Era Clan Invasion era


This title introduces a new combat asset, the ProtoMech, as well as new Inner Sphere and Clan BattleMechs, OmniMechs and, also for the first time, Clan combat vehicles.

The book was reprinted in 2009 under the Catalyst Game Labs emblem, with new cover art. Unlike the other FASA-era Technical Readouts, 3060 did not receive the Catalyst Upgrade treatment, however. Other than the new cover art, the record sheets and BattleForce 2 statistics were removed, the Battle Values listed were changed to the BV 2.0 system found in the TechManual, and all errata to date was corrected. Accompanying the re-release was a new, PDF-only PDF Record Sheet book, which included new variants developed during the Jihad (not detailed in the TRO itself).

From the back cover[edit]

The Great Houses of the Inner Sphere have created a new Star League to end the clan threat, launching an all-out attack against the most powerful Clan, Smoke Jaguar. During this campaign, the Inner Sphere was assaulted by a new and deadly creation: the ProtoMech. Swift and deadly, these half-size 'Mechs proved agile and difficult to destroy. Now, other Clans will quickly field this potent new weapon against the Inner Sphere, hoping to once more tip the balance of power in their favor.

BattleTech Technical Readout: 3060 provides descriptions, game statistics and complete rules for using the Clans' newest weapon in your BattleTech game: the ProtoMech. Additionally, new Inner Sphere and Clan BattleMechs and OmniMechs are included, as well as Clan vehicles.
