p97, second and third paragraph (Reflective Armor and Reactive Armor)
remove "multiply its BattleTech armor factor by 0.75, and round up before converting it to its Alpha Strike armor value. In addition to this, "
from both armor types.

Reflective Armor: If a unit features reflective armor, the unit receives the Reflective Armor (RFA) special ability, as long as all of its armor is reflective.
Reactive Armor: If a unit features reactive armor, the unit receives the Reactive Armor (RCA) special ability, as long as all of its armor is reactive.

p97, Patchwork Armor
remove references to Reflective armor having a multiplier

Patchwork Armor: Patchwork armor is a rare oddity in which the unit features multiple different armor types. To find the BattleTech armor factor, it is necessary to group like armor types together and apply their appropriate multipliers (if any) before finding the final sum. For example, a ’Mech unit which features hardened armor over its torso, but standard armor on its arms, legs and head, would double the armor point value of its torso (to account for the hardened armor).

p. 100, Converting Weapons example text.  The following is the correct text:

Combined, this means the Mad Cat Mk
II’s Short range value would be 7 points ([1.245 x 2 Gauss
rifles] + [0.7 x 4 ER medium lasers] + [0.6 x 2 LRM 10s] = 6.49,
rounded up to 7.)


     Finally, at Long range, the Clan Gauss rifles continue to
deliver 1.5 points per weapon, but the ER medium lasers deliver
nothing as they are now out of range. The LRM 10s aren’t,
however, and continue to produce 0.6 damage each at this
bracket. This yields a Long range value of 5 ([1.5 x 2 Gauss rifles]
+ [0.6 x 2 LRM 10s] = 4.2, rounded up to 5).
     Before adjusting for any other factors—such as the Mad Cat
Mk II’s heat management capabilities—this gives the ’Mech an

Alpha Strike damage value of 7/7/5.

p. 58, right column, title:

 should be

Heavy Horseman

(like Light Horseman a unit description above).
And by the way: shouldnt it be Horsemen as there should be more than one?

p.110, table:
iATM 6,  Long range shows damage 1, should be 0,6.

p.114, Naval weapons table:
NAC 25 short range damage is listed as 23, should be 25.

p.121, C3 Emergency Master:
Code is C3BSM#, what refers to a boosted master, not an emergency master.
Code should be C3EM#.

p. 37, replace the IATM entry with the following:

Improved ATM (IATM#/#/#)
     Units with the IATM#/#/# special may conduct missile attacks using Improved ATM munitions. These alternate munitions are:
     Indirect Fire: This represents an IATM firing standard long-range missiles, which enables the unit to execute an attack as if it has an IF value equivalent to its IATM Long-range value (i.e., an IATM2/2/2 special can also act as an IF2 special).
     Magnetic Pulse: Using this alternate munition attack, the unit’s normal attack is reduced by 1 point at Short range. But if this attack hits a target in the Short range bracket, the target suffers a loss of 2 inches of Move, as well as a –1 to-hit modifier for all weapon attacks, throughout the following turn. (Multiple magnetic pulse hits will not stack these modifiers.)
     Improved Inferno: Using this alternate munition attack, the unit’s normal attack is reduced by 1 point at both Short and Medium range. But if this attack hits a target in those range brackets, the target also suffers the effects of a HT#/#/# special attack equal to the numerical value of the unit’s IATM#/#/# special at those ranges, to a maximum of 2 points at any range bracket (i.e., IATM3/1/- will translate to a HT2/1/- effect).

p. 125, replace the IATM entry with the following:
Improved Advanced Tactical Missiles (IATM#/#/#)
     This special ability tracks damage from a unit’s improved ATM and Fusillade launcher weapons, and indicates an ability to use alternate IATM munitions.
     Conversion: A unit receives this special if it carries any number of improved ATM launchers and Fusillade launchers that, when combined, are capable of delivering 1 or more points of damage at Medium range after heat-modification and before final damage value rounding. To find the final attack values for this ability, add up the damage for all of the unit’s improved ATM launchers and Fusillade launchers (indicated on the weapon conversion tables by any weapons with the “IATM” note), and round all sums normally.
     Record this ability as IATM#/#/# where # is the final damage value for each range bracket.


Finally, IATM will need a PV equal to its long-range damage, to allow for its IF ability.

So an MML (without Artemis), would be split 1.0/.375/0 to SRM, and 0/3.75/.5 to LRM.  The 3.75 at medium range, by itself, isn't enough to qualify for LRM or SRM, so unless the unit had more MMLs (or SRMs and/or LRMs) to get those medium range values up to 1.0, the unit would not get LRM or SRM.
(I believe the above LRM/SRM split for MMLs needs errata as it appears to have been left out of the ASC version).

LAM Movement PV
To be written up formally and added somewhere in the PV chapter

BIM/LAM: all move values calculated as normal.  So, for ground it pays for the highest of its ground movement rates (its WiGE move, for LAMs), plus the usual 0.5 extra move cost for jump capability.  For its aero move it pays 0.25 per point of aero Thrust, and another +1 point if it has 10 or more Thrust, all just as with a regular aero (though in practice there are no BIM/LAM units with a Thrust of 10+).  Both its ground and aero move costs are added together.

Comparing the two units: one BIM, and one LAM, both with 8"j.

BIM: Total Move Cost 2.5 pts.
LAM: Total Move Cost 4.5 pts.

and with 10"j.

BIM: Total Move Cost 3 pts.
LAM: Total Move Cost 5.5 pts.

NOTE: as IntOps (and thus the LAM rules) are still in beta, these calculations may change.

p21, Variable Damage
changes to match Alpha Strike rulebook errata:

The normal rules deliver all of the unit’s potential damage in a successful attack, but this is rarely the case in actuality, as most units carry many weapon systems that feature subtle variances in their effective range, accuracy, and damage output. To better simulate this effect, any time a unit executes a successful weapon attack, its controlling player must roll 1D6 for each damage point the unit would deliver at that range under standard Alpha Strike rules. For each die result of 3 or more, the attack delivers 1 point of damage (up to its maximum damage potential).

Quote
For example, an AWS-9M Awesome (attack values: 4/4/3) executes a successful attack against an enemy Bushwacker at its Medium range. This attack would deliver 4 points of damage—the Awesome’s normal Medium range attack value—under standard Alpha Strike rules, but the players are using Variable Damage instead, so the player rolls 4D6. The individual die results are 2, 4, 6, and 5. As three of those dice are 3 or higher, the Awesome delivers only 3 points of damage to its target.
When the Bushwacker returns fire, its standard Alpha Strike damage value of 3 at Medium range is likewise resolved by rolling 3D6. Unfortunately for its controlling player, the rolls are 1, 1, and 2. Despite all three rolls resulting in 2 or less, the Bushwacker delivers 1 point of (minimal) damage to its opponent.

Minimal Damage: A successful attack always delivers a minimum of 1 point of damage, even if all of the Variable Damage roll results yield a 2 or less.
0* Damage: When using the Variable Damage rule, units that deal 0* damage forego their usual damage roll. Instead, its controlling player must make a 1D6 roll. If the result is 5 or higher, the attack delivers a single point of standard damage. Otherwise, the attack still hits, but delivers no damage.
If a 0* variable damage attack is successfully delivered against a unit that is underwater or operating in vacuum, and is susceptible to hull breaches, the attack will prompt a hull breach check even if it delivers no damage at all.
Physical Attacks: Variable Damage does not apply to physical attacks.
