(Answered) Laser Insulator reintroduction
« on: 27 July 2023, 18:59:25 »
Laser Insulators are marked as LosTech as of 2820 on page 38 of the third printing of Interstellar Operations: Alternate Eras. However, it sees a surprising amount of use in Inner Sphere designs, such as the Pandion Combat WiGE. Was it reintroduced to the Inner Sphere at some point? If so, when? Did it ever stop being Experimental?

Most Star League-era technologies were recovered no later than 3075, so laser insulators should be available then.

Could the reintroduction date be added as errata?

Also, I believe they were experimental during the Star League era. Did they ever stop being experimental?

For something straightforward like this, I think you can file an errata suggestion in the errata forum. There'll be threads for every publication where you can link in this discussion, note page numbers, and proposed changes.
