Per the Rumble Seat quirk rule on p. 205 ("This Design Quirk may not be taken by any unit that employs a Small Cockpit, Torso-Mounted Cockpit, has the Cramped Cockpit Design Quirk, or is classified in the Light or Ultra-Light weight class.") the following units may not have a rumble seat:

Scorpion Minesweeper, p. 33 (light vehicle)
Wolfhound WLF-2H, p. 105 (light 'Mech)
Legionnaire LGN-2F, p. 111 (torso-mounted cockpit)
Ti T'sang DDC TSG-9DDC, p. 121 (small cockpit)
Barghest BGS-4T, p. 127 (small cockpit)
Grasshopper GHR-7P, p. 129 (torso-mounted cockpit)



Deep Lord RCL-ZIM MilitiaMech, p. 125

p. 130 THR-C4 Thunder, Variants section
"Ceres Metals continues to produce the stealth-armored THR2L at Capella,"
THR2L should be THR-2L.

p.174 TR-13G Transit
"Within the month, the Confederation had sold all of the facilities Ceres Metals Industries,"
Missing "to" between "facilities" and "Ceres".

p.190 Vengeance-DC PWS
"Thus, when a Canopian Vengeance DropShip mounting capital missiles appeared along The Republic border,"
"The Republic" should be "the Republic".  We ain't talkin' about a Plato classic here.

Deep Lord RCL-ZIM MilitiaMech, p. 124

Capabilities, 2nd sentence: "The treads of the Dig Lord could be removed and replaced with legs..."

Neither the art, nor the stats of the Dig Lord have treads - both feature plain old legs. There is no reference in the text, and - for completeness' sake - the RS MWDA1 MiningMech does not feature Treads, either. Thus:

Delete first half of sentence.

Legionnaire LGN-2F, p. 110

possible errata - Variants

The paragraph begins with "The Legionnaire 2F can be found in nearly every regiment..." and then goes on to describe limited deployment in Kuritan, Lyran and FWL space. Then it describes the -1X and the -2F deployment at end. Based on this, the probable suggestion is:

replace "The Legionnaire 2F can be..." with "The Legionnaire 2D can be..."

An errata of errata
In the third paragraph under Capabilities, change: “Originally used by StarCorps for their WHM-8D, with production switching…” to “Originally used by StarCorps for the WHM-8L line, with production switching…”

As stated in the thread, the Warhammer should be a -4L, not -8L. 
The MUL shows no -8L model.  ;)

Possible error, and if not, something to keep aware of when doing the record sheets.

Thunderbolt IIC (p. 150)
Under Variants
A heavy-duty gyro and ECM suite add to its resiliency.

Heavy Duty Gyro's are not presently available to the Clans, under standard/advanced rules, unless it's a hybrid design. Not sure if that's intentional.

TRO Prototypes PDF
Barghest, Page 127

Problem Text:
"Notes: *These weapons are mounted in a Quad
BattleMech Turret; Features the following Design Quirks:
EM Interference, Improved Cooling Jacket (ER Large
Laser), Rumble Seat."
Problem Explanation:
I saw that Rumble Seat was removed, but in addition to that, my reading of SO is that EM Interference applies to a specific weapon, like Improved Cooling Jacket. I think either weapon would work, but making it the ERLL would be cruel since the C3 is half the point of the 'Mech. Of course, I fight Lyrans more than I play as them, so either works for me.
Suggested Solution:
"Notes: *These weapons are mounted in a Quad
BattleMech Turret; Features the following Design Quirks:
EM Interference (ER Medium Laser), Improved Cooling Jacket (ER Large
Laser)."
OR
"Notes: *These weapons are mounted in a Quad
BattleMech Turret; Features the following Design Quirks:
EM Interference (ER Large Laser), Improved Cooling Jacket (ER Large
Laser)."

TRO: Prototypes (PDF)
Pegasus, Pg 38, Capabilities, 4th Paragraph
Passage:

The Pegasus' usual pair of SRM 6 racks was replaced
with a single Streak SRM 6 rack. The single medium laser
of the standard Pegasus was replaced with a pair of advanced
X-Pulse weapons. These modern descendants of
the original weapon deliver firepower with greater accuracy
and ammo-efficiency.

Issue:
Incorrect information.  Lasers don't use ammunition.

Legionnaire (p. 110):
In the first (ginormous!) paragraph under Capabilities, change the first two instances of “2F” to “2X”. (The author is starting with a description of the experimental prototype.)
Also in this same paragraph, change the following text: “It was more susceptible to damage from ballistic and missile weapons, and simulations showed it would provide additional protection for the Legionnaire against the many PPC variants now found on Combine ’Mechs but it was usually quickly reduced by multiple MRM and LRM volleys. The computers clearly showed the Legionnaire could reasonably be expected to win against most opponents of similar weight boasting energy weapons, but could be quickly destroyed by a lighter ’Mech carrying MRMs or even rockets.” to “Though it provided additional protection against the many PPC variants now found in the DCMS, it suffered greatly from blunt-force strikes, such as those delivered by sword-wielding opponents. The sims clearly showed the Legionnaire could reasonably be expected to survive against most opponents of similar weight boasting energy weapons, but could be easily defeated by even a lighter ’Mech carrying melee weapons.”
Also, I strongly suggest breaking the first paragraph under Capabilities after the words “our nightmare scenario.”
And, in the first line under Deployment, change: “The Legionnaire 2F can…” to “The original Legionnaire 2D can…”
Finally, I recommend breaking the Deployment paragraph into two, and starting the second with the sentence “The original variant, the Beagle probe-enhanced 1X…”

Also, in the paragraph under Variants, change: “Ceres Metals continues to produce the stealth-armored THR2L at Capella…” to “Ceres Metals continues to produce the stealth-armored THR-2L at Capella…”

Pendragon (p. 139):

Problem #1
Every use of the name Quikscell is misspelled Quickscell.

Problem #2
"In truth, Quickscell’s opportunistic development of the design is the real root cause of Grumman Amalgamated’s distress."  The rest of the paragraph is talking about Quikscell beating Grumman to the punch at picking up components on the cheap, so that's apparently supposed to read "...of the design isn't the real..."

Hello,

PDF, First Release
Page 157, Bullet Suicide Drone

Problem: Vehicle's equipment does not include the remote drone operating system in the notes.

That was because it actually appears in the construction data, right above the armor tonnage.

Hopefully, that helps.

Incorrect wording.

    * pg 96
    * "A number of units fielding multiple Dolas have instituted a field refit know as the DOL - 1A2. with the 1A1 already providing sensor jamming, the 1A2 swaps the standard sword and Angel ECM for TAG and a light vibroblade. These Yoh Ti Ts'angs, as they have been nick-named, have proven extremely popular amongst the Warrior Houses." The Angel ECM + Sword is 3.5 tons. The TAG + light vibroblade = 4 tons. This refit seems to be illegal. Also this assumes light vibroblade is a small vibroblade. If there is a new level of vibroblade that is only 2.5 tons that would do it.
    * I am not sure what to suggest here. A clan Light tag is .5 tons so it would work, or the battle armor's light tag, or the tag can be dropped and switched to more armor or an ERsmall or some other thing i dont see

Wildkatze Fighter TRO Prototypes: (Print), pg. 171
The two tons of MML 5 shows 34/26, this is wrong, it should be 48/40 (LRM ammo, 24 shots, SRM ammo, 20 shots per ton)

Under Armament, lists 2 Series PPS-XIX Medium Pulse Lasers

Should be 4, not 2.

TiG-40 Foxhound Gunboat (page 182)
I'm getting this as 1 ton overweight with the latest Tech Manual errata.

Engine: 58.5t (TM p185 Engine Mass = (Unit Tonnage x Desired Safe Thrust) x 0.065 rounded up to half-ton; (180 x 5) x 0.065 = 58.5)
Fuel: 8t
Fuel Pumps: 0.5t (TM p186 Fuel Pumps = 2% of Fuel rounded up to half-ton; 8 x 0.02 =  0.16, 0.5 rounded)
Structure: 4t (SI: 9; TM p187 Spheroid Small Craft structure = (SI x Tonnage) ÷ 500 rounded up to full ton*; (9 x 180) ÷ 500 = 3.24, 4 rounded)
Crew Quarters: 20t
Controls: 1.5t (TM p189 Controls = Tonnage x 0.0075 rounded up; 180 x 0.0075 =  1.35, 1.5 rounded)
Armor: 16.5t
Heat Sinks: 11t (Heat Sinks: 20; TM p193 Spheroid Small Craft Weight Free Heat Sinks  = √(Engine Tonnage x 1.6) rounded down to whole number; √(58.5 x 1.6) = 9.67, 9 rounded, thus 11 of the 20 installed will require mass)
2 ER Large Lasers: 10t
2 Laser AMS: 3t
2 Improved Heavy Gauss Rifles: 40t
Improved Heavy Gauss Rifles ammo: 8t

Total: 58.5 + 8 + 0.5 + 4 + 20 + 1.5 + 16.5 + 11 + 10 + 3 + 40 + 8 = 181


* The latest errata for Tech Manual states ""Round up to the nearest whole ton."

(Even without the errata, the design would be 0.5t overweight, with the Structure rounding to 3.5t according to the default rounding rules TM p22 for units that use the tonnage standard for weight)
