Bander BattleMechs is a niche BattleMech refit company.


Owing its formation to the destruction of the Twelfth Star Guard mercenary unit during the Clan Invasion, the unit's former chief tech Felifious Bander realized defeating the invaders with Succession Wars era technology was an impossible task. Entering the safer and more lucrative BattleMech refitting business, Bander used his considerable reputation to convince other former mercenary techs to join his firm, quickly establishing a reputation for quality at competitive prices.[1]

Using his customer's refits and his experience against the invaders, Bander also developed a BattleMech design, the Bandersnatch, which he boldly proclaimed to be the most versatile design in the Inner Sphere. However, due to the size of the company, each Bandersnatch is built by hand and takes approximately ten months to complete, with barely a half-dozen in existence by 3055.[1]

It is unknown what became of the company during the Word of Blake Jihad. It is known that Terra Firma had joined the Word of Blake Protectorate by 3071. [citation needed]
