BattleTech: Interstellar Operations: BattleForce


Marshal your forces and prepare to conquer the Inner Sphere! Interstellar Operations: BattleForce provides a sliding zoom that can scale from a quick game on your table up to the macro level, allowing players to assume the roles of House Lords and dominate the galaxy!

BattleForce is a complete, all-in-one-book game system of combat on a grand scale, but tailored to your interest at the gaming table.

  • Play lightning-fast, large-scale games like battalion vs battalion or conquer a planet with multiple regiments.
  • Not large enough? Invade an entire sector of a House as armies clash across a dozen systems.
  • Still not large enough? Become a Clan Khan or House Leader and amass all the industrial might of your empire to protect your worlds and defeat your enemies!

Note: The original publication of Interstellar Operations had rules for playing in alternate eras which can now be found in the Interstellar Operations: Alternate Eras.

The PDF bookmarks are not good. A good chunk of them go to the title page.

Why is this product not searchable in the DriveThruRPG search? I had to google it to find it...

I have the original Interstellar Operations, is this a reprint of the old book put into 2 parts, or a re-write with new rules?

It's almost as big as the original book, mainly because it includes ALL BattleForce rules, which were previously split between earlier printings of Strategic and Interstellar Operations.

If you already have all these older printings, there is probably nothing new, though bear in mind that new errata will only be written for the newer books.

(Though I seem to recall that the BattleForce rules got a slight overhaul to be more compatible with Alpha Strike)

Thanks for sharing this - seems CPL and FASA before them like to reprint the same content over and over - making me more and more disappointed with each generation. I really wish they would complete some of the new content that were started back in 2016 with the combat manuals

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.
