Standard Cockpit System
The Standard Cockpit System, SCS, is a lot like an arcade video game or the controls of a car. The pilot sits inside a cockpit and uses joysticks, buttons, switches, etc., in order to pilot the mech. This provides for a safer, if slower, suit. This suit has an escape option, basically jettisoning the cockpit itself and abandoning the suit, should it happen to be intensely damaged or about to be destroyed.
