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 Support Vehicle article that matches the format in use with other canon Support Vehicles:

1. Open the new article.

2. Paste the following code into the edit field:


{{InfoBoxSupportVehicle
| image                  = [[Image:*.***|191px]]
| Name                   =
| Manufacturer           =
| Production Year        = <!-- Optional field -->
| Year Reference         = <!-- Optional field -->
| Use                    =
| Tech Base              =
| Chassis Type (Size)    =
| Equipment Rating       =
| Cost                   = <!-- Optional field -->
| Introduced             =
| Mass                   =
| Structural Integrity   = <!-- Optional field -->
| Speed                  = <!-- Legacy optional field -->
| Top Speed              = <!-- Legacy optional field -->
| Cruise                 = <!-- Optional field, km/h -->
| Flank                  = <!-- Optional field, km/h -->
| Safe Thrust            = <!-- Optional field, in g -->
| Max Thrust             = <!-- Optional field, in g -->
| Station Keeping Thrust = <!-- Optional field -->
| Power Plant            = 
| Power Plant Type       = <!-- Optional field -->
| Fuel (Type/Range)      =
| comsys                 = <!-- Communications System Optional field -->
| T&T                    = <!-- Targetting and Tracking system Optional field -->
| Fire Control System    = <!-- Optional field -->
| Turret                 = <!-- Optional field -->
| Armament               =
| Heat Sinks             = <!-- Optional field -->
| Fitted Equipment       = <!-- Optional field -->
| Armor                  =
| BAR                    = <!-- Optional field -->
| Crew                   = <!-- Optional field -->
| BV (1.0)               = <!-- Optional field -->
| BV (2.0)               = <!-- Optional field -->
}}

3. Delete the fields from image line from the code if you do not have a corresponding picture.

4. Many of the fields are optional, and have comments in place to indicate that. You can leave those fields blank, and they won't show up in the finished article. Note: Thrust is presented on Sarna.net in terms of g, rather than thrust points. 2 thrust points = 1 g. When quoting from a canon source, you must divide the listed thrust points in the source by 2 to obtain the correct value for use in an article.

5. Fill in the six sections (Description, Equipment and Capacities, Cargo, Variants, Design Quirks, Bibliography) to the best of your capability. Added "Weapons and Equipment" instead of Equipment and Capabilities if the support vehicle is not armed or meant for combat. Put name of primary source material and link under, Bibliography section.

6. Delete any categories that are not applicable.

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

8. Press the Save page button.

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