Tactical Operations: Advanced Rules expands the BattleTech core rules of Total Warfare or the BattleMech Manual with optional additional rules. Amongst others, the book offers more extensive rules for movement as well as for combat, exotic environments, artillery, minefields and crew morale. Another major part are the game and design rules for complex structures.

Tactical Operations: Advanced Rules was released alongside Tactical Operations: Advanced Units & Equipment, that covers advanced weapons and equipment as well as the rules for large support vehicles, inclusive the corresponding construction rules.

From the back cover[edit]

Hostile Environments!

Take your warfare to a whole new level of excitement! Deploy under cover of exotic weather and severe planetary conditions. Surprise your enemy with your mastery of new battlefield tactics—from artillery to command-level comms to minefields! A daring commander can take advantage of any or all of these… if he’s brave enough to seize the moment!

Tactical Operations: Advanced Rules is the one-source reference for advanced rules that apply to on-world operations. It includes new movement and combat options.
