A number of faction logos have been updated with newer renditions.
Filtvelt has been moved from Inner General to Periphery General for the Jihad (it remains Periphery General for all other eras). This is mostly to correct the strange anomaly of the breakaway state on the fringe possessing a large number of very high-tech mechs for less than a decade before losing them in 3081. Forcebuilding between the Jihad and Republic era should be more consistent going forward.
Each faction page now has a link to the appropriate factional CamoSpecs page. Note that none have been added for factions that are not featured at CamoSpecs (sorry, Burrock fans).
For a time, certain units have been listed under the rules level "Era Specific." This was to indicate the unit possessed equipment not present in a core book - e.g. primitive mechs and the prototype gear from Starterbook: Sword and Dragon. Since the publication of Interstellar Operations, this largely no longer applies. All units formerly classified as Era Specific have been reclassified to their appropriate levels. The single exception is the set of special buildings from the FASA-era McCarron's Armored Cavalry scenario pack. These were not designed under any current rules paradigm and will remain Era Specific.
Welcome to the BattleTech Master Unit List. Since even before Total Warfare was first published, it has been our goal to provide BattleTech fans with a comprehensive list of game units and their corresponding Battle Value.
This product is the first Battle Value list for units using the Total Warfare and BattleMech Manual rules set. It offers over 7,000 variants for well over 900 individual combat vehicles.
We have also provided faction availability for most eras ranging from the foundation of the Star League up until the end of the Dark Age.
Regular updates to the Master Unit List will provide new units and information from upcoming product releases. Also planned for the future are the completion of Early Succession War faction availability and a corresponding expansion of the Homeworld Clans.
This release covers known information meant to compliment published products; as such, it will not cover the Homeworld Clans after 3081, nor any remnants of otherwise "off-screen" factions such as potential Word of Blake or Wolverine survivors.
ilClan-era availability will be addressed once the era takes a more defined shape. This will be a significant undertaking with several layers of review. Items may be added on a case-by-case basis at our discretion, but general availabilities are a long way off. Your patience is appreciated.
