Vanguard-class Titan protagonist of Titanfall 2
BT-7274, who is also referred to as "BT", is a Vanguard-class Titan featuring heavily in Titanfall 2's single player campaign.
His pilot was killed in action; after this, he immediately linked with Jack Cooper, who is his current pilot. He was interrogated by command for this bonding, which apparently violated several rules and practices.
He is asked his three protocols during this interrogation, which he states as "(1)Link to Pilot", "(2)Uphold the Mission", and "(3)Protect the Pilot". These three protocols govern his interactions with Jack Cooper and how he handles combat in the field.
As a Vanguard-Class Titan, BT has an interesting ability in that he can acquire loadouts from the other 7 regular Titans(one of them being exclusive to the singleplayer instead of being given the Monarch loadout), and synthesize their weapons and abilities. You can switch between each ability on the fly, allowing for some quick manipulation of skillsets.
BT-7274 is a Vanguard-class Titan, the first to be designed by the Militia. With Vanguards, The Militia no longer needed to steal IMC Titans off the production lines to supply their Pilots. A Vanguard-class Titan must obey three protocols:
Protocol 1: Link to Pilot
Protocol 2: Uphold the Mission
Protocol 3: Protect the Pilot
While the IMC considers its Titans and Pilots to be interchangeable and disposable, the Militia views each of its new Vanguard Pilot-Titan units as a long-term investment. As a result, an experienced Vanguard Titan-Pilot team is far more flexible and deadlier than any single IMC Titan and Pilot on the Frontier. To BT-7274, his Pilot isn't just a teammate, but also a friend.
