Recognition Guide: ilClan vol 01 - Page 8 -Dominator Battle History

Errant Summary: Conflicting Histories - Which Republic unit fought XI Principes Guards or XI Triarii Protectors

Errant:  Essentially wrong 11th was used in the battle. Shattered Fortress notes the invasion of Alula Australis by Clan Wolf in October 3150, was fought trial of possession against Republic regiment  XI Principes Guards.  However, in RecGuide 1 - Dominator's history notes that it was the XI (11th) Triarii Protectors. 

EDIT - Double Checking the Field Manual: 3145, it looks like RecGuide v1 is in the wrong.  Colonel Abasi was named in fighting, he was commander of the XI (11th) Principes Guards.

Correction: Change 11th Triarii Protectors to Principes Guards.

Vol 6, pg 5

Problem The Cricket's equipment block lists the RL jump jet twice, giving the illusion of seven JJs. This is not possible due to the BR armor crit.

Solution: Delete the duplicated line

Vol 6, pg 20

Problem: the Cataphract 5L's small VSP lasers have a listed damage of zero on the record sheet

RG6, pg 26 and 28
Problem: MAD-7C and 7R record sheets have erroneous side torso armor allocation, with right rear having 7 points and right front having 25 points. Judging by pg 7 stat block, right side armor allocation should be 24/8 just like the left torso.

Volume 6, page 20 Cataphract record sheet:

Problem:
Small VSP damage is listed as '0' in stat block.

Correction:
Add correct damage to both Small VSP entries.

Change the year of his raid from 3145 to 3146 (New Avalon fell in 3146, so him having the 'Mech in 3145 doesn't work).

Volume 3:
Page 9, entry for BattleMaster C 3
Under Weapons and Ammo, two of the ER Medium Lasers are listed as rear-mounted.
The Record Sheet for the 'Mech does not reflect this. Either the entry on page 9 or the Record Sheet should be changed.

in addition:
because of the different facings of the lasers BV differs in TRO Section (p. 9) and RecSheet (2,532 vs 2,579)

Volume 10, Crucible 2 record sheet, pg 36.

There are two errors on this page.

1) there is no ammo for the LRM-15s on the record sheet.
2) the design is a whopping eight tons underweight.

Fix: unclear due to scope.

BV on the record sheet is 3104.  Should be 3598.

After adding the capacitor, the design is still one ton under weight.

Fix: Add Inner Sphere CASE II to the left torso as mentioned on page 13.

"A freeborn Rasalhagian Chloe Robertson gave up her surname for the chance to become a MechWarrior. More determined than skilled Chloe somehow managed to pass her Trial of Position and was assigned to the Fourteenth PGC. Placed in a vintage Horned Owl it was hoped the pulse lasers would enable her to hit something."

There should be commas after 'Rasalhagian', 'skilled' and 'Owl'.

Volume 11

Record Sheet, Horned Owl (Peregrine) 6

Problem: The record sheet is 1 ton under mass. The armor on the record sheet is identical to that of the Horned Owl (Peregrine) (Standard). According to "Horned Owl (Peregrine)", "Variants" (p. 6), "Based on an ancient prototype which drops the jump jets for armor and a targeting computer..."

Solution: The Horned Owl (Peregrine) 7 has 1 ton more armor than the Horned Owl (Peregrine) (Standard). Replace the armor of the Horned Owl (Peregrine) 6 with that of the Horned Owl (Peregrine) 7.
