Mercenaries Supplemental Update continues the Field Manual series of sourcebooks detailing mercenary units, bringing the remaining major mercenary commands into the opening years of the Jihad. Along with brand-new units, the title also provides the status of the Inner Sphere's various Hiring Halls, rules for running units during this specific period and some new battlefield units.

From the back cover[edit]

The Edge of Extinction

In October 3067, a war begun that unleashed the horrors upon the Great Houses, atrocities thought abandoned with the First Succession War. And for the mercenaries of the Inner Sphere, this war has far-reaching consequences. With the heart and soul of the mercenary trade annihilated on Outreach, the reliability of every mercenary command is called into question. Some Houses now consider their most stalwart work-for-hire commands as enemies, and mercenaries, from the elite to the dregs, are fighting for their lives... and more importantly, their reputations.

Classic BattleTech Mercenaries Supplemental Update details the fallout of the opening years of the Jihad and its impact on mercenaries. This product updates all major mercenary commands currently embroiled in the Jihad, covers the various Hiring Halls, and provides details on brand-new mercenary commands springing up from the remains of commands shattered in the opening years of the Jihad. Mercenaries Supplemental includes rules for running mercenary commands during this era and a section detailing newly premiered battlefield units.


Also See[edit]


One notable difference in this book from the previous Supplemental I, Supplemental II, and Field Manuals is that the unit briefs do not include a detailed breakdown on the sub-units of the forces presented. Instead, the written history of the unit may be longer.
