Thank you for the detailed reply.

Given the presence of various mercenary companies in Hansa space by the onset of the Crusade, plus various merc and/or pirate groups fleeing the Inner Sphere and near Periphery in this era (as noted in post-Crusade Shrapnel fiction), perhaps these might account for an occasional arrival of a Wraith into the Hanseatic League at some point prior to 3140?

The list of products in the OTP was not exhaustive. It lists some of what they build, not all of what they build. "Products include" does not mean that every product is listed...  :)

Got it. Yup a Wraith or several could easily arrive in Hanseatic League Space, even via purchase as a conversation piece.  Also, if you want an interesting look at differing design philosophies for RATs across the years, check out Field Manual Periphery's RAT for the Hanseatic Leauge by FASA and then FMU's RAT by FanPro.  FASA made refitted designs far more available then later caretakers by the 3060s. The HL even has Charger 3Ks by 3064...

Yep. I chose language that would allow us to add additional chassis as needed for whatever reason later. (Even the Surtur is not listed in the Braunschweig planet writeup, for example.) And Antwerp hasn't been updated since I wrote the Objectives, so the factory output there could be radically different. (This is why I omitted it from the planetary descriptions and did not set any of the campaign there: trying to leave freedom for myself or other writers later. It also gave me the chance to describe more of the planets and reduce the retread space.)

Makes perfect sense when you put it like that, and no doubt those who come later will thank you for it.
Hopefully back in the Mercenary ranks one day.

The first one is more apt, given the tonnage.

Do they make a Griffin 2N model? You might be abke to take the SRMs off of it and mount them on a Wolverine's shoulders? Or are the Surtur's SRMs supposed to be chest mounted?
