Alshain Weapons is one of the Draconis Combine's notable manufacturer of light BattleMechs. [1]

Company Profile[edit]

Home Office: East Lime, Tok Do (Circa 3067)[1]

President/CEO: Daimyo Kristof Webber (Circa 3067)[1]

Overview[edit]

Originally headquartered on its namesake world, Alshain Weapons has weathered increasing political upheavals in the 31st Century. When Alshain became part of Free Rasalhague Republic the Combine retained strong economic ties with the new nation and companies such as Alshain Weapons to supply the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery, but this ended when Clan Ghost Bear conquered the bulk of the Republic during the Clan Invasion, with the company forced to destroy their factory on Jarett. Desperate to maintain production of the venerable Panther, the DCMS and the Combine Bureau of Procurement provided Alshain Weapons massive grants to build new facilities within Combine space, with the company ultimately relocating their facility on Krenice to Tok Do. The company has also maintained its vitality via both joint ventures with Luthien Armor Works as well as the acquisition of the faltering Diplan 'Mechyards in 3060.[1] [2]

The company also lost their factory on New Oslo in the Free Rasalhague Republic to Clan Wolf. [citation needed]
