Technical Readout: 3063 is a fan-made technical readout that features 43 Battlemechs and 66 vehicles. Each of the major Inner Sphere Houses is represented, as well as the major Periphery States (Outworlds Alliance, Taurian Concordat, Marian Hegemony, Rim Collection and Magistracy of Canopus), Mercenaries, Word of Blake and Comstar. There are no Clan machines in this work.
From the back coverEdit
"The Successor States united to defeat Clan Smoke Jaguar and halt the advance of the Warriors of Kerensky. With the removal of that threat, the Great Houses’ détente has also come to an end. Tensions erupt into conflict in the St. Ives Compact, civil war in the former Federated Commonwealth, and invasion in the Draconis Combine. Will the downward spiral soon reach its inevitable conclusion? Or is there more bloodshed to come?
New vehicles and BattleMechs have been hurled into combat, carrying experimental weapons and employing new tactics. While former allies contend with each other on the battlefield, the remaining powers of the Inner Sphere watch - and make their own plans."
Battletech Technical Readout: 3063 provides an extensive look at the vehicles and ‘Mechs which have appeared since 3060. Tanks, support vehicles, aircraft and ‘Mechs all appear in a format which lists each machine’s history, capabilities, game stats and some of the more notable Pilots and Mechwarriors who use them.
