Once the overall Body Frame Type is selected for production the next is

Power Plant from the simple muscle driven domesticated animal to the highest level of magic or science developed tech provide the power for the mecha to move about the battlefield landscape of the campaign world

Propulsion: is the method in which the mecha traverses the battlefield landscape as following
Wheel: Single Mono wheel to eighteen plus long haul semi-trailers over uniform road surfaces
Half-Track: A combination of wheels and tracks allowing for decent movement across most terrains
Hover: Air Cushion or Anti-Gravity Repulsion allows for movement across all terrains
Cyborg/Bipedal/Multipedal: Basic bulky or streamlined suits of Exoskeleton Suits, Power Suits, Power Armors, and other vertically designed mecha. Can include animal formed mecha as seen in Zoids, Voltron and other
Track: Best for cross country terrains where roads are few and far apart.
Propeller/Helicopter; Basic Aircraft in planetary environments
Jet: Successor to Propeller driven Aircraft and most Aerospace mecha
VTOL: Vertical Take-Off and Landing capable of deployment from limited space.

Transmission:

Suspension:

Armor is limited to the Military and Civilian mecha that have been turned into Technical and Armored Variants for various protective services. Thickness is limited to Body Frame Type I. Material Composition is limited by the Campaign Setting and Progress Technology Levels so basically you could have say and Ironwood wagon with quarter inch Mithril plate overtop of the wagon.

Weapon Systems can be any KEW, MAW, DEW, or other from the Corebooks with appropriate modifications to them. Because seriously, you the pilot of a Stryder or bipedal chicken leg walker as seen in GenLock fires the 20mm autocannon with a mix of HEI Airburst detonation rounds at the enemy quickly dispatching your opponent infantry squad.
