This tech tracker is designed to address the hassles in technology management and make the game progress faster. Each player has a checklist to quickly record the effects of techs, so that you (and other players) can see your abilities at a glance. The effects of tech are sorted by unit, so it is possible to quickly determine the combat strength and abilities of each unit.
The layout of the reference cards is meant to be small and compact. They are designed for experienced players who have a pretty good idea of what techs are available.
