Technical Readout 3050
Technical Readout: 3050, subtitled The Return of Kerensky, introduced the Clan OmniMechs, as well as the first Battle Armor (Elemental), upgraded versions of the 3025 BattleMechs, sourcebook 'Mechs not previously included in a TRO, variants of TRO 2750 'Mechs used in the War of 3039 and new IS designs produced prior to the Clan invasion. Only the new 3050 'Mechs models are listed below, as the listing for the 2750 'Mechs and the 3025 'Mechs can be found in their respective sections.
Technical Readout 3050 Revised Edition
TRO 3050r was also created in regards to the licensing issues associated with the Unseen. The Inner Sphere 'Mechs in TRO 3050r consisted of three groups: new 'Mechs, upgraded TRO 3025r 'Mechs and TRO 2750 'Mechs. Some of the TRO 2750 'Mechs were modified to different variants.
Technical Readout 3055
TRO 3055 introduced the first generation of Inner Sphere 'Mechs built specifically to counter the advancing Clans. The technical readout also introduced Clan Second Line 'Mechs and Clan OmniFighters. The new Inner Sphere 'Mechs listed in TRO 3055 are:
Technical Readout 3055 Upgrade
The 3055 Upgrade serves as an 'in-character' update to the original Technical Readout 3055, with new artwork for the latest BattleMech variants, as well as the Solaris VII 'Mechs. Three Inner Sphere 'Mechs were provided with redesigned artwork (providing the name 'Reseen'), as a precaution against any future copyright issues.
Technical Readout 3058
Technical Readout: 3058 contained a second generation of BattleMechs designed to combat the Clans, including new Inner Sphere OmniMechs. These new designs are built to either upgrade from existing designs or to ape some of the Clans' better known models. Also included are more designs recovered from the Star League database.
Technical Readout 3058 Upgrade
Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade is an 'in-character' year 3067 update to the original technical readout and contains added information on the variants of the previously-listed OmniMechs and BattleMechs. The only major change was to several of the combat vehicles and inclusion of a Star League section, to which some of the previously released 'Mechs were moved (due to their development in the 2nd Star League era).
Technical Readout 3060
Technical Readout: 3060 follows closely on the heels of Technical Readout: 3058, but is based on the two years' worth of development attributed to the rebuilt Star League, as well as intelligence from Operations Bull Dog, Bird Dog and Serpent. Several new Inner Sphere BattleMechs and OmniMechs debuted in this title:
Technical Readut 3067
Technical Readout: 3067 demonstrates the level of technology immediately prior to the Word of Blake Jihad. This book has seven years' worth of newly-developed 'Mechs for the Clans & Inner Sphere. Additionally, there is a large roster of 'Mechs unique to the Word of Blake.
Technical Readout Project Phoenix
Technical Readout: Project Phoenix was published in answer to the calls for the re-release of the long-unpublished Unseen. The title provided redrawn images of the 'Mechs, with an in-character explanation the provided models were variants. These 'Mechs are referred as 'Reseen':
