The error: The banner for the light 'Mech section depicts the Coyotl, which is a medium 'Mech.

Record sheet for Mongoose C

Problem: The equipment list from the Mongoose C entry, page 11, includes a 200-rated engine, 12 double heat sinks (therefore 4 dhs outside the engine), and 2 ER Medium Lasers.
The record sheet has only displays criticals for 2 of the 4 dhs outside the engine, and only displays 1 ER Medium Laser.

Additionally, the Mongoose C record sheet does not match the previously published Mongoose C record sheet from TP: Tokasha (which correctly displays all the critical items published in TP: Tokasha).

Solution 1A: rearrange the criticals to match the record sheet from TP: Tokasha.
B: rearrange the criticals (ES, FF to the arms, dhs to the torsos), then replace 2 dhs for a targeting computer to indicate evolution from Mongoose C to Mongoose C 2

Solution 2: Base the Mongoose C on the critical layout of the Mongoose C 2, by replacing the targeting computer with 1 DHS, and placing the second DHS in the LA above the ER Medium Laser, giving the design a sense of symmetry.

CS-1 Fox, pp. 16-17

Problem: The Tech base for the CS-1 Fox is "Mixed Inner Sphere". However, the record sheet for the CS-1 Fox shows Clan-spec XL Fusion Engine and Endo Steel. There are no Double Heat Sinks on the record sheet (because their criticals are in the 300-rated Engine), therefore we cannot see which tech is used. In addition, TechManual indicates the CS-1 Fox was introduced in 2424, 3 years before Clan-spec XL Fusion Engines and Endo Steel began production (after prototype stage) (Universal Technology Advancement Table, Strategic Operations).

Solution 1: Label the XL Fusion Engine and Endo Steel as "Clan" on the entry list.
Solution 2: Change the technology of the CS-1 Fox.
Solution 3 (Best): Change the XL Fusion Engine and Endo Steel to Star-League tech, reassign criticals for Endo Steel.

Record Sheet, Omni-Corvis Prime:

Problem: The Right Arm of the Omni-Corvis Prime has both an Ultra Autocannon/10 and actuators for the lower arm and hand. This is illegal construction for an OmniMech.

Location: pg. 91, Sun Bear Prime Record Sheet

The error: The fixed heat sink in the left leg (per the weight and space allocation table on page 25 is not in the left leg.

The fix: move one of the heat sinks from one of the torso locations to the left leg.

The error: The fixed heat sink in the left leg (per the weight and space allocation table on page 25 is not in the left leg.

The fix: move one of the heat sinks from one of the torso locations to the left leg.

Alternatively, remove the 12th fixed DHS from the profile, add DHS back in configurations

* LOCATION: Page 5 (Water Elemental Mining Suit quirks), page 7 (Rhino quirks)

* THE ERROR: Water Elemental has the bad reputation quirk; this is seemingly not reflected in the lore given its multiple battlefield victories, unusual for a piece of civilian equipment. The Rhino does not have the bad reputation quirk even though it is a poorly-regarded deathtrap.

* THE FIX: Remove bad reputation from the Water Elemental. Add bad reputation to the Rhino.

(I am reporting this not to argue over lore, but because I feel like there may have legitimately been a mistake here and that the quirks were swapped by accident. If this really is the intended set of quirks then please ignore me.)

Record Sheet, Coyotl Prime, A, B, C, D

Observation: The 'Mech image looks to be slightly modified/alternate artwork from that published in ED: Golden Century and elsewhere: The Coyotl artwork here has an arm with articulated 'Mech RA with a hand. None of the configurations published actually have hands (although it is nice to have a second image).

p. 15, Coyotl, Configuration D

Problem: BV is reported as 1,180. This does not match my calculations, nor the number reported on MUL
Solution: Edit BV to say 1,980.

Record Sheet, Coyotl C

Problem: Era icon on the sheet indicates introduction during the Wars of Reaving/Jihad. MUL reports an intro date of 3145.
Solution 1: Replace the icon with that of the Dark Ages.
Solution 2: Adjust the MUL intro date to c. 3075

Record Sheet, Coyotl D

Problem: Record sheet is missing the improved heavy large laser in the 'Mech's RA
Solution: place a iHLL in the RA.

ERROR

The aerospace section of the book uses BattleMech weight classes instead of aerospace weight classes. This results in multiple errors.


FIXES

- The Ogotai (pg. 48) should be categorized as light aerospace rather than medium aerospace
- The Goth (pg. 50) should be categorized as medium aerospace rather than heavy aerospace
- The Qasar (pg. 52) and Chippewa IIC (pg. 54) are both categorized as "assault aerospace", a weight class which has never existed for aerospace fighters; accordingly, these should both be corrected to heavy aerospace
