Weren't those industrial 'Mechs intended to represent similar but older models? It is not like a lumberjack 'Mech changes much, a lumberjack or mining 'Mech predating the Mackie wouldn't be really different from one dating after the BattleMechs even got perfected.
I could agree with that statement. But it does create a bit of an anachronism to call something specifically a CON-1 Carbine when it didn't exist for another 100+ years. Saying the 'Mech rolled out in 2491 instead of 2691 would fix the problem and not really interfere with the text in the Vehicle Annex. As opposed to creating a whole new set of Industrials for the Age of War period.

We were given precise instructions that they were just generic, so we’re not using them to change intro dates.

Ahhh. Ok. That makes sense then. So, basically, a Crosscut is just the brand name of the most-well-known version, not necessarily the first Industrial used for logging.

Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask, but why was the Beagle Active Probe removed from the Raven -3L? And what was the weight replaced with?

I saw on the Sarna wiki that the errata (version 2.0) for Technical Readout: 3050 Upgrade removed the BAP. And a google search found this thread, with a dropbox link: https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=8600.0
But it doesn't say why the BAP is gone or what's in its place. Is the errata here in error?

**EDIT**

The older one has the layout's a lot different and it is there...just 'buried'.


I'm not the errata Guy, but the Raven 3L shows as having a BAP.

There is currently two record sheets for 3050, one (C) 2007, and one (C) 2011. The 2007 omitted the BAP, but the 2011 has the BAP.

Make sure the cover looks like this (2011):



as opposed to this (2007):

It was only removed from the Armament list.  It's still on the 'mech, it's just not a weapon.  It was just updating to stay consistent with what is listed in armaments.  The Firestarter has an active probe, but is not listed in Armaments for example.

I think that's a bad move. The list should be weapons and equipment, so you have 1 spot to find everything the unit can do, as opposed to hoping you find the equipment on the crit sheet, and then also know what it does. It's making it harder, not easier.

I agree.  I was looking through record sheets last night and noticed a few in 3145 that have Coolant Pods listed in the crit table but not under the weapons and equipment.  Makes them easier to accidentally overlook.

It’s listed on that page already under targeting and tracking. As ECM is under communications. The Beagle Probe was listed twice. Once under armament and again under targeting and tracking.

We are not taking about the record sheet. We are talking about the Technical readout.

it's still listed in the RS (see RS: Succession Wars for the most current example). The sheets were made in MML, which puts gear in the equipment box.

So was looking at IO for various reasons, and noticed that the Universal Technology Advancement Table (pg 51) has the Availability rating for the Standard JumpShip Construction option as "DEDF".

Is this correct? It seems a bit off that the availability is even higher than it is for the Succession Wars.
