The frontline mech for the Empire, the GX-2 is a walking tank with few weaknesses. The largest weakness of the GX-2 is speed, traded away in favor of more armor. While far from indestructible, these mechs are more often crippled than destroyed and can be brought back into service condition shortly after salvage should the wreck be in friendly territory after the battle. What's more impressive is the survival rate of pilots of these mechs.

Imperial forces opted out of having a true light mech in their lineup due the difficulties in creating light mechs that were sufficiently armored to protect their few pilots. The size, tonnage and firepower of their smallest mechs would have them classified as a compact medium mech rather than a light mech.
