Clyde Shipyards is a facility within the Federated Suns over the planet Firgrove, located in the Periphery March.[1]


Originally the Clyde Shipyards were basic maintenance and repair yards for merchant shipping.[2] During and after the Jihad Clyde Shipyards became much more important to the Federated Suns.[1] The shipyards began producing small quantities of the Colossus, the largest Assault DropShip to be constructed by the SLDF during the Star League era, with at least one of the DropShips given to the Medusans mercenary unit as part-payment on the contract for their defense of the Shipyards.[3] They began production of the Arondight DropShip to help take up the slack after the destruction of Galax and the production lines there. In 3079 Clyde announced that they would begin production of Union class DropShips as well.[1] Unfortunately, Blakist sabotage kept production at the shipyards below maximum at least as late as mid-3081.[4]


In 3079 the company's CEO is Thomas Kessler.[1]


Clyde Shipyards has a manufacturing center on the following planet:
