Overview[edit]

During Independence Weaponry's revamp of the old Blankenburg facility on Soul, they discovered that 90% of the parts used in the Katana were actually interchangeable with those of the BattleMaster. Not one to waste such an opportunity, Independence rushed to set up a second manufacturing line on Soul to produce the popular and venerable command 'Mech. When Blankenburg took back control of the facility in 3064, it was a simple matter for them to complete the upgrade and put the BattleMaster into production.[citation needed]

Manufacturing[edit]

Blankenburg Technologies has manufacturing centers on the following planets:


Soul[edit]

Note: During the Jihad, the facility on Soul suffered no losses of capital and personnel and had a full production volume of 100% in 3079.[1][2]
