Starting with tech level questions, as these are likely not errata in 3145:
P. 33, Anzu entry (tech is currently "Inner Sphere", but has PPC capacitors and CASE II)
P. 35, Carronade entry (tech is currently "Inner Sphere", but has CASE II)
P. 37, Neanderthal entry, (tech is currently "Inner Sphere", but has PPC capacitors and M-Pods)

Grammar problems:
P. 26, Violator entry:
"When used properly the Violator..."
Deployment section, "When elements of the First Orloff Grenadiers joined the planetary militia to take back the capital they..."
(in both cases subordinate/dependent clause should be separated with a comma)
P. 28, Sarath entry:
Deployment section, "However the Fourth Hussars were eventually ejected from Aitutaki and the defeat was seen as a bad omen for the new Sarath." (Conjunctive adverbs should have a comma, conjunctions joining separate independent clauses should have a comma)
P. 30, Quasimodo entry:
Capabilities section, "Adding jump jets that aren’t unheard of in a Hunchback improves the mobility of the Quasimodo,..." (reads awkwardly)
P. 40, Juliano entry:
"Following the fall of Marik-Stewart the Juliano" (subordinate/dependent clauses should be separated with a comma)
P. 42, Picaroon entry:
Deployment section, "The first reported clash between two Picaroons occurred in 3115 when a raid..." (subordinate/dependent clause should be separated with a comma)
"WHO PUT 6 ARMOR ON THE RIFLEMAN'S HEAD?!?" - Peter S., while marking damage from a PPC, 1994.
"Ich bin Jadefalke!!!! Ich bin MechKrieger!!!!" - German students on their field trip to Leipzig, 1998.

You are correct, those are not errata.

Leonidas BA Record sheets

Should there be sheets with 5 troopers for the Marians?

ZU-G60 Anzu (p.33) has the Battle Value 1,503.
However, the record sheet for it (p.85) shows the Battle Value 1,486.


ZU-G70 Anzu
In the text (p.32) it is mentioned as the ZU-G70 twice.
However, the record sheet for it (p.86) designates it as the ZU-J70.

STK-9A Stalker II (p.38)

Deployment lists the design first being used in 3138 against the Duchy of Oriente.  The Oriente has since been renamed since the aftermath of the Jihad as the Oriente Protectorate.

Recommended change: Change Duchy of Oriente to Oriente Protectorate.

Hello,
Anzu Entry, P. 32, Primary Factory=Calloway VI
vs.
references to AMSC, Marik-Stewart tactics, and this quote from the "Notable Units, Bondsman Erik Wolf" profile:
"Born Erik Feraru on New Olympia, Erik was an eight-year veteran of the Marik Militia when he was captured by the Wolves during the invasion of Keystone.  Abandoned by his fleeing lancemates, Erik found himself alone in his Anzu... Weaving through the interior of his own ’Mech’s production lines..."
Were there two factories, one on Keystone and the other on Calloway VI?  Or is Calloway VI a misprint?
Thanks!
Steve

Questions belong in Ask the Writers, not the errata threads.  Please read the rules.  Thanks!

Yes. It was originally a Marik-Stewart Commonwealth design, but with the fall of that nation, it's production was relocated to Calloway in the new FWL.

p. 22

Jenn Talcred formed her mercenary company in 3138, which then defended Republic worlds against Clan Wolf in 3137.
Issue: Timeline
Correction: Adjust formation date to 3136
