Meh, there was nothing wrong with hot dropping entire spaceship dropships straight from the jumpship and not just single mechs.. no reason to change that. In fact that was one of the coolest thing about Battletech, Nobody did air drops because any even half rookie ground trooper would be able to fire a simple stinger (forgot what the equivalent name for that was in BT) at that heat signature and thus take down any and all "flying" mechs

That is not BattleTech at all in flavor. Missiles are sad, sad things in BattleTech (or armor is really good), and there's no such thing as heat tracking (or the countermeasures are excellent). I don't know the specific rules for shooting at a dropping 'Mech, but I would guess that it would be at a penalty to-hit with possibly a chance to hit the disposable jump pack (if applicable) and cause the 'Mech to take falling damage from a catastrophic height. But most probably you'd just hit against armor as normal and the 'Mech would continue on its merry way.

What with the tiny ranges in BattleTech, you probably wouldn't even be allowed to shoot at the 'Mech unless it was dropping right onto your mapsheet.
