  • Submitted by BattleTech fan and BattleCorps contributor Alex Fauth, Big Kev's Brigade were one of the fan submitted mercenary unit names selected by Catalyst Game Labs for use in the Second Succession War sourcebook - Topic: Second Succession War Mercenaries - by the fans!
  • Based on additional material that was submitted by the author but not published (and which is thus technically Fanon/Non-canon), the commanding officer was Colonel Kevin "Big Kev" Batterson; their insignia was a cheerful cartoon man giving a big thumbs up while grinning; their parade color scheme is teal with a purple trim; and he unit's unofficial motto was "I'm excited".[2]
