Colloquially known as the 1993 Update Flyer, this booklet does not appear to have a proper title. It was released by FASA as a free advertisment handout to promote the BattleTech universe in 1993.

It is 8 pages including the front and back cover.

Contents[edit]

The Explorer Corps Campaign Set that was advertised here as a boxed set was never published in this form. The project was instead reduced to what became the Explorer Corps sourcebook. In a similar vein, the summary given for (The) Far Country is markedly different from the actual content of the novel that was ultimately published under this name.

Notes[edit]

  • The illustration for the cover was re-used from the Luthien (scenario pack).
  • In typical FASA fashion the two new 'Mechs featured were thinly veiled references to another intellectual property (the Looney Tunes characters of The Road Runner and The Tasmanian Devil). Both 'Mechs are fully canonical now owing to being published in other canonical products, but in both cases the exact version presented in the Update Flyer as reports by ComStar ROM field operatives behind Clan lines in the Clan Jade Falcon occupation zone turned out to be misreports or canon rumors.
