Page 40, Rhino record sheet, and page 30, Ram Plate rules

ERROR: Internal structure diagram on record sheet does not show that it is reinforced. Per the rules on page 30, this is necessary for the ram plate to be mounted.
FIX: Add "reinforced" next to internal structure on record sheet.

Also, possible errata but unsure: the rules on page 30 state "Ranged weapons may be mounted in torso locations."
This seems like an odd thing to specify; since the Rhino does not mount any ranged weapons in its torsos, is it possible that the word "not" is missing from the passage above?

Page 9, Hanseatic League

ERROR: As per the Wars of Reaving Supplemental page 14 and the Wars of Reaving page 168, the Clan scouting expedition and Pegasus WarShip were from Clan Star Adder, not Clan Cloud Cobra
FIX: Replace "Cloud Cobra" with "Star Adder"

The reference to torso weapons was made specifically so anyone familiar with the old Ram Plate from Battletechnology (which forbade torso weapons) would be aware that the restriction does not exist for this new, canon Ram Plate. Since the Rhino does not have torso weapons, I thought players might believe that restriction still existed. Now both old and new players can know that there is no such restriction.

Apologies for the other errors that have been identified. I'll do better next time.

To all citizens of the Inner Sphere do I send greetings.
Know that I have taken the remnant of the Star League Defense Force which has remained true to its purpose beyond the boundaries of the Inner Sphere, beyond the Periphery. I have done this, not out of spite or disdain, as some will say. No, we have left the Inner Sphere because we love it too much to see it destroyed. In the wake of the Usurper's coup and the bitter fighting, I fear the incalculable, possibly irreparable, harm to our society. We are sworn to ward the Star League.
Thus, we have left beyond the reach of those who would use it, not for defense, but for conquest. Perhaps, the leaders who now grapple with one another will relinquish their dreams of subjugating their neighbors and learn to live in peace with them.
Perhaps, one day, should mankind step back from the brink of the abyss, we, our children, or our children's children will return, to once more serve and protect and guide the Star League in mankind's quest for the stars.
Farewell.

Original PDF, Page 40, Rhino record sheet

ERROR: Per discussions with DarkISI, it was determined the BV for the Ram Plate was calculated incorrectly (using 12 hexes for determining charge damage as opposed to 11), as such the BV for the entire unit is off slightly.
FIX: Change the BV to 2,113 (BV breakdown is also attached for reference)

PDF

Issue: General timeline for Königsberg, various places.
28 Jan, initial attack (p. 11)
2 Feb, Hansa mercs destroyed, attacking RDF2 in Brussels (p. 29)
Undated, RDF5 arrives and "occupied Alpha Galaxy for a month" (p. 12)
9 Mar, RDF5 counterattacks Brussels (p. 29)
13 Mar, RDF2 Commander surrenders world (p. 11)
Correction:  Move 13 March surrender date prior to 9 March, 13 February would likely work leaving 11 days for brutal city fighting while also allowing RDF5 to occupy Alpha for a month.  Next time hack is no earlier than May 9 with Alpha's Wave 4 conquest of Riga (p. 12)

Page 25: Deployment Table
Issue: RDF5 counterattacked Königsberg in Wave 3 and was destroyed by Wave 4. Alpha did not remain on Königsberg in Wave 4 but attacked Riga (p. 12 & 17).
Correction: Appropriate changes

Page 17: Wave 4 Map
Issue: RDF5 was technically on Königsberg during Wave 4, but only corpses (p. 12)
Correction: Remove RDF5 icon from Königsberg
