    * VERSION:
Corrected Seventh Printing; Sixth Printing by Catalyst Game Labs (PDF)
    * LOCATION:
Index, page 301, "Industrial Mech" section
    * THE ERROR:
3rd sub-entry, "modifier, 110" refers to the wrong page. There is so mention of Industrial Mechs.
    * THE CORRECTION:
The correct page is 108; it mentions Industrial Mechs without an advanced fire control system suffer a +1 to all weapon attacks.

    * VERSION:
Corrected Seventh Printing; Sixth Printing by Catalyst Game Labs (PDF)
    * LOCATION:
page 301, "I" section of the index.
    * THE ERROR:
There is no index reference for ICE Engine critical hits. I believe this should be there, as on the same page, in the "F" section this entry exists:
Fission Engine, critical hit, 126
    * THE CORRECTION:
Add a new entry in the "I" section ICE Engine, critical hit, 126


    * VERSION:
Corrected Seventh Printing; Sixth Printing by Catalyst Game Labs (PDF)
    * LOCATION:
page 301, "I" section of the index, "IndustrialMech" sub-section.
    * THE ERROR:
There is no reference to the rules for industrial mechs risking destruction if submerged - this is important and easy to miss rule.
    * THE CORRECTION:
Add a new entry, water, 52 (or whatever wording seems appropriate - "submerged" would work too) to the "IndustrialMech" sub-section.

*EDIT - found another issue*

    * VERSION:
Corrected Seventh Printing; Sixth Printing by Catalyst Game Labs (PDF)
    * LOCATION:
page 144, "Physical Attacks" section, IndustrialMechs sub-section.
    * THE ERROR:
Quote
The controlling player makes only one roll per turn, regardless of the number of successful physical attacks the IndustrialMech suffers
This does not also reference that there is only 1 roll per turn regardless if the source of the roll is from falling or being hit by a physical attack unlike the rules on page 69 ("Falling Damage to a 'Mech" section, "IndustrialMechs" subsection):
Quote
The controlling player makes only one roll per turn, regardless of the number of falls (or successful physical attacks) the IndustrialMech suffers.
    * THE CORRECTION:
The Physical attack rules should be updated to mention it is only 1 roll per turn regardless of source.

Version: 7th Printing (still present in 9th)

Location: Page 80

Error: The section on units restricted from using atmospheric aerospace movement prohibits airships from entering the low- or high-altitude maps. This prevents the unit from lifting off.

Correction: Remove any mention of airships from the sentence paragraph of Restricted Units, and add a new sentence after it which reads:
Quote
Airships are only prohibited from entering the high-altitude map.

On page 11 of the most recent errata document (v9.0), it mentions that in the "Failed Braking Maneuver table" (on page 87 of Total Warfare), in the third effect, "landing gear is destroyed" should be replaced with "landing gear is damaged". This includes an annotation indicating that this change occurred in the 5th printing of Total Warfare.

However, in my TW 9th printing PDF, this change has not actually been implemented on page 87; it still reads "landing gear is destroyed".

An equivalent change is mentioned on page 54 of the errata document (table on page 311 of TW), but this change appears to have been implemented, so no further action is needed there.


Separately, effects of destroyed landing gear are mentioned on TW pages 86 and 88 (preventing launch or lift-off, and preventing taxiing of aerodyne aerospace units while landed), but after the errata above is properly implemented, there appears to be no remaining ways that landing gear can actually be destroyed. You may wish to adjust this somehow.

product link takes you to a video, not the actual total warfare book, purchase page
