Having played a few Careers lately, today I decided I wanted to revisit Campaign mode. At first everything seemed to be as I remembered it, but then I noticed the Store in Ur Cruinne was selling LBX ammo. Then, when running an Ambush convoy mission in Bellerophon, the vehicles I ran into included a TAG Galleon, a Striker with a NARC beacon, and a UAC 5 tank.

While it's kind of funny seeing Heavy Metal content showing up in the Campaign, is there any way to run a campaign where HM conent ISN'T available? It's kind of hard to maintain the 3025 mood when the Periphery is flooded with post-Clan invasion tech.

Short of uninstalling Heavy Metal, I don't think so. Your best bet is probably a mod, so you might have better luck asking in the mod forum.

Just for the record, the UAC/5, LB 10-X, and NARC were all canonically reintroduced in 3035; TAG was reintroduced a bit later in 3044, but none of them are post-Clan Invasion.
