Technical Readout: 3145 Mercenaries (abbreviated TRO:3145M) was the first in a series of faction-specific mini-TROs published detailing combat units in use per faction at the time of the Dark Age era. TRO:3145M focuses on common units used by mercenary forces in game year 3145. The publication was written as an intelligence report on the common designs of Combat Vehicles, battle armor, 'Mechs, and aerospace craft.

Units listed with a asterisk "*" are units which were included in the printed volume of Technical Readout: 3145. Units listed with two asterisks "**" are units which were included in the Technical Readout: 3150.

Publisher's Description[edit]

The March of Progress

The great experiment that was the Republic of the Sphere has failed. Withdrawn behind the Fortress walls, the once-great power has become a silent, opaque remnant of its former glory. Without its influence, old hatreds have risen anew. As war once more rages across the Inner Sphere, new equipment strides across ancient battlefields. Technology, once stagnated by trade restrictions and peace treaties, now surges forward again, testing these new machines in the fierce crucible of war.

Technical Readout: 3145 Mercenaries introduces the wave of new battle armor, vehicle, ‘Mech, and aerospace units appearing across the Inner Sphere in the Dark Age era. Featuring new and matured technology, and presented in this series of faction-specific PDFs, these combat units will add excitement and variety to any game table.

For use with BattleTech, Total Warfare, Tactical Operations, and Strategic Operations.
