Never got Challenge, but I did buy the complete set of JTAS a few years back from DriveThruRPG a few years back. Marc Miller's selling all the back catalogue at reasonable prices for PDFs.

I just wish CGL would sell the older BattleTech rulebooks for nostalgia's sake.

Not sure about suggesting any mech choices, but from that description, I now want to make that map!

Sounds almost like myself and Traveller these days. I ended up finding some used MegaTraveller materials at the FLGS last week, and though I'll never use them, I picked them up.

Otherwise, life's been lots of stuff supporting my wife on the farm.

Did you ever get any Challenge magazine, the old GDW publication?  Not always easy to get in the UK in
the 90s, but I've still I think got a couple of dozen.  Great publication, and endearingly publisher agnostic
which was welcome.  Ahhh happy days.

Clans are 40k eldar - a high skill army with few wounds. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, or get crushed like a bug.
That does make sense, although I do remember reading somewhere that Shattered Fortress and ilClan were originally one book.

They were one book - three years and a line developer ago.
Well it's highly variable for sure. A pair of heavy fighters can seriously damage a transport without much risk to themselves. I'd say a squad is equivalent to an assault dropship. Let's say two for pocket warship. It then becomes a multiplication of wings, 1 for Corvette, 2 destroyer, 5 against a battle cruiser
In your opinion . . . a company of heavy/assault armor can do a terrifying Lyran Wall of Steel impersonation.

at equal BV for a couple of rounds, sure.  Then it just impersonates a wall of bunkers, since immobilizing them is easier to achieve, than knocking them out entirely.

They could also be Golden Century designs.

Oh good point! I will check my TRO
