Publisher's Description[]

"Overseeing the Battlefield

Many intelligence groups compiled Technical Readouts on the various types of weaponry that have been used on the battlefield. These TRO’s as they have been called have mainly focused on House, Star League or Clan designs. Though admittedly Solaris VII designs have made there way into some TROs.

In the last 25 years the Inner Sphere has seen an explosive amount of new designs. Giving many intelligence organizations a very hard time to document and keep track of every new design. Several organizations on Arc Royal made an effort to document the missing designs and publish them. While some of these designs have partaken in well documented battles or other events they have not been publicized for one reason or another.

However, do not be surprised though, if you never see any of the designs in any battle you take part in. If you do encounter one though, be glad you had access to this TRO so that you could be prepared for whatever your enemy brings against you. This publication is available for download at your local ComStar station. It will be updated regularly with newly found designs.

TRO: Lords of the Battlefield provides descriptions, game statistics and illustrations of fan made ‘Mechs, vehicle and battle armor designs. The designs come from multiple eras and use of custom or tech level 3 was discouraged.'"



Intended to be supplement to the canon Technical Readout: 3067, the book is not canon. While most images were created by the fans however, many resemble their canon counter parts since some are variants of those designs. Very few of the designs uses
