I don't think http://www.classicbattletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,7572.msg176567.html#msg176567 is a legitimate errata. The sentence preceeding the line in question is talking about both weapon systems. The only way for the errata suggestion to be true is if the line spoke about each weapon system individually.
Power corrupts. Absolute power is kinda neat.

I think it does need a correction, but 00Dawg has the wrong correction listed.

IMO, it should be "These modern descendants of the original weapons deliver firepower with greater accuracy and ammo-efficiency."

That better indicates that it's talking about both weapon systems upgrades.

This might have been a bit overzealous, but I figured since RS: Phoenix Upgrades is no longer for sale or in the errata rotation, it would need to be done anyway.

Ah.  It gets better.  If it has been changed, it's probably errata for the Hwacha.  I checked the errata after seeing the Hwacha behaved the way I'm describing in that report.

I'll go report the Hwacha, then, and scrub the Marsden I report.

EDIT: Or add it to the existing Hwacha report, anyway.  I'd forgotten I'd reported anything on there.

Source TRO for the Cossack C-1FC is listed as TRO 3060. While the base model the C-SK1 Cossack is described in TRO 3060 no variants are mentioned. The C-1FC is described in a milispecs article from BattleCorps.

Solution: Change Source TRO to BattleCorps.

The MilSpecs descriptions were provided for BattleCorps subscribers to make some fluff - fluff that isn't guaranteed to be accurate and is not subject to errata - for the new variants in RS3060 Unabridged.  Since every single variant in there is sourced to TRO3060, either they're all wrong or this is a deliberate decision to refer things to TRO3060.

Possible errata: pp. 291 version 1.2 .pdf

The Large Laser is given an extinction date; If the medium laser doesn't have one, then it stands to reason nether does the large.

The medium and large laser extinction dates in my version are for the Clans, not the IS.  They're supposed to be there in the former case.

I believe I just forgot to change those after the Milspecs articles were announced.  Ie. They're (RS 3060u new variants/written up in Milspecs) all wrong.

And I could use one for XTRO: Clans if you would.  There's a problem on the new Elemental.

Never mind.  Misread something in TacOps - that part of the rules is easy to misread if you're not looking at it carefully.

I may need one for Wars of Reaving.  I found a mistake in one of the previews on Ben's blog.

I'm not sure that would be the way to handle it.  I think it best if you were to directly leave a comment on the blog itself.

Actually, I'm planning to verify it's there in the PDF and report it then.  It's a very minor error.

EDIT: That's on reflection, not my initial intent.  Call it being a bit loopy.

EDIT 2: Could I have one for Handbook: House Marik?

EDIT 3: Thanks!

Oy vey...

mikewoo is correct that TechManual's listing is 8 tons.  However, per every TRO I checked and the BMRr, TechManual is wrong - both the most recent version and the old pre-DTF FanPro version of the PDF have the error.  I'm reporting it.

EDIT: Done.

Damn straight, you better not be questioning my unit-building skillz!

Actually, blame this one on me. I noticed the error almost a year ago and never reported it. :(

Don't feel too bad, at least you saw it.  I've looked at that chart myself and never spotted it before mikewoo's report made me sit there and run the numbers in increasing disquiet until it occurred to me to look at the Dire Wolf Prime and then the BMRr.

I think it's because it's one of those foundational weapons, twenty years old.  No one actually looks at the chart to see how to use one anymore.

The relevant page numbers are 343 for TechManual and 407 for Tactical Operations.

A question like this ("is this how the rules are supposed to work?") belongs in the rules question forums.  I only deal in confirmed (or presumed confirmed) errors.  Since the TechManual weapons are at issue, I'd ask this question in that forum.  Thanks.
