1st Print Edition
p. 33 Those left behind - Joining the AFFS
the 13th Royal French Dem-Brigade is shown to become the 4th, 5th & 8th Deneb Light Cavalry. However in numerous sources (HDSB, FM:HD) 4th DLC is said to be one of the Rapid Deployment Mixed Armed Forces.  FM:HD p. 84 specifically says that these units did not appear on the TO&E of the regular SLDF and that there were units of the RDMAF in every combat region of the SL.  So the 13th should not be the source of the DLC units. (or at least the 4th, it is possible that the 5th & 8th were formed from the 13th French)

Correction:  Remove the 4th DLC (and possibly the 5th & 8th) from the listing on page 33 of the 13th Royal French Demi-Brigade.

PDF 1st Printing, Page 140, "Major Periphery States"

Issue: The Concordat Jaegers are listed incorrectly as the Concordat Jeagers.

Solution: Correct the spelling to Jaegers.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

PDF & Print

Page 165 "Major Factory Worlds Table"

Under Draconis Combine Andurien is named as a controlled world (obviously incorrect) - possibly should be Altair (as per place holder in 2SW book), although this would also be incorrect as this world was still within the Terran Hegemony Remnant at 2786.

Under Lyran Commonwealth worlds - New Earth is listed, this is incorrect as according to the maps in 1SW book, and released ISaW 1SW PDF map, New Earth was still within the Terran Hegemony Remnant.

Another Comment as regards this list, there probably should be a list of Factory Words remaining within the Terran Hegmony Remnant, such as Quentin, Dieron and numeous others (Bryant, Graham IV, Alula Australis to name a few).

All versions

Pages 170 to 178, ISW Combat Command Conversion Tables (All Factions), ACS Combat Unit Conversion Tables
 
According to the Conversion Rules in Interstellar operation (see quote below) the Jump values from the ACS Combat Team/SBF Formation Conversion Table have been incorrectly applied to all TMM values (the 3 divisor has been missed).
 
Quote from page 330, Interstellar Operations, STEP 3D, “JUMP: Average together the JUMP of the Combat Teams and divide the result by 3 (round normal). And add this to the TMM below.”
 
As per the DCMS list all Infantry Regiment TMM values should all be 2 (not the 3 shown on all the others)

Note: I'll need to dig up dates to assign for errata, both entries are correct, but one is for early in the year (pre-1SW), the latter for the very start of the war (December-ish)

Any update on this? I thought the discrepancy was explained by the asterisk on p. 17 that it doesn't include "reserve or non-combat vessels" while p. 140 does include those vessels. The DCA would have 5 of those, and LCN 1. But the FWN actually loses 4 between the two tables.

The FWN got shoved around a bit in 2785 at Bolan (Manaslu, Talwar, Turk, Tyberium) and Denebola (Francisco) but those losses predated both figures so that's unlikely to be the reason for the discrepancy.

Is "ISW" the new "ISaW"?  I'm just trying to keep things straight...  ???

* VERSION: PDF edition (don't know which version)
* LOCATION: Page 95: "Federated Suns Counteroffensives 2801–2818" (map)

* THE ERROR: Unlike the issues previously noted with the Capellan-FedSuns map on page 92, this map seems more accurate as of 2797 but has conflicts with no less than the following systems (grouped by the states that should be in control):

LC/FWL: the systems shown as being in the Terran Hegemony
FWL: Vanra, Carbonis
CC: Ronel, and probably also Deneb Kaitos, Addicks, Ankaa, Hean, Tybalt, and New Florence.

On the LC/FWL/Hegemony side, it appears that the 2797 map on p. 95 is using the same border as the 2786 map on p. 25, but showing the Capellans having annexed the former Hegemony systems. I fear this could cause a lot of confusion for folks, as not only are systems like New Dallas, Vanra, and Carbonis documented earlier in First Succession War as having been taken before 2797, but the Terran Hegemony Remnants should not even been shown anymore. The map on p. 76 shows these worlds were all annexed by 2791 and should be echoed on p. 95.

The pocket of 8 systems on the Capellan/Combine border up to the horizontal gray line should probably all be listed as under CC control except for New Rhodes. The narrative for Ronel on p. 82, for example, says the fighting began in March 2800, and specifically mentions it being the first of many battles over the next 5 years. The map on p. 44 better documents the territorial changes, which are all described in narrative on p. 45.

* THE CORRECTION: Update state borders to reflect FWL/Lyran gains against the CC and Hegemony, and to reflect CC control over former Hegemony systems on the border with the DC.
