Description[]

Technical Readout: 3027 (abbreviated TRO: 3027), is a fan produced Mini-TRO created by unspecified Battletech fan author. The book is a basic Military Reference Guide like other Technical Readouts written for BattleTech universe, however no background information per unit featured. This book includes stats for BattleMechs which were built or intended originally with Star League Technology. Instead being made Mechs extinct, these designs continue to survive. In the course of the centuries, they were downgraded and adapted to Succession Wars Technology commonly used as of years 3027.

This book can be seen as a "What If" product. Where mech that were extinct and very rare BattleMechs canon, turn out had survived the Succession Wars and retrofitted with lesser technology.

Book Description[]

This compendium to the 3025 technical readout covers Star League Era Battlemechs that have been forced to undergo radical revisions in the face of the ravages of lost tech. Many of these ‘mechs are produced in facilities that have been restored after severe damage or destruction during the meat-grinder of the Succession Wars. Others have been born from designs and schematics long thought useless. Most of these designs were believed to be lost, but desperation and innovation in the face of severe adversity has led to a new generation of less capable but no less effective designs. In many cases they are slower, less capable of shedding heat and employing shorter range or less accurate ballistic, missile and energy weapons. But despite all of these handicaps, each is a welcome addition to the forces of the Successor State or mercenary unit that employ them.

Canonicity[]

This book features canon images, which features canon 'Mechs, but downgraded. These downgraded machines are not necessary canon stats wise. Included are 'Mech developed from Star League blue prints later used by it's descendants, the Clans.

Notes[]

  • This is the r version of the TRO. There we're more mechs listed in this, however for unknown reason the content was cut down to it's current number of Mechs listed above. The book's original index page still shows what designs were featured in the book originally. It is believed that this PDF that is downloadable is a revised version. It's believed that they were removed due to Canon stats being published the featured mechs with Succession Wars Technology / Level I Rule.
  • This book was created prior to Technical Readout 3085 and newer were published. Some information from older source may come into conflict with these later newer sources. Some downgraded 'Mechs listed in this book are parallel to the canon ones. Some Mechs listed in this book are missing, such as the Xanthos for example.
