This report is based on an outdated FanPro 2005 print edition of Technical Readout 3055 Upgrade, so it may be already fixed in the Catalyst Game Labs edition of the book. I have no way of checking if it is the case.

P. 118 (description of Viper 3 'Mech)

Problem: The last sentence of the first paragraph of the Capabilities section says "All the weapons are tied to a targeting computer, placed in the heavily armored torso[...]", but in the stat block on p. 119 the Targeting Computer is listed in the right arm. Since in MegaMekLab all Viper/Black Python variants also list Targeting Computers in the right arm, I suspect the stats are correct, and the fluff is wrong.
Suggestion: Either delete "[...]placed in the heavily armored torso[...]" from the sentence in question, or replace it with something like "[...]placed in the right arm[...]".

Edit: Capital "P" in FanPro.

Thanks for checking ColBosch.

Here are some more errors (again based on FanPro edition).

P. 146

Problem: The second sentence under Robert "Zombie" Daiziel (in the VKH-1 Volkh description) does not seem to be grammatically correct. It has either one "with" to many or one noun to few.
Suggestion: Change "He favors with staying power - preferably designs with standard engine, lots of armor and exclusively armed with energy weapons." to "He favors BattleMechs with staying power - preferably designs with standard engine, lots of armor and exclusively armed with energy weapons." or "He favors staying power - preferably designs with standard engine, lots of armor and exclusively armed with energy weapons."

P. 193

Problem: Configuration D of the Sabutai lists 2 ER Medium Lasers in location RW twice. This is likely a typo.
Suggestion: Change the location of the second pair of ER Medium Lasers from RW to LW.

P. 197

Problem: Configuration B of the Scytha lists Targeting Computer in the Nose. According to TM Targeting Computers in the Fighters are always mounted in the body (fuselage), and don't take slots in the firing arcs.
Solution: Change location of the targeting computer from "Nose" to "-".
Problem 2: Tonnage of the ER Small Laser in the Configuration D is listed as "05".
Solution 2: The tonnage should be changed from "05" to ".5".

P. 198

Problem: A minor stylistic complaint really. The second sentence of the second paragraphs in the Capabilities section of the Kirghiz reads "The A variant mounts a mix of hyper-long range autocannons, but its main forward-firing weapons are shorter-range PPCs and pulse lasers.". The issue with this is that the only autocannons this variant mounts are two identical LB 2-Xs, which in my book hardly count as a "mix of hyper-long range autocannons".
Suggestion: Cange the quoted sentence to something like "The A variant mounts a pair of hyper-long range autocannons, but its main forward-firing weapons are shorter-range PPCs and pulse lasers." or "The A variant mounts a mix of weapons. It has two hyper-long range autocannons, but its main forward-firing weapons are shorter-range PPCs and pulse lasers.".

p. 92, Naga

Problem: Under Manufacturer, "Manufacturing Plant WA3, Arcadia". Clan Wolf does not possess any territory on Arcadia.

Suggestion: Change "Arcadia" to "Dagda"
Reason: 1. The Naga's factory survived the Wars of Reaving and has been repurposed to construct Septicemia. (WoR:S)
2. Dagda is the only former-Wolf possession in the Pentagon still habitable after WoR.
3. After 3085, Dagda belongs to a Clan that uses the Septicemia (WoR:S).

P. 188, "Visigoth", Notable Pilots - Michael Tchernovkov

Problem: 2nd Sentence, Quote- "...today he serves under warriors half his age in a solahma formation on Tamarind." Here Tamarind most likely refers to Clan Coyote's capital world, Tamaron.

Solution: Change the remainder of the sentence to read, "......today he serves under warriors half his age in a solahma formation on Tamaron."

Corrected Second Printing
Pg 197 - Scytha A

TRO shows 42.5 tons of Pod space available the A variant equipment totals 44.5 tons resulting in the unit being 2 tons overweight.

Going back to the TRO 3055 (Revised) #8619 - It only has 1 ton of SRM ammo.

Dev-level errata:

p. 92, Naga, "Deployment"

Change
"The Naga first saw limited deployment in the mid-2900s."
to
"The Naga first saw limited deployment in the mid-2800s."

(Change reflects newer history in RecGuide #26.)



p. 98, Raijin, "Overview"

Change
"During Operation Odysseus, Blakist forces suffered large losses among medium ’Mechs, particularly the Raijin."
to
"During Operation Odysseus, ComStar forces suffered large losses among medium ’Mechs, particularly the Raijin."

(In 3058, the Raijin was an exclusive ComStar design, so would have been defending, not attacking. Since the WoB captured Terra, they would still have been able to do the "interviewing" (should probably be changed to "interrogating") of surviving pilots, so the following sentence works as-is.)
On CGL writing: Caught between a writer's block and a Herb place. (cray)

3055 rocks! Did so when I was a n00b, does so now.
