Description

This title combines previously released material (from the Field Manual series) with first-time published articles on BattleMechs, combat vehicles, aerospace fighters, OmniFighters, DropShips and WarShips, all set on the eve of the Jihad.

Catalyst Game Labs later reprinted the book with a new cover and with errata applied.

From the back cover

In the savage FedCom Civil War that rocked the Lyran Alliance and the Federated Commonwealth for the past five years, new machines of war have been rapidly tested and put in the field to help turn the tide of battle in each faction's favor. The Clans and other Houses have also been busy, as the internal and external conflicts drive the rapid deployment of new military hardware.

Classic BattleTech Technical Readout: 3067 provides descriptions, game statistics and illustrations for new BattleMech and vehicle designs. It finally unveils the next generation of Inner Sphere aerospace fighters and OmniFighters, as well as the Clan's second-line fighters. A handful of new DropShips are also premiered. This technical readout includes those designs previously published in the Field Manual series.
