PDF, p16

Sidebar "The Star League Expeditionary Force", 1st paragraph reads:

"Over 100 HAF regiments formed the core of the SLDF. Approximately 100 additional regiments were drawn from House militaries, bringing the SLDF to almost 300 regiments by 2575."

I suggest that the above sentences be corrected to read:

"Over 100 HAF regiments formed the core of the SLDF. Approximately 100 additional regiments were drawn from House militaries, and with ongoing recruiting and force expansion bringing the SLDF to almost 300 regiments by 2575."

I believe that, even allowing for FASA-nomics, "over 100" plus "approximately 100" should equal "almost 200"

EDIT - correction amended to reflect Cray's comments below.

Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

"Over 100 regiments" plus "approximately 100 regiments" and ongoing recruiting to the new force can easily lead to "300 regiments."

PDF, p4:

"Overlord-class DropShip SLS Ascendant
New Silesia, Star’s End System
Rim Worlds Republic
17 February 2751
"

The Overlord wasn't introduced until 2762, as per TRO3057R p52, which is eleven years after Simon Cameron died. I suggest changing the DropShip class to a Dictator to keep it as a roughly comparable vessel.

Page 128/129, game setup:
I cannot find any details declaring the placement of troops or from where they should enter.

This could lead to very unfunny situations like Davions entering through the Draconis home map edge right into the back of the defenders or the heaviest DCMS units placed in the last row of their home map with the Davions entering from their home edge forced to run through the entire town - unable to see those units not to mention killing them within 6 turns (required for objective 1).

Same goes for all other Touchpoints but this might be the most severe.


Random assignment table aerospace fighters, page 147:
Every single SYD-21 Seydlitz is said to be weighing 25 tons.
It weighs only 20 tons.

Change SYD-21 Seydlitz [25] (3039U)
to SYD-21 Seydlitz [20] (3039U)


Random assignment table, vehicles, page 147:
Row 12, heavy shows an Augustus MBT [85] (3085U).
This tank weighs only 75 tons, otherwise it would be an assault vehicle.
Change to: Augustus MBT [75] (3085U)
