Any chance that there could be a quick start record sheet generator on the MUL as well?  I ask because while it would help me with con/demo games but I think it would also help draw in more players yet not compete with the existing record sheet line.

It would be awesome, but it's been beyond our ability to implement.

Fast Recon Cavalry Point, 67th BattleMech Cluster, Iota Galaxy
 
Unit Type Infantry - Conventional Infantry - Wheeled



Hi,  this should be listed as Hover infantry, not wheeled.

Fixed, thanks.

Mad Cat III Standard might be Missing a Faction

Unit: Mad Cat III Standard

Link: http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/4561/mad-cat-iii-standard

Overview: I believe the Mad Cat III Standard should be added to the Mercenary unit list for Early Republic, Late Republic, and Dark Ages.

Reasoning and Evidence: The other models of Mad Cat III are listed as Mercenary units, and no special lore exists to establish why they wouldn't buy the Standard model as well. Additionally, page 148 of TRO: Experimental states "the Diamond Sharks are readily selling the Mad Cat III to every interested buyer." It lists several Houses in particular, but I imagine mercenaries would want this machine too.

Additionally, Mercenaries are listed as buyers for most other 'for Inner Sphere purchasers' Mad Cats, such as Mad Cat Mk. II and Mad Cat Mk. IV.

Edit: Further, the Kell Hounds and Wolf's Dragoons are also listed as users for the Standard model.

Suggested Change: Add Mad Cat III (Standard) to Mercenary listings for those three eras (Early Republic, Late Republic, Dark Ages).

Thank you for your time!

done.

I was looking at the Marksman Artillery Vehicle (Standard) and it is listed as general IS availability in the late SW yet it comes with ferro armor?

I thought Ferro would make it not available in this era?

Removed from Late Succession Wars.

Thor II E is missing from the MUL

The variant appeared only in the 3150 book and not in the original 3145 rendition. It has a full stat line, not just a description, and should be easy to include with a proper BV and AS card.

Done.

Thang-Ta changed to 3079.  Marten Scout VTOL, 3021 is 124 years before 3145. So that is "more than a century".

Oops, sorry for wasting your time, I was tired and I read that as 3121.

A couple more small catches:

http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/6595/di-multipurpose-light-vtol-standard
http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/6596/di-multipurpose-light-vtol-gunship

Problem: Both entries use "DI Multipurpose Light VTOL ..." in the unit name. TRO:3145 LC pp. 12-13, the unit is only referred to as "DI Multipurpose VTOL ...". Personally I think it is clear, but I just thought I would mention it.



http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/6488/red-kite-attack-vtol-standard

Problem: Date Introduced is 3121. From TRO:3145 FWL, the first line of the description states, "Imstar introduced the Red Kite in 3093,..."

If errata should be reported for TRO:3145 FWL, let me know. Thank you!

There never was a standard for naming vehicles like there has been for 'mechs, so the MUL created one.  In particular, giving the "type" of vehicle in the name. This is throughout vehicles.  It doesn't mean it's more correct (or less), just that we have a standard we use that is often more than what the TRs have had.

http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/3782/bandit-hovercraft-base

Problem: Base variant of the Bandit Hovercraft is listed as only available to Wolf's Dragoons until its extinction after the Jihad. All other variants list the Bandit with Mercenary and Wolf's Dragoons availability until their extinction.

Considering that the Base variant is any variant sans pod-mounted equipment -
Solution: Add Mercenary to the Civil War and Jihad availability for the Bandit Hovercraft Base. (Would also check the Badger availability too.)
