Book icon green.svg BattleTechWiki Procedure
This procedure page provides a step-by-step description of how to complete a task or a detailed explanation of a method of style employed on BattleTechWiki. Consider discussing potential changes on the talk page first.

To quickly create a canon BattleMech article that matches the format in use with other canon BattleMechs:

1. Open the new article.

2. Paste the following code into the edit field:


{{InfoBoxBattleMech
|image=
|name=
|manufacturer=
|production year=
|model=
|introduced=
|class=
|cost=
|mass=
|Tech Base=
|chassis=
|armor=
|engine=
|comsys=
|T&T=
|heat sinks=
|speed=
|speed with MASC=
|speed with TSM=
|jumpjets=
|armament=
|BV (1.0)=
|BV (2.0)=
}} 



==Description==


==Weapons and Equipment==


==Variants==


==Design Quirks==


==References==
<references />


==Bibliography==


[[Category:BattleMechs|{{PAGENAME}}]]

3. If a field is unknown, leave it blank.

4. If a 'Mech does not have MASC and/or jumpjets, completely remove the appropriate line of code (ex: |speed with MASC=).

5. For the image field, just the name of the image is sufficient. e.g., Example.jpg, Example.png, etc.

6. Fill in the four sections (Description, Weapons and Equipment, Variants, Bibliography) to the best of your capability.

7. Click on the Show preview button and review your article for mistakes.

8. Write a brief memo in the Summary field.

9. Press the Save page button.

10. Bask in the pride of your article, with our thanks.
