TO:AU&E, pdf 4th Printing

I'm hoping this has been corrected in the later printings, but I noticed the page references in the table in the back are still to the OG single volume TacOps.  Fixing that would be a heavy lift, but one that really needs to be done.

Page 3 of the version 6.0 TO:AUE errata document lists an errata for Field Guns, page 123:

Under “Game Rules”, second paragraph, last sentence
Ultra and Rotary Autocannon Field Guns are immune to jamming or fire control failure effects, and Gauss-based Field Guns are
immune to weapon explosion effects.
Change to:
Field Guns are immune to jamming, fire control failure, and ammunition or weapon explosion effects. All autocannons may use
special ammunition using the appropriate rules, though the entire platoon must use the same ammo type.

Checking my 6th printing PDF, this errata does not appear to have been applied, and should be applied in the next printing.

As a secondary question, is the section stating "the entire platoon must use the same ammo type" intended to apply to a single turn of fire? It would otherwise contradict an earlier line indicating that individual tons of Field Gun ammo may be of various types. If so, the last sentence could be changed to something like "[...] though the entire platoon must use the same ammo type when declaring weapons fire for the turn." to make this clearer.

6th printing, pdf

p. 224, Arrow IV (Homing) line, Damage Std (Aero) column.

Change the entry to "20** (NA)"

REASON: Arrow IV homing missiles don't always deal 20 damage, and should be treated similarly to Copperhead rounds in the same table (see Arrow IV Homing Missiles on p. 166 and Copperhead Artilery on p. 167 for more details).

6th printing, pdf, page 225

Top chart, headers, the weight of the BA equipment in the top chart is listed as "WT(Tons)".

Since BA can't mount a 400-ton BA LB-X AC, I suggest the WT be changed to "WT(kg)"

This way BA can mount a 400-kilogram BA LB-X AC


Xotl: This was thought to have been fixed in the previous printing, and so was missed for this one as well.  Noting it for a future printing correction.

No change needed. Per the fluff on page 127 handheld weapons have been used during the Star League Era. 3055 just saw the most recent use of them.

Issue: The rules for torso-mounted cockpits state that "If the ’Mech’s head is destroyed, excess damage does not transfer to other locations." However this creates room for abuse by putting all ammunition in the head and getting a location that is both difficult to hit and does not risk unit destruction in the event of ammunition explosion.
Suggestion: Add the following sentence: "The sole exception is ammunition stored in the head, which transfer remaining damage to the Center Torso."

Isn't that inconsistent with how damage transfers in Total Warfare? And why should ammo explosion damage transfer but not headcapping damage?

Transfer diagram doesn't send anything from the head (TW p. 123), as most Mechs are Destroyed with head destruction. Clearly the intent was to leave that intact by having head damage not transfer and rerolling subsequent head hits. But ammo explosions are such an extraordinarily violent and dangerous event that being able to hide several tons of ammunition in a location essentially risk free (looking at you LGN-2F and Ostean) is just cheesy and broken. This singular exception remedies this.

VERSION: TO:AU&E, pdf 4th Printing
LOCATION: p. 118, Energy Storage Batteries info box
THE ERROR: page error; the text points to the wrong page number in Strategic Operations
Quote from: TO:AU&E, p118
When an Energy Storage Battery’s power is delivered via the vessel’s solar sail, normal quick charging rules are followed (see pages 87-88 of Strategic
Operations
).
THE CORRECTION: "(see pages 75-76 of Strategic Operations)."

I'm fairly certain that this has not been fixed in later versions, as I have neither seen it reported here nor found it in the Errata V 7.0 pdf. If it has already been reported or fixed, please disregard.


Xotl: It has been fixed in later printings, but errata will often skip simple page number ref corrections, especially for a book which had hundreds of such, as otherwise the errata doc would be three times the size.  Thanks for the report.

THE ERROR: Battle armor construction data and conventional infantry construction data have their WT units flipped - Battle Armor has its equipment listed in Tons while Conventional Infantry has its equipment listed in kg - this should be reversed so the Battle Armor equipment is listed in kg and conventional infantry should be listed in tons.
