Mirko Bader (born 1971) was the (co-)author and producer of Heavy Battle (together with Jens Kleinholz for the first four issues), a German BattleTech fanzine that published altogether eight issues from 1991 to 1993.
He joined Ulisses Spiele in 2016 as an editor and game designer, after having worked as an editorial journalist for daily and weekly newspapers since the mid-1990s and as a hobby game designer on the sidelines. Ulisses Spiele has been the holder of the German BattleTech license since 2011, but Bader apparently isn't working on the BattleTech line in any significant capacity, if at all.
He also drew some of the artwork of the fanzine; see Category: Works by Mirko Bader.
- According to himself in a Youtube presentation/interview (German) promoting his "Hexxen 1733" game
- This Sarna.net editor sent an email to Ulisses Spiele inquiring about Bader, and he personally replied via email and confirmed that he was indeed the same person who had published the Heavy Battle magazine.
