PDF, Corrected Second Printing, Wasp -1A, p. 238

"every major government in the Inner Sphere and Periphery manufactures the Wasp"

Per MUL Factory research this is incorrect, as the Draconis Combine does not manufacture the WSP-1A or -1K.

PDF, 2nd Printing

Page 117, Assassin: has 80 points of armor allocated, but should have only 72 points.  Recommend changing the leg armour to 6 to match RS3039 Unabridged.
Page 225, Raven: BV is "N/A", it should be 639 like RS 3039 Unabridged.
Page 284, Valkyrie: jump jet locations are not listed under Weapons and Ammo (Should be 1 CT, 2 RL, 2 LL), to match RS3039 Unabridged.

"for the Terren Hegemony"

Terra is spelled with an "a" in every other instance in publication.

PDF, 1st and 2nd Printing

P.67, Vedette is listed with a machine gun in the turret. Record sheets and artwork show it in the front. Record sheet also shows full ton of MG ammo. This fixes the missing half-ton that plagues the Vedette back to TRO 3026R

Suggest that MG Location be changed to Front and MG ammo increased to 1 ton to match the Record Sheet

Boomerang Spotter Plane, p. 173

Fuel: 3,276 kg of fuel for a Tech D Prop plane supplies 291 points and not 273, per TM p. 126. However, this actually adds up to 3,274 kg. Thus:

Fuel: change 273 to 291 points
Fuel: change 3,276 kg to 3,274 kg
Cargo: change 13 kg to 15 kg

PDF, second printing, pp. 200-201

Change the header on each page from "Corsair" to "CSR-V12 Corsair" (and the PDF bookmark to match).

Also, the BV was reduced in the second printing, from 1,190 to 1,009, but the MUL and the current (re)release of RS3039 have the BV at 1,190.  This will need to be verified.

Print, 2008 edition

page 236, S-3 Sai notable pilots

Tai-i Reggie Hotspurn

Tai-i is not a naval rank.  The equivalent is Chu-i, which is the suggested change.

page 210, SL-17 Shilone fluff

"The SL-17 is the primary medium fighter of the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery."

DCMS operates no aerospace fighters; it only has DCA auxiliary forces so it should read

"The SL-17 is the primary medium fighter of the Draconis Combine Admiralty."
 

page 214, SL-15 Slayer fluff

"The DCMS hopes to standardize all SL-15s and SL15Rs to the SL-15K beginning in 3069."

The DCMS may hope to do so, but it'd be the DCA's or the Bureau of Military's business to do so.  Suggested change DCMS to DCA or Bureau of the Military

TRO: 3039 PDF, Corrected Second Printing.
Pg. 142: DRG-1N Dragon (fluff page), under "Notable MechWarriors", Buzz-Saw Heltschlag, last sentence:
"He likes nothing better than to pound an opponent into the ground with his ’Mech’s massive left fist.."

Error: Though all official art and miniatures depict a Hand/Battle Fist on the Dragon, no record sheet for a Dragon (-1C, -1N, -1G) available during the "Point-of-view" time of TRO 3039 has ever had a Hand Actuator. [Source: RS 3039, Upgrades, Unabridged. The same holds true throughout the FASA-era RS books]. The first Dragon with a hand actuator on the record sheets, the -5N, entered production in 3047 [source: MUL]. At this time, the Caballeros appear to have been under contract to the FWL, not hiring on with the Combine until the Clan Invasion [Sources: Historical, W/O 3039, "Close Quarters".

Correction: Revise fluff, or add a hand actuator to the -1 series Dragon's record sheets.

Thank you for the report.

Please remember that the fluff section is written from an in universe point of view and can tend to generalize. Had the in universe author written "He likes nothing better than to pound an opponent into the ground with the stump of his 'Mech's left arm.", it just wouldn't have the same feel.

It is a fist. It just is a fist that can't open. So I guess this Dragon will be catching any birds or shaking any hands.

PDF, corrected second printing

Page 2, Table of Contents, first column, "Hunger Light Support Tank     42"

Suggest changing to:

"Hunter Light Support Tank     42"
Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

DTF corrected second printing

pg 45 Pegasus

Has only 99 armor points assigned, needs 5 more to make the 104 points it should have. Recomend changing front armor to 26 to match TRO:3026.

Print edition, Corrected Second Printing

P. 198 and p. 236.

Both Overview sections of SL-21 Sholagar and S-3 Sai mention a fatal incident involving a Kuritan Sholagar pilot, or at least it seems to be the same person based on contents of those overviews. In one of them the pilot's name is spelled Akiro, and on the other Akira. I guess "Akira" is correct, since such Japanese name obviously exists, but it is not like I know a XXXI century Japanese language (or any Japanese language really), so I can't rule out "Akiro" with 100% certainty.

I recommend changing spelling on p. 198 to Akira, unless someone can point out that I'm wrong and tell us why.

Looks like my last post here fell victim to recent technical problems, so here it is again.

Print edition, Corrected Second Printing

P. 73. Engine mass of SRM Carrier is listed as 24 [tons], should be 14 (just like LRM Carrier on the same page).

It is just a typo in the "Engine" line - with 14 ton engine total mass of SRM Carrier adds up to 60 tons, as it should.
