The mod is pretty much Classic Battletech but put into more of TA's scale of battle. it supposed to feel and emulate most of the classic battle tech universe yet still be a fun rts like TA, with the obvious restrictions of the TA engine. Right now it is in beta testing phase, and there are 2 factions. inner sphere and clan, 2 tiers light and medium. The last tier is being worked on now which which will have the heavies and assault class mechs, vehicles, and air support. It will probably be included in the next release. After its release I will probably fill in a few holes with some more units to help game play and balance.
Beta 1.33 is out and with it heavies and assaults! Nothing says I love you this valentines day like a 100 ton assault mech... :E Well get it while its hot! And please report bugs! Comments critique also welcome. 6 new factories, new units added to medium and light factories. Anti mech infantry for inner sphere, and orbital bombardments... So many new units I need to count them! (seriously :\ ) Also help wanted if any one would like to join the team to he
