I have never heard of this game and its not mentioned in BattleTech: 25 Years of Art & Fiction... has anybody got a source of info on it? --Dmon 15:00, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I googled it. It appears to be old DOS based game based on FASA Battletech. Here the link to it. I have limited access to such website so I can't get on the page. <quote>MechWar, computer game based on BattleTech from FASA.</quote> [1] Only other MechWar, was a old 1975 Tactical Simulator by TSR. Which was a Tank game. Not mech game. However, I don't know if this is same game. It uses hexes just like Battletech...Without downloading it and finding out. I don't know. This MechWar i found. [2]

Well, I can't make a user for some reason, so I guess I'll just do this with the IP address.

Mechwar was created by the late Klaus Breuer, a Battletech fan and just pleasant guy. He fielded a lot of my stupid questions when I was young. 1.12 was basically the last completed project he had with it, and is really what I'd recommend to play.

I don't have much more background to add, he does have some modifications from the base game (no standing on buildings, missiles getting individual to-hit rolls, etc.) but I believe they're all explained in the documentation. If anyone wants to update the main page, feel free, but it's probably best coming from a registered user. Also, please fix that problem.

Rest in peace, Klaus. 13:05, 23 April 2018 (EDT)
