The ninth in the Field Manual series, Field Manual: Lyran Alliance describes the Lyran Alliance and its military circa 3062. Like Field Manual: Federated Suns before it, FM:LA describes the units, hierarchy, and training practices of the LAAF immediately prior to the Federated Commonwealth Civil War. Also included is a brief history that provides information on the Alliance up to 3062.

Like the other Field Manuals before it, FM:LA includes rules that provides each Lyran unit with special abilities, provides new life paths and sub-affiliations for RPG characters, and new equipment for use in now-Classic BattleTech. FM:LA saw the debut of the Heavy Gauss Rifle and Light Engine, as well as the Stiletto and Fafnir BattleMechs that make use of them. Finally, the massive Mjolnir-class WarShip got its start here, as well.

From the back cover[edit]

House Steiner has always been the unchallenged economic power of the Inner Sphere. Transformed from merchant-princes to a military juggernaut by years of war, the alliance with House Davion gave them the most powerful 'Mechs money can buy and a streamlined chain of command. Now, the Steiner-Davion alliance has fractured from within, threatening to engulf both nations in civil war.

BattleTech Field Manual: Lyran Alliance reveals the strengths and weaknesses of the new Alliance forces. This manual describes each Lyran regiment and its loyalties, profiles and special rules, plus cutting-edge equipment and the latest 'Mechs from the famed Steiner factories.
