Using a mix of previous TRO:3055 edition 'Mechs and OmniFighters, with new and republished Solaris VII designs, this title also offers, for the first time, units built with Level 3 equipment and all new artwork.
Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade (reprint) presents the Solaris VII 'Mechs built using prototype technologies. Upgraded in appearance and technology, the designs first presented in the Solaris VII Box Set and Solaris: The Reaches are now back in print, along with several new Solaris VII designs. In addition to the upgraded appearance of selected Clan designs, all the art work for Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade is new, providing fresh illustrations of now classic Inner Sphere BattleMechs and Clan OmniFighters.
The 'Mechs in the Solaris VII BattleMechs section are constructed using select equipment found in Tactical Operations. To use those designs, players will need that book.

- This book is an interesting mix of previously published designs with fantastic-looking new ones; an impressive "revision" of the TRO series.
- Much like Technical Readout: Project Phoenix, TRO3055 Upgrade also serves the purpose of providing in-universe justification for updated Reseen visuals for remaining Unseen 'Mechs - the Clan IIC designs and the ComStar sourcebook 'Mechs using art produced by Victor Musical Industries, Inc. and a number of the Solaris VII boxset 'Mechs that used art produced by Studio Nue.
