The Heavy Gear Glossary

The below is a listing of abbreviations and terms related to the Heavy Gear game setting. This list is based off the "Heavy Gear Acronym List" but this version will be updated and expanded to include slang, technical terminology, and other useful terms. By it's nature, this is a mix of 'in-game' terms a character might say as well as game-related terms.

The origional Heavy Gear Acronym List and this page are the result of uncounted hours of work from contributors including John Buckmaster, John D. Prins, Jonathan Bezeau, Rabid Southie Lleyrew, Manshoba, Michael P Oshea, Mario Therault, Jason Andreson, Andrew G. Paul and others.
