History of[edit]

I started in 1994 after finding BattleTech 3rd Edition at a local gaming store. Getting into web programming around the same time, this site was born. Eventually, I began searching far and wide for every BattleTech file and tidbit I could get my hands on, and compiled it into the site.

The site has gone through several designs, with the core content growing every year. I've put in a lot of time and energy into the site, and feel it's a good resource for the BattleTech community.

In October 2006, I converted all of into a wiki with hopes that the site would morph to what the community needed. From there it's grown into what you see today!

Thank you to everyone who helps out!
