One advantage I have with other BattleTech writers is that I have been around since the original 3025 sourcebook. I also kept as lot of material we were provided as authors. I feel safe in violating my NDA since this material is dated back to the last century. Note: I will be releasing a lot of stuff over the next few months, so I encourage you BattleTech fans to follow my blog…hint, hint…)
This was a little gem I found on the back of the Archer artwork we were sent when we did the sourcebook. It shows the variants of the ‘Mechs (our blessed Unseen) broken down by which house uses which variant. It also outlines the original mercenary units and which ones they use.
I honestly don’t remember if we actually followed this chart, but it is a cool nugget of BattleTech history. You have to remember that back at this time the universe was still in flux in many respects. That, and I don’t take orders well (a character flaw on my part.)
Soak it in and enjoy!
