It is the 31st century, a time of endless wars that rage across human-occupied space. As star empires clash, these epic wars are won and lost by BattleMechs: 30-foot-tall, humanoid metal titans bristling with lasers, autocannons, and other lethal weapons. Your elite force of MechWarriors drives these juggernauts into battle, proudly holding your factions flag high, intent on expanding the power and glory of your realm. Will they become legends, or forgotten casualties? Only your skill and luck will determine their fate! Presenting the rules of the BattleTech game system as never before, Total Warfare features all the rules for various units that have a direct impact on the deadly battlefields of the 31st century in a unified rules set: from BattleMechs to ProtoMechs, Combat Vehicles to Support Vehicles, infantry to aerospace fighters and DropShips. Interwoven and meticulously updated, Total Warfare provides the most detailed and comprehensive rules set published to date for BattleTech - the perfect companion for standard tournament play.
