Barcella Alpha is a Clan facility on Barcella in the Kerensky Cluster.

Overview[edit]

Located within their capital on the Clan Homeworld of Barcella, Barcella Alpha was one of the primary production sites for Clan Nova Cat. The factory's main outputs were the Griffin IIC, Shadow Hawk IIC, and Supernova 'Mechs. Naturally, this facility became the designated production site for the Clan's new totem 'Mech, the Nova Cat, in support of Khan Severen Leroux's effort to strengthen the Nova Cat's spirituality following the clans' defeat on Tukayyid in 3052. In 3059 Barcella Alpha completed the first Nova Cat OmniMech.

With the end of Operation Revival and the subsequent Abjuration of Clan Nova Cat in 3060, the Clan ceded its control of the facility to Clan Diamond Shark in exchange for their assistance in relocating to the Inner Sphere. Having been granted leave to settle within their holdings along the Combine border, the Nova Cats engaged in several construction projects to support this new effort. One point of focus was the construction of the Barcella Beta manufacturing complex on Irece. Shortly afterward, a second manufacturing facility christened Barcella Alpha began construction as an expansion of the Beta complex.

Construction of the new Alpha complex was temporarily abandoned following the Word of Blake's attack on the planet in 3072. Construction resumed some time afterwards and the new Barcella Alpha was fully operational no later than 3085, though the known number of production lines is significantly fewer than the original.

Ownership[edit]

Barcella Alpha was originally owned and operated by Clan Nova Cat. As of 3060, the Complex was under the complete control of Clan Diamond Shark.
