Battletech Alpha Strike: Commander’s Edition fully revises and updates the original version of the rules rulebook. This includes improvements and optional rules from the previous version’s companion.
For centuries, the armies of the Great Houses have fought to reclaim the glory of the fallen Star League, sending regiments of their elite MechWarriors into battle across hundreds of worlds as humanity slid inexorably toward a new Dark Age. The coming of the Clans – descendants of the lost Star League army – did little to stem the slaughter. It only raised the stakes.
Alpha Strike is a fast-playing form of the BattleTech game of futuristic, armoured combat. Developed for the modern wargamer, this book brings players the ability to wage war using the Quick-Strike game system. The Quick-Strike system was first devised for truly large-scale play; Catalyst Game Labs have re-scaled it to the tactical level of classic BattleTech.
