BattleTech: Tactical Handbook


Thirty-one hours ago your lance commander ordered you into this position. Twenty-eight hours ago you finished draping the thermal camo tarps over your 'Mech. And for the past 27 hours you've been sitting in your cockpit, systems on minimum power, waiting in the dark - waiting for the Clans.

Suddenly your thermal sensors detect multiple 'Mechs moving 100 meters directly ahead. Your fingers fly over the controls, disengaging PPC field inhibitors, hot-loading LRMs... green board. A single pull of the trigger sends fiery missile plumes and white-hot plasma streaking through the air, and the night erupts in a leathal inferno...

The BattleTech Tactical Handbook is an advanced-rules supplement for the BattleTech game universe. The Handbook provides advanced rules and equipment that enable players to add new depth and intensity to their games. Guidelines for creating long-term campaigns and double-blind games, formulas for calculating the combat values of all BattleTech combat units, detailed descriptions of advanced weapon systems and more make the BattleTech Tactical Handbook a necessity for the serious BattleTech player.

Does this have enough rules to build a Mech and conduct PvP battles?

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.
