Default Titan Battledress: T5 Mecha?

Armor and Robots. Armor for sophonts and Humaniform or Sophontiform robots are produced in Standard (same size as the Sophont), Oversize (double size), and Titan (triple size).

For example, an Oversize Humaniform Robot is twice the size (height) of a human. A Titan Battledress for a human is triple the size (height) of a human (p 223).
I was struck by the illustration of Titan Battle Dress-13 on page 224.

Has anyone played around with these larger armor sizes to simulate mecha?

TL-13 is interesting, and suggests that some theatres of the Solomani Rim War might have featured mecha and robot units slugging it out. The Confederation at this point was mostly TL13 and many Imperial units, particularly reserve ones, seemed to be TL13. I could also see that battlefield meson guns would probably render titan battledress obsolete -- what TL are those introduced? TL14?
