Clan Troops is a supplemental rulebook that expands upon rules introduced in BattleTroops. Besides modifications made to existing rules, one of the biggest changes is the introduction of rules for using Battle Armor, armored power suits that are more difficult for conventional infantry to take down. The book also introduces new terrain types, equipment and abilities, such as calling in artillery strikes and most importantly, true anti-BattleMech operations.

The book also provides altogether 16 scenarios set during the Clan Invasion of the Inner Sphere from the perspective of infantry commanders, from the invasion of Santander's World in 3049 to the Battle of Tukayyid in 3052. Plotting Elementals and Clan 'Mechs against regular, armored and battle armored infantry of the Inner Sphere.

Also included are some errata on the original BattleTroops game as well as miniatures rules (i.e. playing without a board).
