if Activision truely were sticking to FASA Cannon on battletech history (which by no means, means they would), Clan battlemechs would not be in *most* mercenary and almost none in pirate companies.

It could be argued that they could have been Salvaged units from the Clan Invasion, that the Inner Sphere was using in that intro (but doubtful, imo).
One possible theory could be that it could have been a Wolf Dragoon sorta thing, but I dont have Wolf Dragoon's touman on hand right now...

ok thinking about it more, Alpha Assault's Timber Wolf must be a custom mech too. It had 2x ER PPCs (which is found in Timber Wolf Alt. A and Alt. D), but it also has 2x Mguns (which is only found in Timber Wolf Prime).

So looking through the clan toumans might be irrelevant

Sorry random thought there.

hehe i think we will never know for sure what activision's intentions with the video actually were until some dev decides to tell us like you said. :)

Basically it is the fighting arm of the clan. Almost synonymous with roster.

So a list of everyone in (and maybe formally in) the warrior caste.

Makes sense in the context I've heard it used in. Hey, will that hidden information in the holographic projector become available ever?

No, but there is a section you can find that is hidden in there.
The grayed stuff is permanently gray though.
