Using this page[edit]

The bold links at the top of each cell lead to detailed pages which describe the templates in that section in detail and explain how and when to use them.

If you cannot find the template you are looking for, please click on the section headers that seem most relevant, since there may be templates for a particular usage covered on the detailed pages, but not listed in the table below.

If you still cannot find the template you need, you can request it on BattleTechWiki:Requested templates. For help on creating templates, see Help:Template or contact a user who has identified themself as an member of the Wikiproject:Templates team. Note that in order to maintain consistent design of templates, there have been significant discussions about a variety of templates on our discord

A more comprehensive category system may also be viewed at Category:BattleTechWiki templates.
