  • You interrupted me reading TROs for this?

PDF Copyright 2007 WizKids, Page 164

Problem
In the Armament section in the left column, it says there are "2 AIL Arrow IV Launchers".  The Chaparral only mounts one.

Solution
Change quoted text to "1 AIM Arrow IV Launcher".

WFT-2 Wolf Trap

The description in the TRO and the record sheet do not match. Here's the TRO entry with the problem areas in red:

The WFT-2 uses newly acquired technology—a plasma rifle replaces the ammo-starved LB 10-X, and an MML9 replaces the LRM 10 pack. For closer defense against battle armor, a tri-gun arrangement of light machine guns augments the right torso, with an ER medium laser balancing out the design's symmetry.

The first problem is that the ammo-starved LB 10-X is replaced with a weapon with half as many shots! Combined with the fact that an ER medium laser has somehow turned into 3 leads me to believe that record sheet is in error. Something tells me that the two tons spent on the extra medium lasers were meant to be plasma rifle ammo. This way it carries 50% more ammo than the ammo-starved LB 10-X, and perfectly matches the description in the TRO. It would also have much less of a heat problem than the 3 laser version.

In the Crockett's 'Variants' section, there's a bit of leftover editorial notes.

"With ComStar funding the expansion, Grumium Creations began to produce the 5003-3 variant in 3062, and the 5004-1 a year later. Change this last sentence to: Minor upgrades, the 5003-3 exchanges armor for CASE in the right torso, while the 5004-1 changes the small lasers for ER models, drops the SRM-6s to 4s and removes a ton of LB 10-X ammunition to add a C3i suite."

That was corrected in the reprint, but your post reminds me I have yet to re-up the 3050U errata, so thanks for your report.

Ahab AHB-643,  p. 246: "In 3061, BBA began manufacturing two new variants of the venerable fighter."

Problem: The RL mounted on one of those variants is not available until 3064. Suggestion: change date to match introduction date of rocket launchers.

Pg 234: (THK-63 Tomahawk ASF fluff)
“While the Clans retain the design in their second-line forces, the largest number appear with ComStar and the Word of Blake, with a few examples slipping into the DCMS and FWLM due to technology exchanges.”

should read

Print edition, second printing, pp. 126 - 127

There are two problems with Black Hawk/Nova configuration E. The number of critical slots and the tonnage of ATM-12 on p. 127 are transposed - should be 5 critical slots and 7 tons, not the other way around. Also fluff text on p. 126 says the configuration is equipped with ATM-9, not ATM-12. Total mass of pod mounted equipment (with the correction mentioned above) and the amount of ATM ammo per ton suggest ATM-12.

And by the way - the link to errata version 1.0 in the first post is broken. I guess recent changes in dropbox ate more than just XOTL's RATs.
