The ultimate guidebooks to the weaponry and war machines of the 31st century, BattleTech Technical Readouts describe the BattleMechs, Combat Vehicles, Support Vehicles, aerospace fighters, DropShips, WarShips, infantry and more of the BattleTech universe. Each fully illustrated entry in these reference books contains complete BattleTech game statistics.
Pre-filled record sheets for the various units found in the technical readouts are published separately.
Master Unit List: Online Database
The online Master Unit List (MUL) is a tool for players to quickly and easily sort through all the units found in the Technical Readouts below (and elsewhere) that populate the BattleTech game/universe when creating a force for a game, a campaign, and so on.
In each Technical Readout entry below, links are provided that take you directly to the page where the MUL has already been sorted for just those units found in the book in question. Finally, some units in a Technical Readout may not yet be found in the MUL; it is a living database that’s continually being updated.
As the Quick-Start Rules show-case, BattleTech can be played using almost anything to represent the various units on the game board. However, nothing enhances the visceral feel of a game than miniatures.
Iron Wind Metals produces a full range of metal miniatures for the lion’s share of all the units found in any Technical Readout below. If you cannot order the miniature directly through your local retailer, feel free to order from them directly: www.ironwindmetals.com.
Camo Specs Online is the official source for the camo specs of the BattleTech universe. See more than 600 different schemes already represented, with frequent updates; talk directly to the artists; view never-before-seen canon schemes; submit your own art and become a CSO artist!
Each entry below showcases a sample of miniatures depicting units found in a given Technical Readout (specifically some of those found in each free preview PDF), painted Camo Specs style.

- BattleTech is a science-fiction “space opera”: a factional, militarized universe set in the thirty-first century, a future where humanity has spread to the stars and spawned titanic interstellar empires, each nation controlling hundreds of worlds across a region of space stretching a thousand light years and beyond.
Initially published over thirty years ago as a tabletop board game, BattleTech has gone on to become one of the gaming industry’s most important and longest-lasting science-fiction universes.
