The following units are listed as 'Standard' tech. Looking at the record sheets, they should be classified as 'Introductory'

Darter Scout Car

The Cobra Transport VTOL (Original) has no rules level, but the record sheet classifies it as introtech

The Darter Scout Car (SRM 2) lacks a BV (167) and a Rules Level (record sheet tags it as introtech)

After setting up a complete set of factories for our online campaign, I did notice that there was a notable lack of advanced tech in the RWA, despite the language of FR:2765:

Quote
Intelligence Command reports also show that, since the Twentieth Army left Republic space [2755], each of these divisions has been slowly cycling older BattleMechs out of its ranks, replacing them with models normally seen only from Hegemony sources.

This seems to indicate that, for 12 years, the Imperial Divisions were modernizing with SLDF equipment. Feels like some of the TRO:2750 designs would be listed in the "Rim Worlds Republic: Home Guard", such as those listed in 2765 on page 18 (Black Knight, Excalibur, Highlander, King Crab) and on page 19 (Atlas).

Surely, these advanced designs went with the Liberation Army to Terra, but for those 12 years, they were in the Republic proper. I'm sure it's come up before, but just asking if you guys can take a look. The list feels a bit "anemic" for a force capable of defeating the SLDF on its home ground. :)

The Titan TI-1Aj and Titan TI-1Ar have intro dates of 3023, but Late Republic Era badges. The -1Aj contains a number of advanced technologies that do not exist at the time. The -1Ar. while using strictly Star League tech, is quite out of place in the 3020s as well.

Solution: Was the intro date for these supposed to be 3123?

---------------

The Victor VTR-9B (Li) from OTP: Death to Mercenaries is listed as Standard tech. I can't see any advanced tech on the sheet.

Hachiwara HCA-6P had incorrect Armor value (208 points of Hardened Armor is 14 AV, not 10).  Was missing CR from specials list (Hardened Armor), OV should have been 1, not 2.  (5 Medium Lasers + ER PPC w/Capacitor = 3.25 damage, adjusted by heat to 2.32), PV should have been 48.

Card adjusted.

Cauldron-Born X lacking long range damage value (The RAC is a Clan model, not Inner Sphere) and has CASE instead of CASEII special.  Both errors corrected.

Sunder SD1-OR had an incorrect LR damage value of 1.  Changed it to a 3 (The Large Pulse Lasers are Clantech)

Panther PNT-9ALAG (from CM: Kurita, Pg. 54)  does not come in up in searches.  There is an entry in the clan invasion section for House Kurita for a PNT-10LAG (which seems to be the unit described in FM: Kurita, pg. 94), but this does not appear in searches either. 

Also, no card is provided for the extant PNT-10LAG (I'm assuming that this and the PNT-9ALAG are the same machine?)

Also, I wonder about the 3054 entry date on the PNT-10LAG's MUL entry.  The description on Pg. 54 (last paragraph of main body text) of CM: Kurita suggests that the modifications for the PNT-9ALAG are such that it would be possible to field the design during the Late Succession Wars (Renaissance).

To my knowledge, none of the combat manual only entries have been added to the mul. Without a record sheet, it is unknown if the 10ALAG is based upon the 9R or the 10K.

I was wondering:  Would it be possible to add an option to download Alpha Strike cards as "one card per page", with the the circles able to be filled in while being read in the pdf?  I would like to not have to print out all these cards every time I want to play, and adding a few simple things to a pdf will make it easy to use on a small screen like a phone or tablet.

Here is an example of what I mean:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8kqPO6A6VFgR0FtclY0Mm5qdGs

The dots and heat scale can be manipulated in adobe reader for Linux, Windows, iOS, or Android but not the pdf viewer in the Google drive app.

It would also not be hard to program a pdf to recalculate the inches of movement based on the number of MP hits, the damage based on Weapons hits, or to alter the cost based on the base to hit target (skill level).  It might be better to put that on a legal size page instead of letter, since most screens are 16:9 instead of 4:3

Screamer LAM has availability of Star League Regular, Royal, Terran Hegemony, and Unique. Should also have "Rim Worlds Republic - Terran Corps", since no other faction actually fielded one.

It also appears that several factions need to be updated for availability of Land-Air 'Mechs in the SL era.

Draconis Combine
Field Report: 2765 (DCMS), page 15
Quote
The First Rasalhague Regulars are the showpiece of the Rasalhague District. Based on the SLDF striker regiments, the First has light- to medium-weight BattleMechs, a dedicated aerospace fighter wing, and a company of Land-Air ’Mechs. It also contains a significant number of Star League-designed BattleMechs, produced both within the Combine or purchased from SLDF surplus. The First Rasalhague’s LAMs are thus one of the most advanced tools in the Combine’s arsenal, produced by LexaTech Industries on Irece.

Outworlds Alliance
Field Report: 2765 (Periphery), page 9
Quote
Positions in the WarShip training programs are the most highly sought after in the RSSCO, but the largest classes focus on aerospace fighter and small craft programs, which also includes training for the Alliance’s few Land-Air ’Mech pilots.

Rim Worlds Republic
Field Report: 2765 (Periphery), page 21
Quote
In addition to these assets, each division’s lighter weight ’Mech assets includes of a full battalion of Land-Air ’Mechs, spread out unevenly between each of the division’s nine regiments. These LAMs are used as highly effective scouts, to help direct larger Lancers formations towards their targets. Due to this tactical maneuverability, the Amaris Lancer brigades are often the first to be deployed against bandit forces on offensive missions.
...
The most common under-strength elements in the Lancers are their LAM formations. Intelligence Command shows evidence that the Republic is developing its own Land-Air ’Mech production lines somewhere within its territory, as the realm cannot presently secure enough of these flexible machines to keep up with the Lancers’ demand through Hegemony-source imports alone.


There are more in the other reports, but I don't have them in front of me ATM. :)

Errata had already been issued for the Record Sheet, but the Unit Card doesn't match the TRO entry (TRO3060 p.203)

http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=4021.msg272449#msg272449

Per the ASC p.90-141
Weapon Values should be 2/2/0 [0.7x2 or 1.4/1.4/0 for 2 ERML]
PV should increase to 12 PV (a +3 increase from the change in damage)
...everything else looks good.

Is this a correct change that needs to be made?
Whomever said violence isn't a solution obviously wasn't using enough.

Research into the Record Sheet confirmed the omission of the 2nd ERML on the Minotaur [Standard] that exists in TRO3060.

My calculation is unofficial, but it is based on the current methods.  Someone else with the proper authority is welcome to check against it and make the appropriate correction


**EDIT** I revisited my calculations...

Minotaur [Standard] with 2 ERML (per the TRO entry)
OFV = 6.5  (2+2+0+2 Damage + 0.5 Size)
DFV = 4.75
  DIR = 3.5 [(1 armor x 2 + 1 structure) x 1(1+ 1 TMM/10); Round to nearest half]
  MF = 1.25 (6 / 8 + 0.5 jump)
GFB = +0

Total PV = 11.25 ~ 11 (rounded down)

Proposed changes on the MUL:
Change PV to 11
Change Damage to 2/2/0

Goblin Medium Tank (Standard) in  Civil War Era is available only for St. Ives Compact. Isn't it an error?

The Zeus-X ZEU-X is given an introduction date of 3054, though it has reactive armor which has a prototype date of 3063(DC), production ~3083(DC) (IO, p. 35; this date is unchanged from TO, 282).
