Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. Confict expected to last months to achieve objects. Players are staged up to the fnal level of play, where they can assume the roles of a House Lord or Clan Khan and dominate the galaxy; IO rules represent months in the BattleTech universe, the time frame for conquering numerous star systems.

Interstellar Operations contains complete rules for gen- erating and running any type or size of force, as well as the BattleTech Strategic Game: The Inner Sphere in Flames.

This com- prehensive rules set governs the running of an entire factions military as a player tries to conquer or defend numerous solar systems.

More importantly, the Strategic Game contains rules that allow players to stage any portion of a given confict back through the various rule sets, as they desirefrom the simple, easy-to-use rules of confict for the Strategic Game, down to BattleForce, or all the way back down to a standard BattleTech game as presented in Total Warfare and Tactical Operations. Players have complete fexibility for any type of confict in which they wish to engage. This means you can use as many or as few of the rules in this book as you want.

In fact, this book contains so many new rules that we recommend you try them out a few at a time, rather than attempting to use them all at once. Furthermore, most of the new rules and equipment here can be added individually to a standard game. You can add rules and pieces of equipment to your game one at a timemost of the rules do not rely on other rules in this book to work in existing Classic BattleTech games.

This allows you to tailor your BattleTech game to your taste by including only those rules that you fnd make the game more interesting or fun. Use whatever new rules and equipment you want and disregard the rest.

In a game system with such a long and rich heritage as Classic BattleTechthis rulebook alone draws from dozens of diferent sources across a large number of yearsthat complexity is even greater. Developers and writers have gone to great efort to make these rules as com- prehensive as possiblenot only from one section to the next in this book, but in how such advanced weapons and rules interact with the core game and construction rules as pre- sented in Total Warfare and TechManual.

However, the sheer scope of Strategic Operations as with Tactical Operation and the plethora of options provided means that it is not possible to cover all potential situations.The side with the higher score wins. To give each asteroid ute. Second and revised editions. No desertions take place.
