The Sorenson's Sabres scenario pack provides detailed historical information about Sorenson's Company of the 5th Sword of Light between 3021 and 3026. Detailed personnel histories (for MechWarrior: The BattleTech Role Playing Game) provide information about the unit's members. The book also provides detailed historical information for their parent regiment, the 5th Sword of Light, from its inception in 2796 through the combat operations of 3026. It also provides a biography of Palmer Conti, the 5th's commanding officer in 3026.

From the back cover

Born in the wake of civil unrest, Sorenson's Sabres are the most feared and respected of Kurita troops, due to their unique composition, deadly efficiency, and ferocious tactics. From fighting Bandit Kings to raids on Davion space, the LAM, AeroSpace Fighter, and 'Mechs of this company get the job done with new tactics and old-fashioned grit.

This scenario set details the history of Sorenson's Sabres, profiles the statistics and combat readiness of the members of the company, and includes 20 scenarios pitting Sorenson's Sabres against a wide variety of colorful opponents.
