Errata to the v1.5 errata... on pg.18

The mention of ART, which also counts as damage, was left out. Based on discussions last year, this should have been included. I also find the wording is still somewhat confusing trying to combine OR/AND conditions, so I added a) and b) to help differentiate the "groupings".

Currently reads:
*Apply only if the unit meets any of the following criteria: is infantry, has a Damage Value in all range brackets of 0, does not have TSEMP (TSEMP-O does not count).

Change to:
*Apply only if the unit meets any of the following criteria: a) is infantry; b) has a Damage Value in all range brackets of 0, does not have TSEMP (TSEMP-O does not count), and does not have ART (any kind).

p112, Additional Inner Sphere Battle Armor Weapons
Man-Portable Plasma Rifle, add Heat to the Notes column.

p124, Heat-Generating Weaponry Table
Add row for Man-Portable Plasma Rifle as 2/2/-.

,Heat
Add paragraph
When converting battle armor that have weapons that deliver Heat, the Heat values of the weapons carried must be multiplied by the Infantry Troop Factor Table (see p.102) for their squad size.  A squad of four battle armor carrying flamers would have a Heat Value of 2/-/- for the flamer, multiplied by the Infantry Troop Factor of 3. A 6/-/- is enough to qualify for HT1/-/-.

p140, Unit Types and Features
add
JMPS#    +1/2JMPS#
SUBS#     +1/2SUBS#
Has Thrust     +2

p141, Agile
"Take the unit's Target Movement Modifier (not including the Jumped modifier, if applicable)."
change to
"Take the unit's Target Movement Modifier (not including the Jumped modifier, if applicable) and add half the unit's JMPS# or SUBS#."

"then multiple the unit's TMM - 1"
change to
"then mulitply the unit's modified TMM - 1"

"then mulitply the unit's TMM - 2"
change to
"then multiply the unit's modified TMM - 2"

p142, Aerospace Units, Step 2: Determine Unit's Defensive Value
Add before Armor Factor
"Step 2a: Calculating Defensive Interaction Rating (DIR)
A unit’s Defensive Interaction Rating (DIR) is based on three factors: the unit’s Armor Factor and Structure Factor, and its Defense Factor. These are explained more fully below."
After Structure Factor add
"Defense Factor: Using the Defense Factor Modifiers Table, add together the aerospace unit's Type and Feature Modifiers. If this sum is less than 1, treat it as a sum of 0.
Otherwise, divide the sum by 10. Add 1 to the result in either case to find the unit’s Defense Factor.
For example, an aerospace fighter has a +2 airborne aerospace modifier and it would receive a Defense FActor of 1.2 (+2 for aerosapce unit / 10 = 0.2; 0.2 + 1 = 1.2).
A DropShip has a +2 airborne aerospace modifier and -2 for airborne dropship unit. It would receive a Defense Factor of 1.0.
Calculate the DIR: To find the aerospace unit’s final Defensive Interaction Rating, add together its Armor and Structure Factors, and multiply the result by the unit’s Defense Factor. Round this result up to the nearest half point (0.5), to find the unit’s DIR."

Replace MHQ#’s Force Bonus “Ability Rating x1” with
“Ability Rating x1 (for MHQ1-4) or
4+(Ability Rating /5) (round up, for MHQ 5+)”
