Considered by some to be the first true light mech created by the reformed Iron Wolves Empire, it serves more as an infantry support unit than that of a typical light mech. The majority of the armor on the IN-1 surrounds the cockpit to ensure that their pilots are just as safe at the controls of an IN-1 as they are in the more commonly used GX-2. The IN-1's smaller anti-personnel turrets on the nose not only share the same ammunition as their standard RT-5k infantry gauss rifle, but can be detached from the mech and used as a rifle. The intent behind this design choice was that the pilot of an IN-1 would be able to rejoin the battle by pulling one of the rifles off of the nose of the mech, to be scavenged by soldiers in drawn out battles without supply lines, or provide extra ammunition to soldiers when arriving as part of reinforcements.

Its combat role is that of a generalist, having weapons for dealing with infantry and other light vehicles.
