TRO FS 3145
P 47
Black Knight engine listed as 225, change to 300

Should there be a note on mechs with medium and large shields that movement changes to the default if the arm carrying the shield is lost? I think that is what led to the engine error - the much has a base move of 4/6 modified to 3/5 MP by the medium shield.

Cheers,
LCC

Hello,
If there have been no tech base changes vs. TRO: Prototypes + TO, there are a couple of problems with tech base:
P. 35, Hollander III Entry: Techbase?   CASE II and Superchargers = Adv
P. 39, Antlion Entry: Techbase?  Reinforced Structure, All criticals listed (except Light Machine Gun) = Adv
P. 41, Centurion Entry: Techbase?  Prime, A-C configurations have CASE II = Adv
P. 43, Vulpes Entry: Techbase? xxl engine = exp, Mixed tech = adv

I found 1 grammar problem:
P. 48, Atlas III Entry, Deployment: "As they closed he added..." ("As they closed..." is a clause begun with a conjunction, and should end with a comma).

Also, I have yet to see an errant page for Technical Readout: 3145 Draconis Combine.

Cheers!

Steve

There have been tech changes. No errata.

Zibler Fast Strike Tank, page 20
in the technical information section:
Armament: 18 tons of pod space.

Error: Does not list how many tons are allocated for the turret.

Solution: Given that it has 2 tons of allocated for the turret, allowing for a maximum of 20 tons of equipment in the
               turret, change entry to

Armament: 18 tons of pod space (maximum of 18 tons in the turret)

               to keep with the standard entry procedure for Omni-units with turrets.

Not an error. If all pod space can be mounted in the turret, no restrictions apply and hence need not be stated. This was a deliberate choice.

First PDF printing, page 8, center column, last paragraph, third sentence

Quote
...under fire by a while hiding in a...

Makes no sense.

Suggested fix: remove "by a" so it reads as follows:

Quote
...under fire while hiding in a...

Edit: This has been fixed in TRO:3150

First printing PDF, Page 44, Black Knight entry

Under "Armaments" the Kingston ER PPC is not noted as Clantech, while the "Weapons And Ammo" entry on page 45 and the Record Sheet on Page 96 both list the ER PPC as Clan.

Solution: Add (Clantech) to the Kingston ER PPC's line in the Armaments column.

PDF, p. 84
Antlion LK-3D Weapons and Inventory lists weapon as "Mortar 4 (Clan)", pages 38 and 39 list it as " 'Mech Mortar".

Also damage type for weapon listed as "S". Per p. 408 of TacOps should be "M,C,S".

I think there is a problem with the Centurion CN-11OD

The engine would be a 200 XL, so 8 of the HS would be internal to the engine leaving 2 double HS to place.

but the Record sheet doesn't show the 2 that would be placed.

As you quoted, the muffling system makes it difficult to maintain.

Page 26, Paladin Defense System

Problem: Under Armaments, it lists 2 Mydron Miniguns.  These are not listed on page 27 under Weapons and Ammo, nor do they appear on the record sheet on page 74.

Solution: Remove "2 Mydron Miniguns" from the Armaments section on page 26.
