v1.1 has been sort of sitting in limbo as the PV revision is worked on, available here but never formally posted to the errata website.  While the PV revision is done, it still needs review from the higher ups.  I don't want to hold back the ASC errata for that any longer, so here's the official release of v1.1.  There's been a few things added over the course of the year (and Antagonizer has changed a bit), so re-read it.  The only PV stuff here is stuff that has already been taken into account on the MUL.

When the full formal PV revision is finished undergoing review, I'll create a version 1.2 with it and up that.

Since it isn't 100% official yet, could I make a small request for teh 1.1 errata? On p.6, the "Range To-Hit Modifiers with Range Master and Sniper SPA's" table: Could you add a line with only Extreme Range Master? It would be +2 +2 +4 +4. It is the only permutation that is not in the table. Not a big deal if you don't, just thought I would ask.

Thanks.

The glorious 6 of June and with it the new errata.  Mostly this just officially releases the new PV revision upon the world (thank you all again for helping with that: it would have sucked without you).

Also note that the Converting Heat document has been heavily reworked to hopefully make it clear (v1.1).

I've searched around for this and see no other mention to this exact issue.
The errata DOES cover a similar issue but lists a different page detail (as per the errata of p186)

In the Alpha Strike Companion
p60
"Positive Design Quirks" table has the following text which seems to be wrong:

Improved Targetting (Short) | +3 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Short range
Improved Targetting (Medium) | +4 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Short range
Improved Targetting (Long) | +5 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Short range

They all confer the 'same' bonus when they should obviously refer to their respective range on which to apply the bonus.

Improved Targetting (Short) | +3 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Short range
Improved Targetting (Medium) | +4 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Medium range
Improved Targetting (Long) | +5 | Unit receives bonus to-hit at Long range

The diamond marked entries in the companion should be deleted, as the interim period described on page 10 under the heading "Standard Rules Modifications" has elapsed, and all of the resulting changes have long since been implemented in both the second printing and the errata documentation.

Affected entries are
  • pg. 16 through 17 - BATTLEFIELD INTELLIGENCE (MODIFIED)
  • pg. 18 - DELIBERATE OVERHEATING (’MECHS ONLY)
  • pg. 18 - MINIMAL DAMAGE
  • pg. 18 - OCCUPYING AND INTERVENING TERRAIN
  • pg. 19 - REAR-FIRING WEAPONS
  • pg. 22 - VARIABLE MOVEMENT MODIFIERS

Removal of these entries would help allay confusion, especially in the case of the wording of the entry not matching exactly the wording implemented in the second printing (see: Variable Movement Modifiers).

Pg 96  Conventional Infantry Conversion.  Paragraph 3.

"If the unit is mechanized—meaning that it is not a beast-mounted
infantry unit, and it features one of the following vehicle
movement codes of h, n, s, t, w, or v—it must multiply its damage
divisor by 2."

Change to:

If the unit is mechanized—meaning that it is not a beast-mounted
infantry unit, and it features one of the following vehicle
movement codes of h, n, s, t, w, or v—it must divide its damage
divisor by 2.

Also,  this section could be written more easily as:
(Number of troops) x (Damage divisor) / 15.  Rounded normally.
