I can't find Advanced Units and Equipment on here, has it not been published yet?

It's been out for a while, and it looks like it's still on DriveThru for those who've bought it previously, but it doesn't appear to be showing up in the search or in the CGL product listing. I'm not sure why, though ... I'll put up a message on the BT forum to see if anyone knows why.

Hello, As a previous purchaser of tac ops on dtrpg, I note that while I can still continue to download that edition, this edition appears to be a new addition? The store page for my copy of tac ops says the title has been removed. Do I need to purchase this manual again to have the most recent edition?

The recent republication split the old Tactical Operations book into two pieces.

So why is it not in my DTRPG library? Why do I have to buy it twice?

You could use this as optional/advanced rules to build on either Total Warfare or Battle[M]ech Manual. As far as I know, there is no current product called the "BattleTech Manual".

I may be a little late for Michael, but maybe this helps someone else:
This builds upon Total Warfare or the BattleMech Manual and is not the add on for the TechManual. The Advanced construction rules are now covered in a seperate edition, that is called: "Tactical Operations: Advanced Units & Equipment".

It's odd that the "Tactical Operations: Advanced Units & Equipment" doesn't show as a product anymore. Since everything else is available, I wonder if there was another issue?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
