Front Lines (subtitle: BattleCorps Anthology, Vol. 6) is a print anthology of nine short stories previously published via BattleCorps throughout 2009, plus one previously unpublished story (The Discovery of Command). It was first released at GenCon 2016. As usual, it also includes a foreword ("Forward") by editor Jason Schmetzer and an "About the Authors" section.

This was the last of the BattleCorps print anthologies. The site would publish its last story (Permanent Losses) in December of 2016, and went offline a few months later. The line of print anthologies continued in 2017 with Legacy, but this was published as a BattleTech anthology, and not under the BattleCorps moniker.
