The CGL-branded 2nd corrected printing (2011), with a new cover and all appropriate errata.

Description[edit]

This title is the second in the TRO:3058 series of Technical Readouts. New to the title are notable MechWarriors and crews, as well as new variants. Also, battle armor have been included and the histories of the various models have been updated.

From the back cover[edit]

In the 3050's, the discoveries of long-buried Star League records led to a plethora of new cutting-edge BattleMech and vehicle designs by the end of that decade, resurrected from the blue prints of design firms centuries old and thought lost to antiquity. Now, ten years later, these designs have moved from novelty to workhorse, as the Inner Sphere once more finds itself at war!

Fully updated to circa 3070, Classic BattleTech Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade launches these designs into the current time frame, including notable MechWarriors/crews, as well as new variants. Additionally, a Battle Armor section has been included, providing full Classic BattleTech stats, and updating the histories for these twenty venerable designs.

Notes[edit]

  • Like other Upgrade titles, this edition isn't meant to necessarily replace the original editions, but provide new material to gamers and collectors.
  • Historical: Brush Wars, published the same year as TRO: 3058 Upgrade, shares the same production code (35015). The 2011 second corrected printing of Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade (as published by CGL) changed the cover and the production code (to 35125).
