Summary[edit]

MechCommander - Prima's Official Strategy Guide is a guide book for Microprose's 1998 computer game MechCommander set in the BattleTech universe. It provides information on the game mechanics, tips and strategies to completing the game. Chapter 3 provides Technical Readout style information on the 'Mechs that can be purchased. Chapters 6 through 10 give a walkthrough of the missions and how to complete them.

Canonicity[edit]

Like the computer game for which it is a supplement product, this book was produced under a valid license yet does not meet the criteria for canon. Its contributions to the BattleTech universe must thus be considered apocryphal.
