Built For War: Fan TRO (abbreviated TRO: BFW), was a fan project to produce a TRO, however it stalled. Only a mini-TRO was created by the group of Australian Battletech fans.

Despite the only having a Teaser version of the TRO, the art and the book's content still a good read.

Publication Description[]

Get into the Shadows!

Built for War is a TRO for the BattleTech universe that will feature over a hundred new units with original professional art, full write-ups, record sheets and MegaMek files, and more. ‘Mechs are the primary focus, but they’ll be supported by tanks, VTOLs, battle armor, and maybe even an aerospace craft or two. Built for War is set in the Late Republic and Dark Age eras, between 3100 and 3150, and includes new units for Great Houses, Spheroid Clans, and Periphery States alike.


This book is purely fan-based, however features some artists whom have created canon images for units found in Battletech canon.
