Is the Bowman (Prototype) the same machine as the Bowman 4?

Yep. The (Prototype) has been culled.

Wulfen D should have a medium range damage of 1, not 0*

SRM2 with Artemis V has a damage value of 0.42
LB 2-X has a damage value of 0.105

this is more than 0.5 before any rounding, there is no heat-modification (10 doubles and a maximum of 19 heat) and finally should round up to 1.

Hmm. Due to rounding during the heat-modified damage step, it looks like SR damage needs to be boosted up to 1 as well.
Fixed!

what about the note about "before rounding" (from converting heat errata v1.2)?

Minimal Damage: As noted under the general
conversion rules for weapons (see p. 99), any weapon
bracket that delivers more than 0 points of damage, but less
than 0.5 damage (before rounding), receives a Minimal
Damage value (0*) at that range bracket.

This passage is only meant to refer to the rounding that occurs during the final damage step, and not the rounding of the heat-modified damage step.

After discussion, we have chosen not to include this Hunter on the MUL at this point in time. This was decided on for a few reasons:
1) The TCI kits are considered apocryphal at this point in time, and are not fully canon.
2) This version of the Hunter was never reprinted in another product, while the others you listed do have canon--if at times dated--record sheets.
3) The Hunter's specs, as listed in the TCI kit, are illegal and cannot be exactly replicated under the current ruleset.
+1 for consistency, and +1 more for explaining your reasoning!  :thumbsup:

Howdy guys.  Just stumbled on an oddity.  AS card for the Griffin IIC (Standard) has the special ability of OVL, but it has an OV value of 0.

Hi,

The Malice MAL-YZ is currently listed at 2949 BV - http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/6727/malice-mal-yz

The Centipede Scout Car (Wheeled Fusion) and Centipede Scout Car (Wheeled ICE) are listed as variants of the Centipede (Hover). TRO3025 (p. 176) has the wheeled Centipede as a variant of the Swift Wind, while TRO:3058 (p. 12) and TRO:3058U (p. 56) mention the hover is Skulker-based.

They are not variants - the swift wind is listed as an example of a variety of scout cars that exist. The darter is also in that entry

So... they shouldn't be listed as variants of the Hover either, right?  ???

They’re alternate motive. See coolant trucks, the condor upgrade, etc for other examples. It’s an organizational tool to keep things listed together so people don’t have to hunt.

They’re mostly irrelevant footnotes at the moment since they lack RS anyways. Should they ever be actually published, we’ll revisit their status

Rog, but given the 3025 Steiner Centipede Scout Car existed long before the hover Centipede, I don't think they should be linked at all.  It's just a name re-use.

Until the TRO entry is written for the non hover centipedes and definitely relates the history over a near-forty year old one-off reference we’ll keep it as is

Hi, the Jabberwocky JAW-66B EngineerMech is listed as 322 BV :
http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/1650/jabberwocky-jaw-66b-engineermech
The record sheet in p. 128 of Record Sheets 3075 AoW also has 322 for the BV.

I've found that Mordel.net and MechFactory  both calculate 350 for the battle value and it appears as if both sources are using the correct equipment (and the record sheet & TRO section also have the same equipment).  I will include Mordel's calculations here if you would like to double check this one:

Hi, why was my post deleted? I just calculated the correct BV for all total Warfare infantry. I thought that would be useful?

Hi, I do owe you an explanation, and planned on doing so.  I'm just behind on my list of things to do.
As a general note for everyone, I'm aware we have BV updates that need to be made.  I've asked the team to concentrate on the process we are developing for keeping all BVs updated, rather than dealing with single requests at a time. You can still post them, but we may not get to individual BV changes as we are working on that process for all of them.

As for why your post was deleted, I do not want posts promoting people's own works in the MUL thread. While your BV calculations were part of it, if you wanted to post just those here, you can do so. But do not link to outside projects, thanks.

Now that the Blackjack C and Archer C2 have record sheets, will they be given factional availability?

After discussion, we have chosen not to include this Hunter on the MUL at this point in time. This was decided on for a few reasons:
1) The TCI kits are considered apocryphal at this point in time, and are not fully canon.
2) This version of the Hunter was never reprinted in another product, while the others you listed do have canon--if at times dated--record sheets.
3) The Hunter's specs, as listed in the TCI kit, are illegal and cannot be exactly replicated under the current ruleset.

Thanks for taking the time. I understand, but it's a shame - there need (IMHO) to be more early-period wheeled combat vehicles available to most/all factions, if only to spice up selection.

Hell's Horses doesn't have access to the Fire Falcon in the Dark Ages in the MUL, but should according to pp. 218 of Field Manual: 3145.

Hi all,

The Bakeneko BKN-1K is listed as Tech Base: Inner Sphere on Master Unit List.

In BattleTech Historical: Wars of the Republic Era, it is recoreded as Mixed Tech. It features clan equipment and weaponry.

Cheers,

Hi,
The Savage Coyote Z is listed on MU:L as BV 3080 - http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/5831/savage-coyote-z
The record sheet is in War of Reaving Supp'l p. 84

Mordel.net and MechFactory are calculating 3026 BV for this one.  From what I can see, their calculations are using the correct equipment.  I will append Mordel's excellent calcs below in case you want to double-check this one:

I see on another post that you folks are doing some internal review on the BV so let me know if these posts aren't helpful.

Thank you, fixed!

We appreciate your diligence in helping to turn the MUL into the best resource possible, so we certainly will never say that your posts aren't helpful. That said, we are currently performing a larger-scale update, so will likely keep individual updates on standby until it fully goes through.

There is something wonky with the Jade Phoenix E damage Values. It shouldn’t have a long range value for one.

I don’t know the conversion fixes for it, but something is up

Carrion Crow D has too much structure. It looks like it didn’t get an XL engine reduction in structure.
