The Homeless - Mechs Currently Orphaned by Era TROs
« on: 31 March 2020, 16:43:21 »
DISCLAIMER: This is NOT the place for debating the merits of traditional vs era-based TROs. If that sort of dead-horse nonsense leaks in here I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL TURN THIS CAR AROUND.

We now have three Era-Based TROs with 279 chassis (each has 93 units 194 pages - printing cost consideration?). With the copious unit proliferation in the the 90s and early 2000s, and again between 2008-2013, there were going to be some omissions. What got omitted exactly? See below.

Notes:
* This takes into account all TRO entries in CGL era from which Succession Wars, Clan Invasion, and Jihad were constructed (ie 3039/3050U/3055U/3058U/3060/3067/Project Phoenix/3075/3085)

* It does NOT include sourcebook-only units like the Alfar, Gestalt, Omega, XTRO Succession Wars units like the MAD-4X, etc.

* Each entry is considered discrete - the Commando in 3039 is treated as a separate entity from the Commando in 3050U. Likewise the Project Phoenix and 3085 designs (what I refer to in my personal documentation as Phoenix II units) are listed separately. TPTB opened that can of worms by including the 3085 Shadow Hawk instead of the PP one in TRO: Jihad (admittedly it's a very very small can but I considered it anyway).

* Some otherwise unmentioned units from 3050 get record sheets in RS: Succession Wars. The criteria for inclusion seems to be a debut during the Late Succession Wars (ie the 3040s). Those are accounted for below. I suspect some of the same will happen with RS: Jihad should it appear in the future. I'll update this space accordingly.

* There was also a selection of 2750 units that were split between the Star League high tech forms and Succession Wars downgrades (first (?) seen in 1996's 3025r)

* 3039 and 3050U are a bit convoluted with the multiple strata of omissions - it gets more clear after that.

* Someone doing the planning does NOT like TRO 3060
