Technical Readout: Fan Council 3048 (abbreviated TRO:FC3048), is a fan produced TRO created by a RPG Battletech fan group, which project was over seen by Matt "Sulla" Heerdt. They feature 'Mechs/Battle Armor/DropShips variants which were uniquely made for this book. These units were created for Alternated Universe they had dubbed "Fan Council". However, this is not a formal setting.

Publisher's Description[]

This Technical Readout is based on the fan-run BattleTech universe commonly called the Fan Council. It is a role-playing game ran on the Classic BattleTech forums at www.classicbattletech. com/forums. This particular iteration of the game was set in 3048, just before the Clan Invasion of the Inner Sphere. As part of the game, players can create custom configurations of canon BattleMechs for their characters to use. This book presents some of those custom ‘Mechs.

Outside of the Fan Council game, these designs may be of little use. This book does, however, serve as a sort of tribute to all the work and effort that was put into the game. For those of you that played and submitted your design, I hope you like seeing your design ‘in print.’ For others reading this, take a second and check out the Fan Council game! You might like it and as always, the more the merrier!


This book is not a canon product. However. the mechs & dropships used are canon, just non-canon variants.
