Page 16, Fox entry, deployment section, third paragraph.
Page 34, Masauwu entry, deployment section, second to last paragraph.

ERROR: Inconsistency between the names Hellhound and Conjurer.
FIX: One or the other should be chosen; as the book appears to be written from a Republic perspective, Hellhound seems more fitting.

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 1 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, correct Mongoose C record sheet from TP: Tokasha.

Solution: rearrange the criticals to match the record sheet from TP: Tokasha.

Optional: 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

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: 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.)
