BattleForce is the BattleTech game of lightning-fast combat. Units in BattleForce are represented in a more abstract manner, but still retain their individuality, allowing for fast playing games. It's also a perfect system for playing large games.
This zip file contains only the rulebooks published in the BattleForce (1987) and BattleForce 2 (1997) box sets. They provide a great snapshot of the development of this rules system across the lifetime of the BattleTech line.
While players are free to use any rules set they wish, both of these rulebooks have been superseded by the BattleForce: Standard Rules and BattleForce: Advanced Rules published in Strategic Operations.
NOTE: Both PDFs are scans of print books. It may contain modified illustrations of BattleMechs that are not currently used in BattleTech.
