Chassis Reinforcement refers to a simple welded plate of alloy attached to a Heavy Gear or vehicle to help it cause additional damage when making physical attacks. They are more common among Gears as their humanoid design allows them to more effectively delivery physical blows when engaged in close combat, such as in the form of a spiked gauntlet. For other vehicles these can come in the form of bumper plates and the like.
