BattleTechnology is a magazine that was published irregularly between 1987 and 1995 by Pacific Rim Publishing Company. It was dedicated to BattleTech, a tabletop game of futuristic combat that was published at the time by FASA Corporation. The magazine includes game scenarios, optional rules, technical specifications for BattleMechs and other units, historical and current events in the fictional BattleTech universe, and short fiction. All of these components were approved by FASA, thus making the magazine an official source of optional materials for the game.Image:battletechnology-sample-cover
