Yep, first one ever. Not even CGL has produced one for the masses yet, which seems nuts since they must have tested the game at some point.... right?
Anyway, this was created with a tool I stayed up too late last night writing. It is a very simple little tool, and just lets you plug in values, and it outputs the card. AND I added command line support, so if you have a list of stats, it'll output them without interaction quickly and easily for you! I did it using the older .NET 2.0 as well, to avoid incompatibilities.
ONE issue though.... anybody know the exact font used or that should be used? I went with Helvetica but it wasn't a perfect match. Then again, since this is the FIRST card, who knows?
I'll be available for download tonight, as well the 60 or so cards in the Alpha Strike book.
EDIT: Nevermind, I made them all already. Though I need to point to record sheet background art instead of TRO. I also decided to go from a command line input, which means slow app startup, to an interface within the exe that lets you just copy/paste values from excel. I'll also add color background support, so you can print cards in the "faction colors" they are in the Alpha Strike book.
Anyway, download link, with the executable, AND a batch file I used to create them (though it'll be useless tonight with the new release):
Not a lot of error checking, and I'm not yet changing the PV based on the SKILL, but all that will be done tonight. If anybody has the font that should be used these would be *perfect*.
Oh, and also in this batch are the consolidated lance/star and platoon/binary cards, so you can play larger battles! I did have to add a BIR there, which stands for "battlefield intelligence rating" for the larger units. They are NOT canon, but all the single units are.
Enjoy, let me know what you think!

And yet ANOTHER update, boy I'm busy today!
Though I still have some work to do, I did find the font, duplicated the outlined text, and found a decent background texture. However, the canon version still looks better... the rest is going to be much harder to duplicate for me :(
