My apologies if this has already been discovered, I am reading from my FASA printing I bought some time ago (but I thought this continuity error needed to be reported):

1st printing, FASA, 1998
p. 172
Guillotine IIC entry, "Capabilities", middle of the last paragraph:
"The Adders used the new 'Mechs in 2892 against a raiding force from Clan Mongoose seeking genetic material on the Adders' homeworld. The Adder warriors fought a grueling five-hour battle against the determined Mongoose warriors..."

Problem: Clan Mongoose was Absorbed by Clan Smoke Jaguar in 2868, according to Era Digest: Golden Century, pp. 7-10 and Field Manual: Crusader Clans, p. 113, and possibly others.
Suggested fix: Change Clan Mongoose to another clan, or change the intro date for the Guillotine IIC (not recommended, fluff indicates Clan Coyote intentionally made it as a second-line BattleMech after OmniMechs were introduced, so continuity works)

Thanks!

2010 Corrected Sixth Printing (First Printing by Catalyst Game Labs)

p. 142

Third sentence under Deployment

"One Pack Hunter was to the destruction of its gyro,[...]"

change to something like:

"One Pack Hunter was lost to the destruction of its gyro,[...]".

Technical Readout: 3060, FASA printing, "Epona: Overview", 2nd sentence, p. 54:

"Other Clans consider the pod technology wasted on conventional vehicles, but the Horses, who regularly use vehicles in frontline roles, have enjoyed the benefits of the flexibility of this design for more than seventy years."

Problem: The MUL lists the Epona as 176 years before TRO:3060's in-universe publication date.

Because of other issues with this entry, nckestrel says the MUL should take precedence:

Yeah, Comstar goofed there.  It also says the Bandit is likely an offshot of the Epona.  Meanwhile the Bandit is stated to be from the Golden Century (which ended more than 70 years before 3060).  So I'm going to leave the Epona as earlier.

Solution: Change the line to read, "Other Clans consider the pod technology wasted on conventional vehicles, but the Horses, who regularly use vehicles in frontline roles, have enjoyed the benefits of the flexibility of this design for more than one hundred seventy years."

p.168, under Variants
--Change "five machine guns" to "four machine guns"  (Record Sheets for the design already correct this)
