Description[edit]

Field Manual: Capellan Confederation was the seventh in the Field Manual series. The book detailed the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces, including a brief history of the Capellan Confederation the focused on the smallest Successor State's post-3025 existence, unit descriptions, synopses of major military training centers, and a description of the ways in which the CCAF's military bureaucracy works. After the fictional descriptions, the book detailed new rules for BattleTech and, for the first time, MechWarrior, Third Edition. It wrapped up with new equipment and new units that made use of that equipment.

FM:CC updated the Confederation to 3063. It also brought the Capellan-St. Ives War to its final conclusion.

From the back cover[edit]

Ravaged during the Succession Wars and poorly governed by paranoid Chancellors, the Capellan Confederation has languished at the mercy of its more powerful neighbors for centuries. However, the time of Xin Sheng has arrived. A new birth. The devious and brilliant Sun-Tzu Liao leads his people into a glorious era of national pride and prosperity. Through subterfuge and warfare, he is driven to reclaim everything the Confederation has lost.

BattleTech Field Manual: Capellan Confederation provides an in-depth look at the rising power of House Liao, including profiles on every Confederation regiment and the regiments of the newly conquered St. Ives Compact. Special rules reflecting the unique abilities of each regiment are included, along with new equipment and 'Mechs exclusive to the Capellan Confederation.
