Your mechwarriors gain experience and increase in skill and your arsenal of weapons and mechs grows each mission as you defeat stronger and stronger foes and salvage their mechs and equipment. Mechcommander Gold contains both the expansion campaign and the original Mechcommander campaign as well as three new mechs for each side and several new vehicles.
