Level Structure

Commanders start at level 1 with their default weapon. At level 2 they get to choose two modifications; at all subsequent levels they get three.

The types of modification are:

Primary Weapon, consuming one weapon slot

Secondary Weapon, consuming one weapon slot

Module, with individual limits on quantity

Weapon Aug, requiring a specific weapon to be previously or concurrently selected

Minor Subsystem, consuming one subsystem slot

Major Subsystem, consuming one subsystem slot

Weapon Slots: Start with one, second is unlocked at level 4. The starting slot cannot be filled by a secondary weapon. <Can the level-4 slot be filled by a primary weapon?>

Subsystem Slots: Unlocked at level 3, 5 and 7. The level 3 slot cannot be filled by a major subsystem. (Optional: Some subsystems can "cheat" and be placed in the first slot at level 2 e.g. Jump on a Recon chassis.)
