This summary article provides an overview of the "Unit Digest", "Stable Report" and "Ship Profile" type publications that have been published as exclusive content through the BattleCorps website.

  • Unit Digests provide information on smallish, less notable military commands in the same fashion as larger units are presented in the Field Manual series of sourcebooks, typically presenting an overview over the unit and its role and history, its individual sub-units, personnell files for six selected unit members, and random allocation tables appropriate for whatever type of vehicle the unit in question typically employs.
  • Stable Reports depict one of the smaller and less notable MechWarrior Stables in the Solaris Games on Solaris VII or any other world featuring 'Mech duelling events. Similar to Unit Digests, they typically contain a description of the stable with separate sections on Instructors, Technicians, Facilities and Tactics, as well as a rundown of available 'Mechs, a Random Allocation Table and some information about six notable characters from the stable.
  • Ship Profiles present one specific space ship and its crew during a given time period, including a rundown of the command, escort, gunnery and security staff, and brief dossiers on notable crew members.

Articles are listed here with the exact same name as listed on BattleCorps, irrespective of possibly deviating names within the document proper or the name of the downloadable PDF file.

Published 16 December 2010

Hawke's Horde was a pirate group based in the Taurian Concordat just after the turn of the Thirty-First Century. They had a short-but-violent life.

Description of a small mercenary unit-turned-pirate force as of 3013. They consisted of a lance of 'Mechs and a reinforced armor company.

The initial version of this Unit Digest had a faulty random allocation table for vehicles which wrongly included the Savannah Master hovercraft; as this vehicle did not yet exist in 3013, the Unit Digest was updated with a corrected version that did not list this vehicle.

RWS Krait[edit]

Published 19 February 2011

Matthew Hawk shows us one of the smaller WarShips of the Rim Worlds Republic Navy, from just before the Star League fell!

A former Terran Hegemony vessel sold to the Rim Worlds Republic, the RWS Krait, a Tracker-class surveillance vessel, was mothballed for a time but reactivated in 2764 and refitted to serve as an ambush craft. Unwilling to serve Stefan Amaris after learning of his actions, Captain Birch and his crew took the ship and disappeared into the Deep Periphery in 2769.
