Page 8, MechWarrior George McPhearson:
"Attached to House Davion’s Capellan March Militia, ... McPhearson is respected and well-known throughout the Free Worlds League for his fighting skill in the small ‘Mech."

Need to assign him to one House or the other.

Page 60, Icarus II

Page header is missing.

Fix: Add Page Header.


Page 20, Second paragraph of the Overview Section

The following passage references a section that does not exist in this TRO:
[EDITOR’S NOTE: though this design technically belongs in the Star League section of this briefing, its modern association with the Dragoons warrants its inclusion here.]

Fix: Remove the entire editor's note.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

P. 146: Awesome, third column under heading "Lieutenant Giles “The Bangers” Barners:"

Issue: The following two sentences are contradictory at least at face value:
"Barners is considered the ace Awesome MechWarrior of House Kurita with seventy-one confirmed ’Mech kills. Barners’ lance of black-painted Awesomes formed the backbone and fist of Brion’s Legion’s Wernke Battalion."

The rest of the graf treats Barners as a member of Brion's Legion, which is assumedly his unit. But that sentence could be confusing, unless the reader knows that Brion's Legion was employed by the Combine during the last years of the Third Succession War.

Suggested Fix: Either:

1. Remove the reference to House Kurita
2. Amend the paragraph to make Barners' relationship with House Kurita clearer.

Page 110, 2nd column, paragraph under the "Deployment" header"

Issue: Paragraph begins with the following sentence: "On Al Na’ir, a level II consisting of a trio of Lancelots was credited with disposing of a lance of Atlases that had so far successfully defended the system’s major production facility."

"Consisting" implies that the Level II is exclusively composed of the three Lancelots. Later sentences in the paragraph reveal that the Level II is close to or at the full strength of six 'mechs.

Fix: Change "consisting of" to "including"

Pg 2.

Issue: The Icarus II is missing from the Table of Contents
Solution: This is a bit tricky as there isn't technically space to add it (shrink the font?). I'll leave that up to the person making the big bucks in layout.

You bought the box set and are ready to expand your bt experience. Now what? | Modern Sourcebook Index | FASA Sourcebook Index | Equipment Reference Cards | DIY Pilot Cards | IWM Model Difficulty Database (WIP) | PaperTech Mech Counters

I'm increasingly out of synch with successive iterations of BattleTech authors, but it doesn't stop me from still being utterly convinced I understand the setting better than they do.

Page 60, Icarus II

Page header is missing.

Fix: Add Page Header.
Page 2: The TOC also does not include the Icarus II (I assume it's a result of the missing header)

Fix: Add "Icarus II ...... 60" to TOC

Page 53:

Assassin has 80 pts of armor (5 tons standard plate) assigned, but is only supposed to have 72 pts (4.5 tons standard plate).

Correction: Change leg armor from 10 pts each to 6 pts each to match original TRO 3025.

Several references to "Battle-Mech". Replace with "BattleMech".

This is the wrong "too". It should be

Wrong "Its", wrong tense on advanced, re-positing is wrong. Suggested fix:

Curiously, the Draconis Combine has also begun fielding new Bombardier variants.
Bombardier needs to be italicized.

"Weapons" doesn't need an apostrophe. Suggested fix:

Should be "a significant weight savings." Suggested fix:
