That's indeed a problem. The only way to reconcile both sources might be to take "4 squadrons of strike cruisers" as "4 strike cruiser squadrons", with each squadron consisting of one cruiser and escorting warships, like a RL Carrier Strike Group is a group centered on one aircraft carrier, not a group of several carriers. Luckily, the H:RW Tentativa OoB lists the 4 frontline taskforces with one Aegis each as the largest warship. Maybe the in-universe Comstar author of Periphery 1st ed. misunderstood the FS Navy terms.

Classical FASA two-step dancing...

Anyway, since newer sources top older ones, it seems like the mythical strike cruiser has been written out of existence before we could catch a glimpse. :)

reading it as "4 strike cruiser squadrons" is probably the best solution given the current info.  That said I would not say the in character author got it wrong.  I am not sure how the entry in H:RW got past fact check-
1) The Aegis and Barons were not turned over to the Great Houses until 2582
2) The Leopard CV did not enter service until 2581
3) The AFFS had too many Davion 1s- as part of Directive 22 (issued in 2575) the FS leased all but 3 Davion 1s to the SLDF - there were 7 at Tentativa
4) The Vincent Mk39 was the final SL version of the Vincent after centuries of modifications (not to say the FS could not have had Vincents but they should have been maybe Mk 20 ). 

All of this is per TR 3057R - for reference the Battle of Tentativa took place in 2577.

Yeah, something will have to give. We can probably juggle some dates, like Direction 22 was issued in 2775, but then most of the surviving Davion Is were only transferred after Tentativa. I overlooked that the Aegis wasn't distributed to the member states before 2582, that leaves the FS Navy without any known cruisers except for six Defender BCs at the time of Tentativa, maybe a couple of second hand Cruiser cruisers :)

The Argo class submersible carrier. Its described in the mercenary handbook. Ordered by Kraken Unleashed, a merc unit. It could house like a wing of aerospace fighters, at least a lance, and is bristling with guns, buuut theres no record sheet. I saw a picture of it somewhere but never a source for it.

The Capellan Novel that came out,  Blood Will Tell, new DropShip variant of the Danais which is intended to be a Industrial 'Mech Carrier, but it's basically was used transport BattleMech. As this writing, there never been variant of the ship as mech carrier. Despite Union being the regular military one.

Wouldn't that be the Phobos from GDL? Not the second Phobos aka the Union, but the Trojan variant of the Danais..

You are likely right. However it was stated out either. The freighter was listed being as cargo only. No mech bays were ever listed for the Danai and not one meant to transport any kind mechs ready to march, just packed a way as cargo. Like Container ship or on flatbed trailer.. Additionally, there yet another variant developed as a dedicated passenger ship.

Was just listening to the Audiobook for Heir to the Dragon (so I am not sure of the page), and during the fight with the Skye rangers they mention a Kuritian tracked APC "HK-17", which has a troop compartment.  I would guess it just falls under the standard class of tracked APC, but figured I'd toss it up here ;)

"Amid the eye-searing pulses of the Kuritan fire, an HK17 armored personnel carrier appeared, the bedraggled rat of the Legion emblazoned on its dented and ragged side armor."

Jihad Objectives: The Clans, pp. 11, 14

Falcon’s Roost Orbital Assembly Plant opened in 3072, so there might be other additional Jihad and later sources that mention it.

The Jeep does have a RS, but it's out of date... also there's no RS for the Nolan MagLev Train....

UPDATE: PPC Locust... 1st ed. 3025 TRO, fourth para, middle column...

We now have LPPCs... but this is a Davion variant using a standard PPC.

Shrapnel 6. Star Python mech in the Scorpion empire story

Wasn't the Star Python originally a misnamed (or possibly scrapped early name) Nexus?

(in the meta sense I mean. Not in universe)

I wonder if in universe the mech is based on the Nexus/Jackrabbit, for the sake of that sweet sweet continuity nod.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Right. The ComStar SB (FASA 1655) showes three new 'mechs: the Nexus (ex Jackrabbit), the Raijin and the Grand Crusader, in TRO style.
A color plate shows the three 'mechs as well, but calls the Nexus Star Python and the Raijin Galahad (the name of the Grand Crusader is unchanged).

Rec Guide 19 has Ghost Bear mech that's apparently either a heavy or assault called the Mastodon.

I suppose it could be.  The only hint we're given is that it's allegedly quite durable, as the very-tough-for-its-size Rime Otter is listed as being tough enough to team up with one.

But at least it confirms that Ghost Bears are metalheads.

Too bad it's not Goliath Scorpion mech, it would have the ram plate mounted on it.  Then it could be really a Mastodon.

Maybe there's more to come on the rumoured omni Scorpion and Goliath.
