Allied Aerospace manufactured Land Air 'Mechs from 2680 to 2799.

Overview[edit]

Allied Aerospace was the first company to both design and produce a Land Air 'Mech. In 2680, the Star League Defense Force began entertaining design proposals for ’Mechs that could "fly as well as function as light ground ’Mechs".[1] Allied Aerospace was quick to enter the new market and offered their prototype Shadow Hawk LAM design that same year.[2] Theirs was the winning bid and the company was awarded the first contract to produce LAMs for the SLDF.

Unfortunately, due to design flaws and a series of failed test runs, the Shadow Hawk LAM was unable to attract marketable attention, forcing the company to scrap the project.[2] However, development of the Shadow Hawk LAM laid the groundwork for the company's next attempt with the more successful Phoenix Hawk LAM, which debuted just over a decade later with its PHX-HK1 variant. The company continued producing Phoenix Hawk LAMs while further refining LAM technology until the their only factory, located on the planet Pollux, was destroyed in 2799 during the First Succession War.[3][4][5]

Allied Aerospace was also responsible for the manufacture of BlackWasp unmanned aerospace fighters. Designed to augment the Caspar defense drone, BlackWasp production began in 2728 and continued until its manufacturing plant on Pollux was destroyed in 2767.[6]
