Content

Comnet was the BattleTech magazine published quarterly by the MechForce United Kingdom (MFUK). Containing mostly internal MFUK news, it also had some original content like fluff for MFUK 'Mech designs.

Altogether 47 issues were produced. The 47th was accidentally misnumbered as Issue 46; hence, two different Issues carry the number 46.

The 47th and final issue was published after the death of Bob Nicholls, who was widely regarded as the person essentially running the MFUK organization. It contains the parting words from Nicholls's wife Wendy, closing the doors on MechForce UK under the heading "Widow Tech".

Canonicity[edit]

The Comnet magazine does not fall under the current definition of Canon for the BattleTech universe.

The MechForce UK organization was officially sanctioned by FASA, therefore Comnet can arguably be regarded as an official (apocryphal) BattleTech publication. However, its content was not checked for continuity whatsoever by FASA.
