Just pointed a new Joiner to the FB main BT group to this. It really is a masterpiece.

Has the new version (2021 print) of Strat Ops and Campaign Ops been released yet?, I've seen there's errata posts up for both and the OP has the new art, but the shop has the old art and the old PDF's

Thanks, I was doing an update run of the PDF's and errata after maybe 4-6 years away and got very confused, hopefully I won't need to rebuy Strat Ops.
The Errata Download states for Tac Ops that "All entries will be included in the 2020 restructured two-volume reprint of Tactical Operations" does this mean the single copy version other than a cover update is no longer updated with errata and will need rebuying?

I thought StratOps was getting major surgery too?   ???

The question is will it show up like normal errata updates in DriveThruRPG, or do I have to buy it all over again?  I'm not unwilling (that COVER!   :drool:), but of course I'd hope it just magically appears in my downloads...

i don't believe we haven't gotten any word on whether CO or SO purchasers will get free updates so i left that out.

technically speaking, the major surgery for SO was a major amputation. i'll end up getting a free pdf when i order the hardcover but i can understand if someone would be annoyed if they have to pay another $15 for a book that's about half of the one they already have.

CO i could see (and understand) paying for again because it was a substantial rebuild with much of the material getting a rewrite

Errata for the Original Post;

Quote
Total Warfare:
Core Rules Option #2
* In addition to 'Mechs, rules for most vehicle types including vehicles, aerospace, and infantry
* Total Warfare + Tactical Operations gives you the full spread of equipment and advanced rules (does not include quirks or the abstract support system)

change "In addition to 'Mechs, rules for most vehicle types including vehicles, aerospace, and infantry" to "In addition to 'Mechs, rules for most unit types including vehicles, aerospace, and infantry"

might also be useful to have a link to ral partha europehttps://www.ralparthaeurope.co.uk/index.php/battletech for those of us outside the USA

A quick google brings up FantasyWelt https://www.fantasywelt.de/Battletech-Miniatures that sells the online exclusive stuff too
