P. 43, terrain modifiers section.
After "if the target occupies wooded terrain"
Add “, the attacker occupies wooded terrain, or if the line of sight passes through intervening wooded terrain.”

P.46, physical attack example
"Knowing that the Target modifier for a DFA is 1 point higher than a charge attack"
change to
"Knowing that the Target modifier for a DFA is 2 points higher than a charge attack"

P.44, Attack Modifiers Table footnotes
change the footnote references 6-10 to be 5-9 instead. Also, change the footnote reference on ‘Is airborne Aerospace’ from 11 to 10.

P.46, physical attack example
Error: in regard to attacker damage from a DFA, the example reads, “If the Vindicator misses, it will suffer one point of damage for its trouble (0 because the vindicator size is less than three, + 1).”
Correction: “If the Vindicator misses, it will suffer three points of damage for its trouble (2 for its size + 1).” The DFA rule above this example states that a failed DFA results in damage to the attacker equal to the attackers size plus 1.

P.181 Altitude Bombing section
Delete redundant “There must be at least one POI per 2 inches along the path and a minimum of one bomb dropped at each POI.”

P.182 step 5, bombing
“if For every bomb attack that fails”
Change to:
"For every bomb attack that fails"

P.182 step 6, dropship attacks
 “...while striking attacks by DropShips use the units rear weapon arc if the unit is a spheroid DropShip.”
Change to:
“...while Striking attacks by DropShips will use the front weapon arc if they are aerodyne DropShips or the rear weapon arc if they are spheroid DropShips.”

P.185 step 4
“(such as previous Crew Hit of Fire Control Hit...”
Change to:
“(such as previous Crew Hit or Fire Control Hit...”

P.188 CAP, SCAP, and MSL
“...though they make attack separate targets...”
Change to “...though they may attack separate targets...”

P.188 3rd paragraph
“They can engage air units, make strike attacks, or strafe with their Nose firing ark.”
Change to: “They can engage air units or strafe with their Nose ark, or they can make strike attacks with their Rear ark.”

P.41 indirect fire
“Note that aerospace units can spot for indirect fire while they are in the Central Zone, provided they have the Recon (RCN) special ability.”
Change to:
“Note that aerospace units can spot for indirect fire provided they have the Recon (RCN) special ability.”

pg 36.  Submersible Movement
"spending 1 inch of Move for every 1-inch increase"
change to
"spending 2 inches of Move for every 1-inch increase"

Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Movement
"spending 1 inch of Move for every 1-inch increase"
change to
"spending 2 inches of Move for every 1-inch increase"

p39. Transporting Infantry Example.
"The Maxim has a Move of 16 inches. It spends 4 inches to mount both infantry platoons. The Maxim has 12 inches of Move left available. Lara moves the Maxim 8 inches straight ahead. She then spends 4 inches of additional Move to dismount both infantry platoons."
change to
"The infantry move first, saving at least 2 inches of their Move in order to mount the Maxim. After all the infantry have mounted, Lara then moves the Maxim up to its Move of 16 inches and then dismounts all the infantry."

p37, Movement Basics Example and Diagram
"If the player would rather place his ’Mech in the water, he can move the ’Mech 3 inches to the water’s edge, spend 4 inches of Move for the elevation change into the water and then spend 3 inches of Move to push through 1.5 inches of water terrain."
change to
"If the player would rather place his ’Mech in the water, he can move the ’Mech 3 inches to the water’s edge, spend 2 inches of Move for the elevation change into the water and then spend 3 inches of Move to push through 1.5 inches of water terrain."

Pg 47.   Artillery Range and Damage Table.
add
Cruise Missile/50   ART-CM5   5   2"
Cruise Missile/70   ART-CM7   7/2   6"
Cruise Missile/90   ART-CM9   9/4   6"
Cruise Missile/120   ART-CM12 12/5   6"

Pg 138.  Artillery Emplacements, 5th Paragraph.   
Change example to read:
For example, a player wishing to arm a CF 15 building with artillery weapons could select a weapon as powerful as a Cruise Missile/70, which can deliver a maximum 7 points of damage per standard-ammo attack. But the same building may not mount the next size up in artillery weapons—the Cruise Missile/90—because its
maximum damage value of 9 points exceeds half of the building’s CF.

Pg 151, 209
change "Artillery Attack Modifiers Table" 
to "Off-Board Artillery Attack Modifiers Table"

p38, Maximum Jump Height
"A jumping unit can jump over any terrain that is lower in height than its jump Move rating, so a unit with 6 inches of jumping Move
may jump over any obstructions less than 6 inches tall."
change to
"A jumping unit can jump over any terrain up to half its jump Move rating (rounded down) plus it's starting elevation , so a unit with 6 inches of jumping Move, standing on a 2" high hill, can jump 5" high and may jump over a 2" tall building on top of a 3" high hill. "

p40, Line of Sight
add after last paragraph
"If terrain is occupied by the unit, the first 2" of that terrain extending away from the base of the unit is still considered the occupied terrain.  Occupied terrain more than 2" from the base of the unit becomes intervening terrain. For example, if a unit occupies a building, and is within 2" of the edge of the building, the building is occupied but not intervening so it does not block LOS.  If the same unit occupies a building, and line of sight is drawn through more than 2" of the building, then building is now intervening and blocks LOS.  For Woods, if the unit occupies the Woods, the first 2" away from the base of the unit does not count toward the 6" of Woods blocking LOS."

p74, Skidding
"-The unit ended its previous Movement Phase on pavement/ road/bridge terrain types (see p. 35), or on ice terrain (see p. 56).
-The unit is beginning its Movement Phase by travelling at least 1 inch on any one of those same terrain types."
replace with
"-The unit moves more than half it's Move rating on pavement/road/bridge terrain types (see p. 35), or on ice terrain (see p. 56), during a single Movement Phase. "

p118, Striker/Cavalry Lance Bonus Ability
add (round normal) after 75 percent of the units

p120, Pursuit Lance Bonus Ability
add (round normal) after 75 percent of the units

Good news is that you crazy kids have run through CGL's stock of Commander's Edition.  That means a rapid reprint, and the rapid issue of errata to match.  All changes noted will feature in the second printing.

There appears to be no mention of what happens if both units succeed on their control rolls.  Presumably, both units may attack each other but neither is tailing the other?

P175, Multiple Attack Rolls
Before Multi-Tasker and Ground-Hugger, add:
"Damage Modifiers: A damage modifier from the attacker (a choice of the attacker, the use of a special ability or special pilot ability, etc) or from terrain or an environmental condition (being underwater, an attack from the rear, etc) is applied before determining the number of attack rolls. A unit with 3 damage, attacking from the rear arc, would roll four attack rolls.
A damage modifier from the target (armor special abilities, anti-missile system, etc) is applied after all attack rolls are resolved and the final damage determined. A unit with 3 damage and the SRM special ability attacking a target with AMS would roll three attack rolls.  If only one of them is successful, the AMS would reduce the damage by 1, except the minimum of 1 rule would still apply and the target would take 1 damage.
Lucky/Floats Like A Butterfly: Each point of Lucky or Floats Like a Butterfly rerolls the entire attack.
Marksman/Sharpshooter: The critical chance from these special abilities is only applicable on the first attack roll of each attack."
After Natural 12, add:
"Weapon Specialist: The Weapon Specialist may choose to reroll a single attack roll each turn. "

Add Multiple Attack Roll Example
"An AWS-9M Awesome (attack values: 4/4/3) executes an attack against an enemy Bushwaker at its medium range and is attacking the rear of the Bushwacker, giving the Awesome four attack rolls from its medium range damage value plus one for a rear attack. The Awesome has the Sharpshooter Special Pilot Ability (pXX) that causes a critical hit if the margin of success is three or more. The Bushwacker has taken five damage to its Armor in previous turns, leaving it with one Armor and three Structure remaining and has been customized with Reflective Armor (RFA special, see pXX).
Using Multiple Attack Rolls, the Awesome rolls 12, 8, 12, 7 and 3.  Four attack rolls succeed, and two of them succeed with a margin of 3 or greater.  Two of the attack rolls are natural 12s.  The Reflective Armor (RFA) special reduces the damage from all attacks by one. This results in the attack doing three damage to the Bushwacker, plus a single critical hit from the Sharpshooter Special Ability, and a single critical hit from the natural 12 rule.
The Bushwacker then applies the three damage, marking off one Armor and two Structure. The two Structure damage causes another single critical hit. It has one Structure remaining assuming it survives the critical hits."

p185, Example
change to
"Side A has two aerospace fighters, A1 and A2. Side B has two aerospace fighters, B1 and B2. All units are Skill 4.
Side B won Initiative for this turn.
Side A starts the Combat Phase as the Initiative loser. A1 makes an attack on B1.
Both A1 and B1 make Control Rolls. Both have a target number of the Skill rating 4, plus 2 for air-to-air combat, for a final target number of 6. A1 rolls 2D6 and succeeds with a 7 result. B1 rolls 2D6 and fails its Control Roll with a 5. Because A1 succeeded and B1 failed, A1 is now tailing B1. A1 receives a –2 target number modifier to its attacks for tailing B1.
A2 then makes an attack on B1. A2 rolls a 6, succeeding. B1 rolls an 11, which succeeds. A2 can attack B1, B1 can attack A2.
Now it is Side B’s turn for the Combat Phase.
B1 is being tailed by A1 from earlier engagement roll and cannot fire in its rear arc and so is unable to hit A1. B1 can attack A2, or make an air-to-ground attack instead if it prefers.
B2 makes an attack on A1. There was no previous engagement roll here, so the players make one now. B2 rolls a 7 and succeeds. A1 rolls an 8 and succeeds. B2 can attack A1 from the front with no modifiers from the engagement roll positioning."

Version 3 PDF:

Page 7

The Dark Age era is listed as (3081+). As of IlClan and Hour of the Wolf, this should be revised to (3081-3150).

Page 110

The second paragraph on this page refers to the range of Availability Eras, "from the Age of War through the present Dark Age setting". As of 2021, should this be revised to "the present IlClan setting"? Or, since the coverage of the IlClan Era remains tentative in MUL terms, should the line read something like: "from the Age of War through the Dark Age, with coverage of the present IlClan setting in the process of being added"?

Mechanized Battle Armor (see p. 38) and External Cargo (see p. 163) have some exceptions. They still cannot be targeted separately, but attacks against its transport can damage the transported units instead. They are damaged by area effect attacks, and if their transport is destroyed, they are not destroyed but immediately dismounted or dropped."

It's time for a new reprint of AS:CE, which means time for new errata.  Preview version can be found in the first post as normal; anything posted after this will appear in later printings.

"Wait", you're saying, "didn't AS:CE just get reprinted a month ago?"  Yes it did.  Go Battletech, I guess. :)

So I've just been informed that there was a communication foul-up somewhere along the line and what I understood to be the 5th printing was just more information about the 4th printing.  I've updated the errata accordingly (mostly the version numbering) to reflect this.  Apologies for the confusion.

EDIT: just got some fresh errata so give it ten minutes before downloading while I update it again.

"They have a 0 TMM, for no Target Number modifier."

"It has 5 Move, giving it a target modifier of +2."

"It has a TMM of 1 and it jumped this turn for +2 Target Number modifier total."

"The Modified Target Number is 7 [3 (Skill Rating) + 0 (short range) + 2 (target movement) + 1 (woods) + 1 (partial cover) = 7]."

"It has an 8” Move, giving it a Target Number modifier of +1."
change to
"It had a 2 TMM, but a motive hit has reduced the TMM to 1, giving a +1 Target Number modifier.

p35, before Aerospace Movement 
Elevation and Units:
A unit with an elevation above the ground (from VTOL and WiGE movement for example) is considered to physically be at that distance above the play area for all purposes. These units are usually left represented on the “ground” level, but for all game purposes the miniature, including base, is considered to be the elevation’s inches above the ground. The miniature or other temporary stand-in, should be held at the elevation above the table to determine line of sight, base to base contact, or any other check on the unit’s location.

p46, Melee Physical Attacks
After “Melee physical attacks can only occur when the attacking unit is within 2 inches of its target and the target unit is also within the attacking unit’s firing arc (see Firing Arcs, p. 41).”
add
“If a unit is at a different elevation than the attacker, the difference in elevation is added to the distance. Thus, a ‘Mech on a hill at the edge of a 2” range of Melee and 1” above the attacker could not be attacked by a Melee physical attack.”

Suggest removing paragraph or changing to:
End Phase Heat Application: If a unit is Overheating (see p. 53), follow the steps for Cooling Down below. Deliberate Overheating is applied after the Cooling Down process.

ASCE v4.1 p52

p34, Movement Cost Table
Footnote 9
change to
"Infantry, ground vehicles, ProtoMechs, and WiGEs may not perform elevation changes greater than 1” per 2” travelled. ’Mechs may not make elevation changes over 2” per 2” travelled."
(the second sentence of this was changed in 4th printing, but the change to the first sentence was missed)

Level Changes, p35
"(per inch of horizontal travel)"
change both instances to
"(per 2 inches of horizontal travel)"

Overrun Combat, p107
At of second paragraph, add
"The damage effects of attacks from Overrun Combat are resolved immediately."

p32, Stacking
add a new paragraph after the first paragraph
"An entire unit's base must fit within any terrain restrictions. For example, if two enemy units are 1" from each other, an enemy unit may not move between them, as the 1 1/4" base will not fit between those two enemy units. This would break the stacking restrictions above.  If there is only 1" between two 3" high elevation changes, units cannot fit between the two at the ground level. This would break the movement rules for elevation changes and is prohibited terrain (see p34, Movement Cost Table for list of prohibited terrain for different unit types). Similarly, a unit must be legally able to cross all terrain its base occupies. A 'Mech can stand on a slope that is 2" high because 'Mechs can move across an elevation change of 2" per 2" traveled. A 'Mech cannot stand or move through where it's base occupies both a 0" elevation and a 3" elevation as a 3" elevation change is prohibited terrain for 'Mechs."

p39, Ground Unit Transport
Add after last sentence in this section
"A transport may not mount/embark and dismount/disembark units in the same turn. Once a transport has mounted/embarked units, it may not dismount/disembark any units that turn, and once a transport has dismounted/disembarked units, it may not mount/embark units. A unit may not mount/embark and dismount/disembark in the same turn either."

p39, Extended Mechanized Special Ability
"However, the transport"
change to
"However, a non-OMNI transport"

p46, Charge Attacks
“The charging unit’s damage is based on its weight and the distance it traveled in the Movement Phase. The damage from a successful charge is equal to the number of inches moved, multiplied by the charging unit’s Size value, and divided by 8—rounding all fractions normally. Thus, a Size 3 unit charging 6 inches to its target would deliver 2 points of damage on a successful attack (6 [inches] x 3 [Size] ÷ 8 = 2.25, rounded normally to 2).”
Change to
“The charging unit’s damage is equal to its Size plus half its Target Movement Modifier (rounded down). Thus, a Size 3 unit with TMM 3 would deal 4 damage with a successful charge.”

Delete Special Physical Attack Damage Formulas table

“Damage to Attacker: If the Charge attack is successful, the attacking unit also suffers 1 point of damage if its target is Size 3 or
higher. This damage does not count as an attack by the target unit, which may attack normally during its Combat Phase.”

Change to
“Damage to Attacker: If the Charge attack is successful, the attacking unit also suffers half its Target Movement Modifier (rounded down) in damage, plus 1 point of damage if its target is Size 3 or higher.  This does not count as an attack by the target unit.”

The pre-release errata is up at the first post, with the intention of a formal release on 6 June.  This also synced up with the upcoming 5th printing, which is rare.

Note that only errata reported up through 7 May is included: anything after that missed the reprint cutoff point and will have to be pushed out to a hypothetical 6th printing.

Let me know if you spot any errors.  Thanks!

p39, Transport example

replace last paragraph (omnimechs and battle armor) with
"The Night Gyr moves to a position within 4" of the battle armor, alongside the Grendel and Hellion that were already in position. Brian then wants to mount the battle armor on to the OmniMechs.  Brian cannot have the battle armor mount the Night Gyr, as it has already moved this turn. So the two battle armor each move in to base to base contact (up to 4" of MV) with the Grendel and Hellion and then pay 2" of MV to mount the OmniMech. Brian may then move the Grendel and Hellion, along with the mounted battle armor, if he chooses."

p39, Ground Unit Transport
Add after last sentence in this section
"A transport may not mount/embark and dismount/disembark units in the same turn. Once a transport has mounted/embarked units, it may not dismount/disembark any units that turn, and once a transport has dismounted/disembarked units, it may not mount/embark units. A unit may not mount/embark and dismount/disembark in the same turn either."

I am confused by this one.  Doesn't it directly contradict page 39, right column, under the heading TRANSPORTING INFANTRY, last sentence of the fifth paragraph, which states,

"It is, however, permissible to mount an infantry unit, move its transport, dismount the infantry, and make attacks with the infantry unit all in the same turn."

"By clicking on the names of a listed unit, the user can then view more distinct stats for it, including—at the very bottom of the page—links to images of these units courtesy of CamoSpecs Online (www.camospecs.com), another partner site, online ordering options to obtain the appropriate miniature via Iron Wind Metals (www.ironwindmetals.com), and, if available, an Alpha Strike card for the model and variant selected.

p50, Engine Hits
