I was surprised that there wasn't a ready reference already made for this subject. So, I searched through the files listed in the Battletech DLC design data (https://github.com/caardappel-hbs/bt-dlc-designdata) and compiled the results here. Does anyone know of any 1.9.1 data that renders this information incorrect?

Looking at this list again, it seems like you could have a set of six mechbays reserved just for flashpoints: 2x 75 tons, 3x 55 tons, 1x 35 tons.

That would let you fill the 240 ton lance limits with 2x 75t, 1x 55t, 1x 35t as well as the 200 ton lance limits with 3x 55t, 1x 35t.

Sadly not as there's the odd mission with maximum per mech weight of 50 tons - I've been caught out that way expecting to take a pair of SDLF Griffons on the Marik flashpoint and instead having to scrape something together from the back of the mech bay.

Always slightly annoyed me that there was two limits so close together. Presumably the ground must be slightly softer or something
