Extended LRM-15 C-bill cost
« on: 22 May 2013, 11:40:05 »
As requested in the Errata Discussion Thread on that board, I'm redirecting this question here.

I think I've found what may be an error in the current TacOps errata document (version 3.03). It states on p. 111 that the C-bill cost for the Extended LRM-15 should be 218,750. This doesn't seem to fit well into the general ELRM cost progression (see below), but would appear to be a better match for the Enhanced LRM-15, whose C-bill cost is indeed a bit the odd one out:

ELRM-5: 60,000 C-bills
ELRM-10: 200,000 C-bills
ELRM-15: 350,000 C-bills pre-, 218,750 (?) post-errata
ELRM-20: 500,000 C-bills

NLRM-5: 37,500 C-bills
NLRM-10: 125,000 C-bills
NLRM-15: 157,000 C-bills
NLRM-20: 312,500 C-bills

So...typo? Should that erratum refer to the Enhanced LRM-15 instead of the Extended one?

Hi,

Huh. No idea where that errata even came from....

Thanks,

I've looked at some older errata files I still had lying around on my hard drive. It now seems that that note dates all the way back to version 1.0...except that in all versions I have up to and including 3.02 it does indeed refer to the Enhanced LRM-15.

Given that the "enhanced" => "extended" switch also seems to coincide with the incorporation of the more recent support vehicle space errata for the Extended LRM-15 and -20 into the "Full Errata" section and that it's itself in turn not listed as a new addition...it could still be intended as a recent fix to the older versions, but the typo explanation looks more likely at the moment.
