Description[edit]

This is second volume in a series of Technical Readout by Era, which is designed as an introductory companion volume to go with the BattleMech Manual, and thus primarily addressing new players, Technical Readout: Clan Invasion is a compilation of 'Mech designs from Technical Readout: 3050 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3060, Technical Readout: 3067, and Technical Readout: Project Phoenix.

The book's content is mostly taken verbatim from Technical Readout products that preceded it. The book is part of reorganization of the original Technical Readouts to compile them per Era. Some Mechs are not present in this book that were mentioned in early products.

From the back cover[edit]

Invaders from Beyond

On 27 September 3048, the ComStar Explorer Corps JumpShip Outbound Light stumbled onto the Clan Homeworlds, setting in motion a massive invasion of the Inner Sphere by the Clans. At first sweeping all before them with their advanced technologies, the Clans met defeat at the Battle of Tukayyid and were stymied by a 15-year truce. With the clock ticking, the Inner Sphere’s elite took the battle directly to the Clan Homeworlds. There, the destruction of Clan Smoke Jaguar and the defeat of the Clans in the Great Refusal ended the invasion.

In their absence, political machinations continued a cross the Inner Sphere. As the victorious forces returned home, the mighty Federated Commonwealth tore itself apart in a titanic Civil War spanning a thousand light years as Houses Davion and Steiner pitted brother against sister. These large-scale conflicts accelerated technical advancements, as a new generation of BattleMechs and weapons appeared on a hundred worlds of conflict.

Technical Readout: Clan Invasion builds on Technical Readout: Succession Wars with ’Mechs previously found in Technical Read out: 3050 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade, Technical Readout: 3060, Technical Readout: 3067, and Technical Readout: Project Phoenix. This volume features some of the most common ’Mechs from the Clan Invasion and Civil War Eras, each illustrated in detail and accompanied by a description of its history, capabilities, and game stats, a long with their most famous pilots.
