pg. 48, Turret TUR(#)
Quote
Weapon attacks made using the turret cannot be combined with any other special attack ability (such as IF, FLK, and so on).

This paragraph directly contradicts the description of turrets on pg. 133 of the Companion, when determining special abilities during unit conversion.

Quote
If weapons that qualify for other special unit abilities—such as AC, FLK, IF, and so forth—are also mounted in the turret, the values covering only the turret-mounted versions of those weapons must be calculated as well, and added to the unit’s TUR special accordingly."

Suggestion: Change text from the top passage to read "Weapon attacks made using the turret cannot be combined with any special attack ability not included in the unit's TUR special ability."

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

Version 2.1 has just been released.  Mostly we're dealing with little things, but the major items included this time around are:

Aerospace units with RCN can now spot for artillery
New to-hit modifiers for jumping units and grounded dropships
New Standard-level artillery rules (thanks all for your helpful comments in previewing these)
Revamped Motive System Damage that makes vehicles more vulnerable and brings those rules more in line with TW's version

The rules will sit here for a few days or a week, and if no major issues are found, it will go live to the main BT website then.  As always for a core rulebook, the errata should not be considered in a fixed and final form until it appears on the BT website.

I'd like to thank you all for your errata reports and rules questions.  They're greatly appreciated.

As mentioned, this would be updated if issues were found.  Following the release of the standard rules artillery, it was decided to bring both artillery versions in line with each other in terms of damage.  Thus, both artillery rulesets now use the reduced damage values that originally appeared in the standard rules version.  The errata in the first post has been updated to reflect this (version number is the same, as it will remain until the errata goes lives on the main website, but you'll notice the date has been updated to reflect today).

It seems to have held up, so it will be going live on the main webpage today.  While I waited a couple of new rulings were issued, and I've folded them in as well.  The official v2.1 has a date of 6 June, in line with the new TacOps and TW errata.  The following were added since I first previewed it here:

Artillery table updated/corrected
AoE damage and mechanized battle armour clarified
Drone mod removed from to-hit table (it's already got a separate rules section explaining that it's actually a skill rating mod; didn't want to confuse people into thinking it was applied twice)
Strafing updated
Removed an accidental double-entry

p77, Cluster artillery munitions (section begins on previous page)
after
"For targets outside the original template but within the expanded AoE template, the cluster artillery delivers half its modified damage (rounded down)."
add
"Any value reduced from 1 to 0, whether in the original AoE template or in the expanded AoE template, receives a 0* (see Minimal Damage p XX)."

Change the damage values in the example
"Thus, a cluster shot from an ART-LT weapon, which ordinarily inflicts 5 damage to the point of impact, would be reduced to 4 points of damage to all targets with the 6” AoE template, and 2 points of damage to all targets within the additional 2” of the edge of the 6” AoE template."

p73, Artillery
Add a new section
Artillery Attacks while Airborne
An airborne unit (VTOL with elevation, or any airborne aerospace/conventional fighter, WiGE, support vehicle with VTOL or aero movement) can make artillery attacks only with the ARTAIS or ARTAC special abilities.  An airborne unit can only make indirect artillery attacks and only ground targets (units or Points of Interest) may be targeted. Other artillery attacks (other Artilllery types or direct fire Arrow IV) can only be made while grounded.
If the attacking unit is on-board (including an aerospace unit with a flight path on the ground map) it follows the artillery rules as normal, but with an additional +1 to-hit modifier for an airborne artillery attack. A unit with a flight path may choose any point along the flight path to make the attack from.
If the attacking unit is on the abstract aerospace Radar Map, it may make the airborne artillery attack from the Inner Ring. This attack will have a flight time of 1 turn, and also have the +1 to-hit modifier for an airborne artillery attack.

p85, add a new section
Attacks by Buildings
Standard buildings have no weapons and cannot make attacks.  Advanced Buildings will have their own unit card and, if armed, can make attacks as a normal unit.  Turrets on buildings are a separate attack from their standard weapon attacks, and they make this attack in addition to their standard weapon attack.  An advanced building can make a standard weapon attack, a turret attack, and a REAR special ability attack each turn if it has damage values for each of those (see REAR special ability for rules on combining REAR and standard weapon attacks).

If not already addressed, a clarification would be most helpful here:

Alpha Strike P76
Air-Defense Arrow IV

Air-defense Arrow IVs
may not target ground
units (including grounded
aerospace units, or airborne VTOL, or Wige), nor may
they target airborne units
beyond the Inner Ring on
the Radar Map.

Insert - bolded entry above.

If the engagement continues (see below for resolving continuing engagements), the front firing arc may not be used against any other target.  If the unit has already attempted (successfully or not) to continue an engagement this turn, the unit automatically is forced to choose not to continue any other engagements it is in."

Abstract Aerospace Movement (p. 54)
First paragraph, last sentence

Units with a current Thrust of 10 or higher can move two zones per turn.
Change to:
Units with a current Thrust of 7 or higher, if in the Outer or Middle Rings at the beginning of the Movement Phase, can move two zones per turn.  Units with a current Thrust of 10 or higher can move two zones per turn even in the Inner Ring or Central Zone.

p70, Combat Option: Variable Damage
add before example

“Overheat, NARC, bonus damage from attacking to the rear, special abilities and other effects that add to damage are checked for variable damage, each point rolling as described above.  A unit with 2/2/2 attacking at short range to the rear of the target would roll three, twice for its 2 damage at short range and once for attacking from the rear.
AMS, armor special abilities and other damage reduction effects is done after checking for variable damage.  So if a unit with 3/3/2 and the IF special ability attacks a unit with AMS at medium range, the attacker rolls three dice (for its 3 damage at medium range). The total after rolling for variable damage is then reduced by 1.”
