Issue: Under Magnetic Pulse, the effects include the target receiving a -1 target number to-hit next turn, making it easier to hit targets while under the effect of MagPulse.

Solution: Change

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."

p39, Transport Example.
"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. Both platoons may make weapons attacks during the upcoming Combat Phase."
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. The next turn, Lara moves the Maxim up to its Move of 16 inches and dismounts all the infantry. The infantry platoon may not move this turn, but may make weapons attacks during the upcoming Combat Phase."

(note this is on top of a previous errata to this same paragraph).

p110, Master Unit List
"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. These Alpha Strike cads may then be copied, customized, and printed."

p50, Engine Hits
"an engine hit will cause the unit to generate 1 heat point any time it fires its weapons without delivering any extra damage from overheating."
change to
"an engine hit will cause the unit to generate 1 heat point in the End Phase if it made any weapon attacks in the turn. This heat is separate from overheating, and does not deliver any extra damage to the weapon attack."

I've just added a new mini-errata release to the first post to catch some stray errata bits, since there likely won't be another printing for a while.  Let me know if you find any issues with it; I'll be adding it to the main website in a week or two.
