About this Site

When I first got involved in the BattleTech universe, the amount of information present on the Internet was almost limitless. Unfortunately, that information was scattered over upteen sites, with some information partially "fictionalized" by the faction putting up the site.

This website is basically somewhere where I can gather together and park information on the BattleTech universe, and also to put up some opinions and comments. BattleTech and MechWarrior are of course registered trademarks of FASA Corporation. Most of the information in this website have been gathered from public websites across the internet. Much as I would like to acknowledge the various people who have spent time putting in the information, unfortunately similar data was found over many different websites. Thus it is next to impossible to know who were the original authors.

Let me state that I am interested in BattleTech more for the storyline and novels, rather than the games themselves. The MechWarrior and MechCommander game series were a bonus.

The two main reasons why I am interested in BattleTech are
(1) the technology is plausible and can conceivably be invented sometime in the future (read: no mystical stuff like "the force" and magic); and
(2) there are NO aliens in the BT universe.
BattleTech is about humans and human nature, and the politics that go with it.

I go by the name of the "188th Barak Brigade" in BattleTech discussion boards, that brigade being the historically famous and gallant Israeli armoured brigade that stood firm in the Golan Heights against overwhelming odds during the 1973 Yom Kippur war, being almost annhilated in the process.
