unit deployment?

This was a great game, imho. I played it so many times when it first came out. If you liked this game, you should check out the MechCommander Omnitech mod on this site (for the lazy: ) It is built from the original source released by Microsoft, except with tons of updates - new mechs, updated graphics, AI, and gameplay. Its ridiculously awesome.
