I wanted to post these here first since I wasn't sure if they were errata or excluded on purpose. The following are Mechs llisted as available in the MUL faction lists (and fairly common-ish), but not in the Tukayyid Supplement lists. Just let me know if any of these should be added to the errata thread.

Battle of Tukayyid Supplemental, PDF

p. 10, Heavy Mechs:
Add EXT-4D Exterminator

p. 11, Assault Mechs:
Add THG-11E Thug
Add HGN-732 Highlander
(only royals are included)

p.12, Medium Mechs:
Add VL-2T Vulcan

p.13, Heavy Mechs:
Add QKD-4H Quickdraw
Add GHR-5H Grasshopper
Add GHR-5J Grasshopper (a field refit in TROs)
Add GLT-3N Guillotine

p.13, Assault Mechs:
Add LGB-7Q Longbow

Also, the following are included in the main Tukayyid book's Clan 2nd-line Heavy Mechs (p. 30), but not in the Supplement's Clan 2nd-line Heavy Mechs (p.10):
Crossbow Prime
Mad Dog C
Summoner Prime

I have notice that the Kokou and Kokou XL currently does not have a Alpha Strike PV listing.

Am I jumping the gun or is this currently, unavailable but forth coming, or just an oopsie?

Thank you MUL team!

Ran into an issue regarding the "Bandit (C)" specifically the G configuration and haven't been able to find an answer.

https://bg.battletech.com/forums/errata/record-sheets-3058-unabridged/msg132462/#msg132462
Unit source: RS3058_Upgrade_Unabridged_InnerSphere p.108

I did uncover the decade-old "Pending errata" (link) but have been unable to locate the actual resolution.

Originally attempted to play the version online (via MegaMek) but the unit was unavailable for deployment due to being "invalid construction"  ...I then decided to dive into the attached MekLab as well as my TechManual to verify/validate, and was able to confirm that the unit has 2 Items too many (17 of 15) disallowing it from Tabletop play as well.

After tinkering around in the lab, I do have a working solution ...but since my local guys prefer having "official" stuff and not customs, is there an official "fix" for this particular unit?

Pg. 12 Battle of Tukayyid Supplemental

Medium Mechs.
Is the duplicate Centurion CN9-A listed between the Wyvern WVE-9N and Crab CBR-27, supposed to be a Crab CBR-20?

A TAG question, not sure if errata, a rule question, inability to find info or what, so asking here.

TAG use happens at the end of movement phase. But since it is before and separate from weapon attacks, this implies torso twists happen afterwards, right? (Meaning one should pay attention to facing if intending to use TAG.)
Is this actually said anywhere explicitly? Couldn't find anything in BMM or Total Warfare.

TAG happens at the close of the Movement Phase.  Torso twisting happens in the Weapon Attack Phase that follows, and twisted torsos return to their standard position during the End Phase.

So yes, proper facing is essential as you'll never be able to take into account torso twisting to aim TAG.

Makes sense, makes sense. Might a good addition for the BMM FAQ section if it gets updated some day, me thinks.

Think i'll need to start asking questions just about everything, just to make sure i read stuff right. And even if it doesn't benefit me, there's probably someone who does benefit :P

Okay, new weirdness, concerns multiple products. Some instances are reported as errata in relevant threads but the issue overall remains.

The Gargoyle's ferro-fibrous placement.

TRO3050U and Clan Invasion show one FF slot per arm, empty legs.
RS3050Uu all Gargoyle configurations shows one FF per leg, empty arms. It also replaces the Gargoyle C's extra A-pod with an ER Small Laser and MUL BV for it is based on the RS3050Uu version.

Battle of Tukayyid Supplemental follows RS3050Uu placement, except in the case of Gargoyle-C which follows the TRO version.
RecGuide 11 Gargoyle Record Sheets follow TRO placement.
RS3145NTNU Gargoyle T follows TRO placement.

I don't have RS Clan Invasion so i'm not sure how it shows the Gargoyle.
Based on some digging, TRO3050U/Clan Invasion ferro-fibrous placement is the original arrangement (like it was in the original TRO3050), and RS3050Uu changed that for some reason.

EDIT err, yes, the question is: Which one is right? So that stuff can be reported in specific threads accurately.

snip

That is strange. I actually issued errata on Tukayyid's Gargoyle C based off of 3050u's sheets, but you're right--the sheets don't line up with the TRO itself. Some of the configs, like the E, had their crits extensively changed between the TRO and the sheets.

It looks like errata was posted in the RS:3050u thread regarding the Gargoyle. The Tukayyid sheets were build off of the 3050u ones, and it looks like the errata was missed when we made them. I'll confirm the errata is accurate, but it looks like the TRO entry layout/RecGuide12 is correct.

Which one? The one about ER Small laser instead of A-pod? (Which is a fortunate improvement.)

Didn't even realize the E configuration was affected, didn't check individual configurations in TROs, just the base chassis.

Yeah, exactly that. I spotted it after the fact and thought it was an error...turns out it's the only sheet that was correct. Hah!
So yeah, the RecGuide layout is the correct one. I've altered Gargoyle errata for Tuk:Sup accordingly. Great catch!

Means RS3050Uu-C (and probably RSCI) need errata reports about the E configuration then, to make it match the TRO description.
EDIT Wait, that's done. Though the same errata suggests the triple A-pods for the C.
EDIT2 Argh, wait, which one is the right one? Triple A-pods or ERSL?

And i need to rebuild the entire 'Mech in SSW  xp

Thanks, that's what i figured but managed to confuse myself.

That means http://masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/2004/man-o-war-gargoyle-c needs to BV trimming to 2417.

There appears to be an error in the recently published free "Force Pack Record Sheets" pdf. I post it here, since I don't see an errata thread dedicated to this product.

The problem is that in the rear armor diagrams of all 'Mechs in thew pdf the central section is labeled as "Center Torso" instead of "Center Torso Rear".

Also, are the years (2019) in the copyright notices at the bottoms of the sheets correct?
