"In 2781 the Star League was officially abandoned, ending a two hundred year-long Golden Age. In 2785 the Successor
Lords launched a series of massive conflicts that would rage for centuries and become known as The Succession Wars. Such
endless warfare has taken its toll and by the Fourth Succession War of 3028, the technology employed on the battlefields
is a mere shadow of the height of the Star League. However, the discovery of the Helm Memory Core is beginning to unlock
such sought-after secrets, with new BattleMechs and experimental technologies starting to make a debut for the first
time in centuries.
Classic BattleTech Technical Readout: 3039ô is the perfect ìfirst Technical Readoutî companion to the Classic
BattleTech Introductory Box Set. Combining the íMechs, vehicles and aerospace fighters previously found in Technical
Readout: 3025, Revised and Technical Readout: 3026, Revised, this volume features some of the most common units of the
Succession Wars. Each machine is illustrated in detail, accompanied by a description of its history, capabilities, game
stats, along with their most famous pilots."
