Are there mods that allow that? Is it technically possible? There are so many Mechs with so many configurations, it's killing me that I can only use four in a battle.

Yes, there is an exceptionally fine mod from CWolfs for additional Lances. It has also been incorporated into some of the leading BATTLETECH MegaMods too. All these and more can be found on GitHub.

I believe there are actually 2 separate mods that are often included together. Cwolf's Mission Control mod allows more dynamic contracts (bigger maps, more spawn locations, extra enemies, bigger lances, dynamic withdrawal, etc.), and BiggerDrops by Morphyum (I think) that allows the player to drop more than 4 mechs (up to 8 mechs and 4 vehicles in some implementations).

Excellent news, thank you lads.

For people Googling about this in the future, the updated Bigger Drops is here: MOD Edit: no unapproved links

Bigger Drops works flawlessly with random battles but unfortunately does not seem to work with campaign/story missions. Or is there a setting somewhere that I need to modify?

EDIT:

You need to edit Mission Control settings via Notepad and switch BiggerDrops working with Flashpoints and Story missions from FALSE to TRUE.

EDIT2: I was wondering why you guys didn't post links but now I see why. I guess approved links don't exist? :p

They do, but have to be approved by an administrator:

Okay stjobe, can you ask the administrator to approve GitHub links then. Also, do you have a list of approved sites that I can peruse, like is Nexus Mods allowed? How about Mediafire and Google Drive? What about Reddit and Discord?
